The Paraguayan Football Association (APF) has signed a two-year kit supplier agreement with Germany-based sportswear manufacturer Puma.

The agreement will run from October 2020 to the end of the 2022 World Cup, which will be hosted by Qatar from November to December, 2022.

Puma will be the federation’s official supplier of sports equipment for the men’s, women’s and youth teams.

Puma takes over the kit supplier role from rival German sports brand Adidas which has held the rights since 2007.

Puma previously held the rights from 1999 to 2007, covering the 1999 Copa America staged in Paraguay, and the 2002 and 2006 World Cups.

Under the agreement, Puma will also supply the balls for the tournaments organised by the APF.

Puma’s portfolio of national teams deals also includes Uruguay in Latin America; Egypt, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Ghana and Morocco in Africa; and Italy, Austria, Czech Republic, Iceland, Israel, Serbia and Switzerland in Europe.

In May, Puma ousted another sports brand rival, Errea, from its long-term position as kit supplier to the Iceland national football team.
