Barcelona Midfielder Launches New PUMA Powercat 1.12 Football Boot
PUMA today announced the signing off a long term partnership with Spanish international midfielder Cesc Fabregas, the Barcelona midfielder signing a multi-year contract with PUMA. Cesc will wear PUMA boots on pitch and will become another key performance icon in the sportlifestyle brand’s global football communication. Having unveiled, Sergio ‘Kun’ Aguero, PUMA is delighted to welcome Fabregas into a football family that also includes Thierry Henry, Nemanja Vidic, Samuel Eto’o, Mario Gomez, Gianluigi Buffon, Giorgio Chiellini, Ibrahim Afellay, Lucas Barrios, Mikel Arteta and many more footballing stars.
Fabregas will lead the global launch of the new PUMA PowerCat 1.12, debuting the boot for the first time on-pitch this weekend when FC Barcelona play Sporting Gijon in La Liga. This new boot features the new PUMA 3D DUO Power Shooting Technology, applied to the kicking area on the inside of the boot.

This has been a fantastic summer for me, signing for Barcelona and now for PUMA. This brand has a great attitude and has some very exciting plans ahead which make me feel privileged and excited to be an ambassador for many years to come.”
