Golf Canada and Puma Golf have announced an expansion of their partnership, making Puma the official apparel and headwear partner of Golf Canada’s national team program.
As part of the three-year agreement, Team Canada players, coaches, and supervisors of the National Amateur and Junior Squads will exclusively wear Pumas golf apparel and headgear when representing Team Canada. In addition, athletes and coaches appointed to Team Canada for the 2024 Olympic golf competition in Paris will wear Puma Golf apparel and headgear as part of the pitch uniform.
“Puma Golf has grown to be an incredibly strong and integrated supporter of a number of Golf Canada programs and properties, and we are very proud to expand this partnership to include high-performance and our national team programs,” said John Sibley, Chief Commercial Golf Canada Officer. “This is a very exciting time in Canadian high-performance golf and we are excited to equip Team Canada athletes, coaches and supervisors with Puma’s extensive collection of advanced performance apparel and headgear.”
The expansion of Puma Canada’s support into the Golf Canada National Team Program represents a deeper, stronger, and more integrated partnership with the National Sport Federation that goes back many years. In 2014, Cobra Puma Golf became the official headgear, apparel, footwear and equipment partner for Golf Canada’s Junior Skills Challenge, an interactive program that focuses on developing key golf skills such as putting, chipping and driving among teenagers.
“We are excited to support all of the talented athletes and employees in the Team Canada High Performance Program and to strengthen our partnership with Golf Canada,” said Dwayne Boecker, Head of Golf at Cobra Puma Golf – Canada. “This opportunity to connect with the next generation of great players in this country will add to our brand appeal and presence in golf. The iconic Puma Cat has a rich history in international competition and we look forward to seeing Canada’s best amateur golfers continue this success in our equipment. “
