PUMA have announced that Uruguay and Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has signed with PUMA Football in a deal worth £1-million a year.
Suarez, 31, is a hero of both club and country. Born and raised in Salto, Uruguay, he hustled his way to the top and established himself as one of the world’s top strikers – a journey that is all about goals.
He has been top goal-scorer at least once in each of the European Leagues in which he has competed (Holland, England and Spain), scoring more than 20 goals in every season since 2012 (more than 400 in total). Suárez has also scored 53 times for Uruguay.
‘I’m happy to join the PUMA Family,’ said Suarez. I appreciate the spirit of PUMA rocking the establishment of football as I have the same spirit. I always fight to be a top scorer. I am sure we will write a cool chapter together.’
Suarez will wear PUMA FUTURE Football boots. The first football boot with a truly customizable fit, PUMA Future’s NETFIT technology allows players to lace to their unique needs, no matter the foot shape or lock-down need. The latest version available on the market is the PUMA FUTURE 2.1 (Uprising Pack) in a shocking-orange colourway.
‘We are delighted to partner with Luis Suarez. For years Luis has proven to be one of the best strikers in the world and his fighting spirit fits perfectly with our brand positioning to be the gamechanger in football,’ said Johan Adamsson, Global Director of Sports Marketing & Sports Licensing for PUMA. ‘Luis joins PUMA as another testament to our strategy of ‘no PUMA without Football, no Football without PUMA.’
To celebrate Luis Suarez joining PUMA’s roster of Football talents, PUMA has collaborated with Bleacher Report Football to create an animation.
