PUMA to be Official Supplier of The Black Stars

PUMA and the Ghana Football Association (GFA) announced a multi-year extension of their successful partnership through the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

The announcement was made by PUMA CEO Jochen Zeitz and GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi during a special reception in Ghana's capital of Accra one day after the 2008 African Cup of Nations kicked off with a colorful and stunning opening ceremony and a victory by host Ghana, 2-1, over Guinea.

“Ghana was one of the most inspiring stories of the 2006 World Cup, capturing the world's attention with their exciting style of play and passion for the game,” said Zeitz.

“PUMA is proud to extend our partnership with them for many years to come and we wish The Black Stars the best of luck during the next three weeks in the African Cup on their home soil.”

The Black Stars have been a dominant force on the African continent for the past half century, winning the African Cup of Nations four times (1963, 1965, 1978 and 1982) and finishing second on three occasions.

They have previously hosted or co-hosted (with Nigeria) the African Cup on three occasions, winning twice as host in 1963 and 1978.

In 2006, the team made its first-ever World Cup appearance, upsetting the Czech Republic and the United States in group
play before falling to Brazil in a Round of 16 game in which Ghana controlled the pace of play for much of the first half.

“We are proud to be partners with such a global brand that has made a commitment to football in both Ghana and the African continent on the whole,” said Federation President Nyantakyi.
