The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) has confirmed German sportswear company Puma as the national teams new kit supplier.
Puma will take over from Adidas who's contract with the Pharaohs expired last year. Puma will be supplying football kits to all national teams at both senior and youth levels.
“Egypt has an amazing track record and we are very excited to once again supply them with our products,” Puma’s director of sports, Johan Adamsson, said in a statement.
“We hope that Puma and the Pharaohs can continue where they left off, by taking the title in the next Africa Cup of Nations in 2019,”
Egypt boast a rich history of success donning the Puma brand, especially on the African continent, having won the Africa Cup of Nations on three successive occasions (2006, 2008, 2010) while donning the Puma logo on their chest.
The North African nation will host the 2019 AFCON in June after Cameroon were stripped of the hosting rights.
