As of today, legendary Italian club AC Milan have announced a new kit partnership with German sporting giants Puma. Effective from the 1st July 2018, the deal sees two of the most passionate, iconic & ambitious names in the global game brought together.
Incredibly, Milan had worn adidas kits since they were first introduced in 1998! Back then they had the likes of Paolo Maldini, George Weah, Ibrahim Ba & Alessandro Costacurta playing for them. But now, the new generation of the club's stars will be wearing the Puma crest on their shirts.
Milan are one of the most iconic clubs in the game, let alone in Italian football. In their 119 year history they've won 18 international titles, including an astonishing 7 Champion's League titles! Now with new owners at the helm, the club are looking to recapture some of that former glory & create a new golden era at the San Siro.
Bjørn Gulden, Puma's chief executive said: "If you ask me, the Rossoneri jersey is one of the most iconic jerseys in football. We are looking forward to the next chapter of this legendary football club being with Puma".
Milan's chief commercial officer, Marco Fassone, was equally excited: "Puma represent a major international brand & we'll be proceeding together in the next few football seasons, striving to reach new & extraordinary goals off & on the pitch".
Puma's roster of top clubs is growing ever more impressive, with Arsenal, Dortmund, Italy, Leicester & Newcastle Utd all donning their shirts.
Will Puma be the right move for AC Milan going forward? Well we'll soon find out when we get a look at their first Puma kit this summer - exciting times ahead!
What is it about outfield players having to go in goals that we love so much? Is it so we can laugh at their poor positioning & handling while between the sticks, or do we deep down hope they'll have an absolute blinder. Ultimately, it probably stems from the fact that (almost) everyone loves an underdog, [...]
While watching a football montage video on Youtube recently (that just so happened to have an excellent soundtrack) we got to thinking about the best songs that tie in to the beautiful game. After much debate, we settled on a top 8 & here it is... (for the record, we're not including any songs specifically written [...]
Flares & football have always been a controversial mixture. They're banned in UK grounds (and many other countries too) but they have always had a romantic haze they bring to proceedings. Watch any South American football match or some of the more heated Serie A games in Italy & you'll see the way flares can [...]
Since they were formed in 1949 after an acrimonious split involving the Dassler brothers, adidas have become world-renowned for not only their quality, but for their innovation when it comes to football boots.
