A short time ago this morning, West Bromwich Albion confirmed our new ‘Technical Partner’ and official supplier of all playing and training gear would be Puma from next season.

From the start of the 2018/19 Championship campaign following our relegation, the multi-year deal with Puma will begin and fans should soon see the new strips and designs – as well as plenty of fan mock-ups – as the summer progresses and we edge nearer to August and the next big kick off.

Paul Spencer, PUMA UKIB general manager told wba.co.uk.

“Our design and product teams have created some great-looking kits and when they are revealed by the Club, I think the fans will be happy. We are looking forward to starting this new partnership and it will be great to see the team on the pitch in PUMA next season.”

Puma currently have deals with Arsenal, AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund and Olympique Marseilles as well as individual football deals with the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Sergio Aguero.

West Brom Chief Executive Mark Jenkins said of the new deal.

“It’s the start of a new partnership and I know everyone is looking forward to seeing the new kit range. I think our fans will approve. We’re delighted to be joining forces with such a well-respected and globally popular brand as PUMA.”

Whilst being generally pleased with the news, Baggies fans made a specific request on the back of the announcement – it’s time for the green and yellow away strip to return.

That mock-up below looks pretty nice actually!
