Milan have announced a “long-term extension” to their partnership with sports brand Puma on Wednesday.
Puma have been the Rossoneri’s kit manufacturers since 2018 and, as well as, extension the club launched the “Puma House of Football” – a training centre to help future generations at the club.
Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis said: “We are immensely proud to continue on this journey with our long-standing partner Puma, our principal partner since 2018.
“Over the years, working side by side with Puma has allowed us to build a solid and authentic partnership based on performance, football culture and shared values, always with a progressive attitude.
“We are excited to start this new chapter in our relationship, which will focus strongly on the development of women’s football and the next generation of talent, both of which are perfectly aligned with our vision for the club.”
Prior to their partnership with Puma, Milan had used Adidas as their kit maker from 1998 to 2018.
Though Milan won the Champions League twice and Serie A on three occasions during their 20-year partnership with Adidas, their fortunes somewhat worsened towards the end of their deal.
Since partnering with Puma, the Rossoneri have returned to the Champions League for the first time in six years and won their first Scudetto in over a decade.
Prior to the 20-year deal with Adidas, Milan’s shirts were made by Italian sports manufactures Lotto from 1993 to 1998.
Adidas had also made the club’s kits from 1990 to 1993.
