ALBUQUERQUE, NM (January 20, 2020) New Mexico United announced this morning a new partnership with global sports brand PUMA. Although PUMA is partnered with many soccer teams, New Mexico United will be the first current American professional soccer team to partner with the dynamic brand.
"We are thrilled to be Puma's first current professional American soccer team and sit alongside global partners such as Manchester City FC and AC Milan. As we move forward as a team we will continue to search for partners that are aligned with our mission of positive change through art and sport,” said Peter Trevisani, Majority Owner and CEO of New Mexico United. “Puma not only gets our mission, but they are also now a catalyst in its fulfillment. Our players, technical team and staff are honored to represent Puma. You should also expect to see us collaborating on unique merchandise such as sneakers as well as art activations and other unique experiences."
PUMA x New Mexico United winter products will be available for fans to purchase at the pre-season friendly versus Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC on February 8, 2020, at the University of New Mexico Soccer Complex. The complete line will be available for purchase at the team store (3500 Central Ave. SE, Ste. 2, Albuquerque, NM 87106) and online starting March 1st and will include T-shirts, hoodies, outerwear, sweatpants and much more.
Players will begin training in PUMA gear this week, and fans will have new 2020 kits to look forward to, which will feature the iconic PUMA cat across from the team’s black & yellow club shield. The team is excited to continue into the new season with jersey sponsors Meow Wolf and KraneShares, who will be prominently featured on the new PUMA kits. Away kits will be revealed at the team’s annual Black & Yellow Bash on February 29th at Electric Playhouse. Details for this event will be released soon.
