Oldham Athletic is delighted to announce a hugely exciting partnership with Puma to become the club’s new technical kit supplier.
Starting from the 2023/24 season, the three-year deal will see the German sportswear company supply the playing kit, training and replica wear for all teams within the club.
Founded in 1948, Puma is one of the largest sportswear brands in the world, working with some of the leading football clubs to build on its rich heritage across a range of sports.
The current portfolio of British clubs partnering with Puma include Manchester City, West Bromwich Albion, Wigan Athletic, Blackpool, Barnsley and Peterborough United.
The club is thrilled to have worked closely with Puma over recent months with a view to producing bespoke designs for three new outfield kits for the 2023/24 campaign which will be launched closer to the new season.
Latics CEO Darren Royle said: “Puma is a truly iconic sports brand and we are very excited to have an opportunity to work alongside a company who supply some of the biggest football teams in the world.
“We have recently developed an excellent relationship with Puma’s Brian Morley, who has a wealth of experience in dealing with football clubs across the north west.
“A number of Latics season ticket holders work at the company’s Manchester office and this is a partnership we want to build on for the future.
“Supporters can look forward to three fantastic kit designs for next season, as well as a great range of replica wear and other items.”
The club’s Head of Retail Relations, Jimmy Schofield, added: “Throughout our discussions with Puma there has been a genuine appreciation of what we are trying to achieve as a club.
“Next season’s kits will look first class but there is a lot more to our partnership than that. This agreement opens up so many retail opportunities which fans and sponsors should be excited about.
“We have seen in recent weeks how well our new lines of stock have been received and we look forward to working with Puma in developing our branded lines.”
Jamie Oakes, Puma’s Strategic Account Sales Manager, added: “We are delighted to be welcoming Latics into the Puma family and want to thank Darren, James, Peter and the team for welcoming us to Boundary Park.
“As a brand we aim to bring some of the fastest products to the market and our partnership with Oldham will be no different. We hope the fans enjoy some of the unique bespoke designs we are creating with the club and the inspirations we have taken from the club itself and its rich heritage.
"We look forward to this new chapter and bringing the Forever Faster movement to Oldham Athletic.”
