PUMA and the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex have entered into a multi-year agreement with PUMA becoming the official soccer equipment sponsor of Disney Soccer.
As part of the agreement, a co-branded soccer ball has been created by PUMA to be used for all youth matches at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex. Disney Soccer hosts tens of thousands of players from around the world each year, and has rapidly become the most popular sport at the ESPN Wide World of Sport complex.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with Disney Sports on this exciting venture,” said Jay Piccola, President of PUMA North America. “We are looking forward to teaming with one of the country’s leading organizations for world class youth soccer programming and bringing this combination to young soccer players and fans alike.”
“We’re excited to work with PUMA, which is known for its innovative approach and commitment to athletes who have a passion for soccer,” said Tom Wolber, senior vice president of Disney Sports Enterprises. “The addition of PUMA’s soccer equipment will complement the Disney Soccer experience for the athletes who play on our fields.”
