PUMA and Daily Paper Have Built a New Football Pitch for Young Players in Ghana

Securing the future of African football.

September 28th 2017

Amsterdam’s Daily Paper and PUMA are working together to secure the future of African football.

The two brands recently dropped a collaborative autumn/winter collection paying homage to PUMA’s national team kits, team gear and classics sneaker silhouettes, with an infusion of contemporary streetwear style courtesy of Daily Paper.

Alongside the collection, PUMA and Daily Paper have donated funds towards the development of football in Ghana in cooperation with Right to Play. A brand new football pitch was developed at the Accra Senior Girls School in Ghana in what was once a dumping ground. The new pitch will not only serve the school but other communities in Accra, supporting the development of the sport amongst young footballers and empowering them for the future.

A PUMA partner of Ghana Football Association since 2005, Ghana is also the motherland of one of the Daily Paper founders.
