Kai Havertz, the prodigious talent from Germany, recently signed a partnership with PUMA Football, marking a new era for both the athlete and the brand. PUMA has been looking for individuals who not only excel at their sport, but also possess a persona of humility and generosity, and they’ve found just that in Havertz. This combination promises to bring innovation and excellence in football equipment, especially as Havertz becomes a key figure in promoting the FUTURE Silo line.
Kai Havertz brings both experience and a fresh perspective to the PUMA family with an impressive career record of over 200 professional games and more than 39 international appearances. His journey began with Bayer Leverkusen, where he quickly made a name for himself and caught the attention of major clubs across Europe. His skill and tenacity on the pitch led him to Chelsea in 2020, where he made a significant impact, scoring the decisive goal in the 2020/21 Champions League final at the age of 21. Now, in 2023, he’s taken his talents to Arsenal, a club with a rich history and a promising future.
Kai couldn’t hide his excitement when talking about joining forces with PUMA: “Growing up in Germany, PUMA has always been an iconic brand worn by some of the sport’s greatest players. Their innovative approach to football boots and commitment to athletes is something I’ve always admired. Meeting the team and hearing their plans for the future convinced me that this was where I belonged. The family atmosphere they have here is real.”
He added, “The FUTURE boot feels like it’s made for my style of play and I was eager to make the switch. PUMA’s excellence isn’t limited to the pitch; they are making significant strides in other sports and fashion areas as well. We have some exciting projects in the pipeline and I’m excited to see what we can achieve together.”
Johan Adamsson, PUMA’s Global Director of Sports Marketing and Sports Licensing, shared Kai’s enthusiasm: “It is a pleasure to welcome Kai to the PUMA family. He’s a phenomenal athlete with a bright future ahead of him. His accomplishments speak for themselves, but it’s his positive attitude and high expectations that set him apart. He’s poised to be a central figure in both his club and national team for a long time to come. We’re looking forward to kicking off this partnership and working together on some exciting initiatives.”
Kai’s journey from Leverkusen to Arsenal, coupled with his humility and creativity on the pitch, make him the perfect ambassador for PUMA’s vision of the future of football.
