Kitsap Pumas kits…and some info

Kitsap-Pumas-Kits.jpg

Ben Pecora from the Kitsap Soccer Club sent this over. It’s the crest and kits for the PDL (Premier Development League) Kitsap Pumas. It’s a new team in its inaugural season. Home games are played from May to August at Bremerton Memorial Stadium. I thought the crest, which was designed by a fan, looked really neat, reminded me of UNAM Pumas of Mexico.

The club made some announcements today, including the signing of its first player, Stephen Mohn. Here’s part of a press release from Ben:

Mohn is a former University of Washington standout and played last year with the Tacoma Tide of the United Soccer League’s Premier Development League.

“Stephen is a player we identified at our first meeting,” said head coach John Wedge. “He possesses all the things we aspire to in this team – tenacity, skill, speed and a keen attacking sense – plus, he’s a leader.”

“This is an honor,” said Mohn, “to be known as the first Puma ever. I’m glad to be here.”

Jersey and Puma Agreement Unveiled: The club also introduced a three-year agreement with German multi-national apparel and equipment supplier Puma.

Following this news, club owner Robin Waite unveiled the team’s official home jersey – a classic “hooped” blue and white beauty adorned with the team’s official crest.

“All of us at Puma are excited about what Robin and the Pumas have already accomplished and are planning for the immediate and long-term,” said West Coast director of sales Jeff Enquist. “There are very few clubs in North America with this sort of vision, experience and ability – we foresee a great partnership.”

The agreement with Puma followed intensive negotiations with every major soccer-specific apparel and equipment supplier in the industry.
