The Ghana Football Association has signed a contract extension of the existing kit sponsorship deal with Puma to 2014.

Kwesi Nyantakyi, President of the FA, and Jochen Zeitz, CEO of the kit suppliers who initialed for Puma, announced the new deal in Accra on Monday.

The announcement of the new package came a day after the Black Stars had unveiled the new Puma v1.08 designed jersey at the African Cup of Nations.

Under the new agreement, the German kit manufacturers will become the official supplier of equipment to all the national sides under the Ghana Football Association team structure.

As part of the new package, Puma have agreed to construct training a field for the Football Association.

'We are proud to be partners with such a global brand that has made a commitment to football in both Ghana and the African continent on the whole,' said Kwesi Nyantakyi at Monday’s signing ceremony in Accra.

'Puma has consistently delivered on its promise of support - and this is further evidence of Puma’s confidence and commitment in their relationship with the Black Stars and Ghana Football.'

Jochen Zeitz said: 'Ghana was one of the most inspiring stories of the 2006 World Cup, capturing the world’s attention with their exciting style of play and passion for the game,'

'Puma is proud to extend our partnership with them for many years to come and we wish The Black Stars the best of luck during the next three weeks in the African Cup on their home soil.'

Ghana’s kit sponsor, Puma, last week donated a 53-seater Mercedes-Benz Tourisimo bus to the Black Stars.

Puma entered into a sponsorship deal with the Ghana Football Association in 2005 and have remained proud of the African side since the agreement was signed in Accra.
