Puma set to become official manufacturer of Portugal's football kits

Puma replace Nike as Portugal’s official jersey sponsor

Portugal‘s new kit manufacturer will now be Puma rather than Nike as they end their long-term partnership with the brand, according to reports. The deal will come into effect in 2025.

Portugal’s national team will get a new sponsor for their upcoming matches. Nike has been one of the squad’s longest-running shirt sponsors (since 1997).

Portugal will resume international competition for the Euro 2024 qualifying matches after being knocked out of the 2022 World Cup by Morocco.

Roberto Martinez, a former manager of Belgium, took over as the new head coach of the A Selecao after Fernando Santos left the team.

On June 18 against Bosnia, they will play their following Euro qualifier, followed by a match on June 21 against Iceland.

As his playing days are drawing to a close, Cristiano Ronaldo, who guided the Selecao to the 2016 Euro Cup, will be attempting to steer them to another European trophy.

And despite being 38, the former Sporting CP attacker is still the leading scorer in men’s international competitions.

Although it is still unknown if he would compete in the 2026 World Cup because he will be 40 years old by then.

And how supporters will be lined up to purchase Portugal’s new jersey with its new sponsor, Puma. Despite Ronaldo being one of the Nike brand’s ambassadors, he will be donning a Puma jersey.
