Some big transfers going on in the world at the moment, but here’s news of a different sort of signing: PUMA have announced that Christian Pulisic has joined their ranks, signing a long-term deal with the brand.

PUMA’s moves in the game have been huge lately, with the headline of their recent recruitment drive coming in the form of PSG’s superstar striker, Neymar. But now they’ve followed up that signing with another impressive coup, in the form of USMNT captain, Christian Pulisic. Partnering with the U.S. captain is a huge move from the big cat and will see PUMA commit to supporting Christian in growing soccer participation in America and inspiring the next generation.

Pulisic topped off his season – in which he became the first American born winner of the UEFA Champions League by scoring the winning goal and captaining the USMNT to the CONCACAF Nations League title with victory over Mexico in the final, which signified a breakout tournament for the young U.S. side. As he continues to build his legacy on and off the pitch, Pulisic will join PUMA’s Faster Football movement and will be one of the faces of the PUMA ULTRA. 

Christian’s journey has been incredible and has really paved the way for so many young American players who dream of playing in Europe for the world’s biggest clubs,” said Johan Adamsson, Global Director of Sports Marketing and Sports Licensing at PUMA. “Christian is technically gifted, has lightning speed and quickness of thought to change any game. Not only have we signed an amazing talent, but a fantastic person off the pitch who wants to continue to grow soccer in America, a goal PUMA has committed to support.

Anyone who loves soccer, should be able to play,” said Pulisic. “We have a platform in sports and if something is truly meaningful, you can really help to open people’s eyes and make changes. What I love about PUMA is they share my passion and my goal to support youth soccer in America and to help the next generation to chase their dreams.”

In many ways it was a no-brainer for me to join PUMA," the American went on. "With its world class and innovative products, PUMA embodies the culture of sports on and off the pitch. Their technical innovations revolve around speed, which is one of my biggest weapons. It’s an honor to follow in the PUMA footsteps of some of the greatest players to have ever played the game, Pele, Maradona, and Johan Cruyff.”
