Puma signed Percy Tau, the South African professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Mamelodi Sundowns in the Premier Soccer League, to an endorsement deal.
The 22-year-old will be playing playing on Puma’s evoSpeed SL line of boots.
“I was attracted to the PUMA brand when they were awarded the sponsorship for Sundowns. I tried the evoSPEED boots and loved them, because they suit my game. Themba Zwane is another reason. He was always telling me how great PUMA is, so when they approached me I already knew a lot about them,” Tau said.
Puma’s marketing director, Brett Bellinger, said, “Percy Tau’s fearless yet cool playing style, as well as his hunger for success both on and off the field make him the perfect brand ambassador for us.”
