Today Olympique De Marsielle have announced a long term partnership with Puma which will take effect on July 1st of 2017. Both team and brand have made recent strides in growth as OM have made big name signings and Puma continue to bolster their ever growing roster of renowned teams/players.  The collaboration makes sense as both parties stand poised to grow together and clearly meet eye-to-eye as echoed by their respective head honchos:
