With the drop of its latest Fandom Collection, PUMA celebrates the vibrant fan culture of Accra, Ghana and showcases what football means to a new generation of fans everywhere.
To truly honor the inspiration for this collection – the fans themselves – PUMA accompanied Ghanaian football star Mohammed Kudus to his hometown of Accra, Ghana to shoot the Fandom campaign on location.
The resulting imagery features real fans and players against the colorful backdrop of their city and captures the unbridled energy that explodes when passionate individuals are united by sport.
The Fandom Collection is as bold and bright as the new generation of football fans it pays tribute to. On the apparel side, tees in vibrant, off-beat colors feature all-over prints that catch the eye. Sweat and track suits range from essential black and grey styles to the edgier contrasting color blocks. But the signature detail that embodies the larger-than-life spirit of this collection is the oversized PUMA logo leaping off every item.
The footwear collection brings in the same fresh greens, pinks, and lavenders as the apparel, offering a fun new take on timeless silhouettes such as the Suede, CA Pro, Rider FV, and TRC Blaze. Overall, from its strategic pops of color to its splashy graphics, the Fandom collection has something for everyone, from adults to kids. Combining classic PUMA design with the flair and technology of today, these statement pieces are sure to become closet staples.
The Fandom Collection aims to capture that spark of authenticity and give a sartorial voice to the spirit of interaction and celebration that brings fans together around the world.
Puma is a German multinational corporation that designs and manufactures athletic and casual footwear, apparel and accessories, which is headquartered in Herzogenaurach, Bavaria, Germany. Puma is the third largest sportswear manufacturer in the world. The company was founded in 1948 by Rudolf Dassler (1898–1974). In 1924, Rudolf and his brother Adolf “Adi” Dassler had jointly formed the company Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik . The relationship between the two brothers deteriorated until the two agreed to split in 1948, forming two separate entities, Adidas and Puma.
Following the split from his brother, Rudolf originally registered the newly established company as Ruda (derived from Rudolf Dassler, as Adidas was based on Adi Dassler), but later changed the name to Puma.Puma’s earliest logo consisted of a square and beast jumping through a D, which was registered, along with the company’s name, in 1948. Puma’s shoe and clothing designs feature the Puma logo and the distinctive “Formstrip” which was introduced in 1958.
