Puma Ocean Racing, which finished second overall in the 2008-09 Volvo Ocean Race, has confirmed its entry for the next edition of the event. Puma will also be the official supplier of footwear, clothing, and
accessories to the Volvo Ocean Race.

“We are proud of Puma Ocean Racing’s success in the last Volvo Ocean Race and look forward to the adventures this next race will bring,” said Jochen Zeitz, Puma AG Chairman and CEO.

“Both the team and the company hope to leverage the key lessons from the last Volvo Ocean Race campaign in order to continue spreading the good will of the programme and Puma worldwide. The Volvo Ocean Race is one of the world’s iconic sporting events. It proved to be an extremely successful marketing tool for us and an important launch pad for the sailing product category.

“We look forward to building the sailing category even more throughout the next race, as well as expanding into other forms of outdoor lifestyle ventures,” Zeitz concluded.
