Cameroon kit row resolved
Cameroon's controversial one-piece kit
Fifa and Puma have reached an out-of-court settlement over Cameroon's kit
Fifa has reached an out-of-court settlement with kit manufacturers Puma over Cameroon's one-piece strip.

The German company had been seeking damages after football's world governing body banned the strip which Cameroon used at the 2004 African Cup of Nations.

A Fifa statement released on Tuesday said it had settled with Puma "in the interests of international football."

Both sides agreed not to disclose the details of the settlement.

Fifa fined Cameroon in April 2004 for wearing the bodysuits during the Nations Cup in Tunisia, but a German judge later ruled this year that the uniform broke no Fifa rules.

Puma had been seeking US$2.4 million in damages from Fifa and wanted a ruling that it could market the uniform.

Fifa's rules state that players are to wear a jersey or shirt, and shorts and claimed that this meant separate garments, but Puma disagreed.

Puma alleged that Fifa's decision was influenced by rival Adidas, which works closely with Fifa.
