The Ghana squad will wear Puma kit until 2012
The sponsorship agreement between the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and sports goods manufacturer Puma has been extended until 2012.

The deal is estimated to be worth as much as $25 million (12.7 million).

The German company will give the GFA an annual retainer, sales royalties and performance bonuses, as well as sports footwear and clothing.

Puma will also supply all national team kits and construct a new training pitch for the GFA in Accra.

Ghana's current deal with the German company had been due to expire in January 2009.

Puma opted to extend the contract because of the Black Stars' impressive showing at the 2006 World Cup finals.

"This commitment is convincing proof of the recent progress we have made and this will enhance football in Ghana," said GFA boss Kwasi Nyantakyi.

Puma has deals with nine of the 16 teams at the Nations Cup.

Egypt, Angola, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Morocco, Senegal, Tunisia and Namibia all wear Puma kit.
