Global sportswear manufacturer Puma is involved in violations of international law and human rights.

Puma is the main sponsor of the Israel Football Association (IFA), which includes teams in Israel’s illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian land.

Israel’s military occupation expels Palestinian families, including children, from their homes to give way for these settlements. Israeli settlements are considered war crimes under international law.

More than 200 Palestinian sports clubs have called on Puma to end the sponsorship deal and stop supporting Israel’s illegal land grabs.

 

Puma markets itself as a company that cares about equality yet it funds the apartheid the IFA helps sustain.

In July 2018 it was announced that Adidas was no longer sponsoring the IFA following an international campaign and the delivery of over 16,000 signatures to Adidas headquarters.

We can do this again. Join Palestinian athletes calling for a boycott of Puma until it ends its support for Israel’s illegal land grabs.

Puma is a major sponsor of Melbourne City FC

We aim to raise awareness of Puma’s unethical sponsorship of the Israeli Football Association with Melbourne City fans and players.

We expect a consistent anti-racism from our A-League soccer clubs, and Puma sponsoring the apartheid of the IFA means it has to go if Melbourne City FC respects international law and equal human rights.
