Puma is expected to answer pressing concerns over the availability of these jerseys for the African-based fans of these teams.

The German firm has been criticized for not making the apparel readily available to fans of the various African teams.

There have been complaints from fans of the Black Stars in the past over the quality and style of the designs forGhana.

Fans have been worried that no consultations are held with the Ghana FA or fans before colours of the jerseys or styles are released.

Also availability of the jerseys for purchase has been an issue for the fans to purchase online or in shops across the country which has sparked the trade in fake Puma Ghana jerseys.

Despite these concerns, Puma’s sponsorship of the Black Stars has been beneficial in financial terms since it signed Ghana in 2005.

In a deal worth US$ 25m, the German company gives the GFA an annual retainer, sales royalties and performance bonuses, as well as sports footwear and clothing.

Ghana’s contract with Puma ends next year.

The Africa Cup of Nations starts on 21 January and ends on 12 February.
