The new SK Rapid Wien Puma kit deal will initially run for five years. The contract with Adidas will run out after this season. We expect the deal to be worth a seven-figure sum for the full contract length. Puma will supply gear for the senior teams as well as the club's youth teams.

SK Rapid's general manager Christoph Peschek: “The choice of supplier is an important decision for football clubs with such a clear identity and positioning as in the case of SK Rapid. After an extensive competition, with Puma and 11teamsports we have now found the best possible package from a strong and globally renowned sporting goods manufacturer and the largest online and team sports specialist in Europe. We look forward to at least five years of cooperation and innovative projects, great products for our fans and even more visibility throughout Austria ”.

With 11teamsports we will design all teams in the club successfully and professionally. It is our goal to help the club achieve further records with passion and expertise ”.
