PUMA has announced signing USMNT and Chelsea FC star Christian Pulisic to a long-term deal and PUMA will commit to growing the game of soccer in America for the next generation.
“In many ways, it was a no-brainer for me to join PUMA. With its world-class and innovative products, PUMA embodies the culture of sports on and off the pitch. Their technical innovations revolve around speed, which is one of my biggest weapons. It’s an honor to follow in the PUMA footsteps of some of the greatest players to have ever played the game, Pele, Maradona, and Johan Cruyff,” said Pulisic.
Pulisic and PUMA have made a commitment to grow the sport through various programs and opportunities for young athletes in the U.S., by way of product donations, camps and clinics, renovation pitches, and more for underserved athletes.
“Anyone who loves soccer, should be able to play,” said Christian Pulisic. “We have a platform in sports and if something is truly meaningful, you can really help to open people’s eyes and make changes. What I love about PUMA is they share my passion and my goal to support youth soccer in America and to help the next generation to chase their dreams.”
Pulisic, alongside the likes of Neymar and Antoine Griezmann, will be the face of PUMA’s Fast Football movement and the PUMA ULTRA. In addition, PUMA tapped boot customizer Silni for a custom pair of PUMA ULTRA 1.3 boots that Pulisic will debut for the Super Cup final on August 11th.
