Ghana's No. 1

Puma's uniquely designed Black Stars jersey for Nations Cup unveiled

Published on: 07 November 2011

Puma unveiled the new Ghana national team football kit for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations at an event in London.

Striker Asamoah Gyan was the first player to wear the shirt which seems to appeal more to Ghana fans than the previous other designs.

Unlike the previous Black Stars jersey, the new one is a unique design with different stars and all the colours of Ghana on the right hand side.

The UAE-based attacker was among the several other players including Samuel Eto’o Yaya Toure, Stephen Pienaar, and a few others who were at the launch.

The 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.
