Athletic brand PUMA & Egypt extend partnership
Nov '08
PUMA and the Egyptian Football Association announced a multi-year extension of their successful partnership beyond the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, which was first initiated in 2005. Under the agreement, PUMA will remain the Official Supplier of "The Pharaos" and to all its associated teams.

“The long-term extension of our partnership with the Egyptian Football Association underlines PUMA's commitment to support African football”, said Jochen Zeitz, Chairman and CEO of PUMA. “We are the leading football supplier on the African continent with 11 national teams under contract as Africa becomes the center of attention in the world of football with the 2010 African Cup of Nations in Angola leading up to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.”

“We are delighted to continue our partnership with PUMA and are grateful for the excellent cooperation in the past years,” said Samir Zaher, President of the Egyptian Football Association. “We are proud to be partners with such a global brand that has made a commitment to football in both Egypt and the African continent as a whole.”

The sixth time and reigning African Champions (1957, 1959, 1986, 2006 and 2008) qualified twice for the World Cup in 1934 as well as 1990 and will face Rwanda, Algeria and Zambia in the final stages of the qualification to the 2010 tournament. In the first qualification game – taking place on March 28th 2009 - they will play against the team of Zambia.
