PUMA Announce the Signing of Italian Striker Mario Balotelli
Today, December 23, PUMA has announced a long-term deal with Mario Balotelli – AC Milan’s controversial and currently in-form striker. Often grabbing the headlines – on occasion for the wrong reason - Balotelli’s new boot, the evoPOWER Stampa, features an aesthetic that makes witty references to Super Mario’s most notable media stunts. The sports apparel giant has hailed this partnership as a key signing for the brand and has pushed Balotelli straight into the limelight with its new mission of “Forever Faster.” The 23-year-old’s incorporation of speed, quickness, agility and power in his game seemingly complements the core values of the German multinational, and certainly plays a significant role in embracing the passion and temperament of #45. Balotelli joins former teammate Sergio Agüero of Man City, Barcelona’s Cesc Fàbregas and AS Monaco’s Radamel Falcao on a star-studded cast of global football icons. Considering the Italian’s natural ability to remain in the headlines, be sure to tune in for more from Mario Balotelli and PUMA.
