PUMA is proud to present the latest addition to its growing team of football stars – Mamelodi Sundowns playmaker Percy Tau. The 22 year-old will wear the new PUMA evoSPEED SL boot, as worn by the likes of Sergio Aguero and George Lebese.
Tau, who has scored 8 goals with 9 assists to date this season, is going to be a key player for the Global Sports Brand having already made headlines by scoring at the 2016 FIFA Club World Cup.
PUMA strengthens its teamsport marketing activities with the new partnership. Tau is a new product ambassador for the evoSPEED SL boot and will be supplied with PUMA performance and lifestyle gear.
“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,” says Tau.
Brett Bellinger, PUMA Marketing Director, says: “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.”
