The exciting new partnership adds to PUMA’s existing LaLiga collaboration and significantly expands PUMAs on pitch visibility and strengthens its position as a leading football brand.
The partnership paves the way for a new era in Lega Serie A. One that will be amplified through PUMA’s Faster Football platform that focusses on performance, innovation and culture. A mission that aligns perfectly with the ambitions of Lega Serie A and their aim to be the world’s most beautiful league, promote social responsibility and drive innovation on and off the pitch. Reflected in Lega Serie A’s Mantra ‘We are Calcio’.
