Puma clinch Marseille deal
French sports daily L'Equipe is claiming that the five-year deal, beginning from the 2018/2019 season, is expected to be worth around €14 million (US$16 million) per year, an improvement on the French soccer team's current deal with Adidas, believed to be worth US$11 million a season. That deal has just over a year left to run.
The agreement, a major coup for Puma, particularly as Marseille's current supplier is the brand's historic rival, Adidas. The companies were established by two brothers and are both still headquartered in the German city of Herzogenaurach.
Marseille are currently fifth in Ligue 1, the top tier of French soccer, a significant improvement from last season's 13th placed finish.
