Across the world, fans of fair play and sports for everyone are joining the call from Palestinian teams and athletes to boycott sportswear manufacturer Puma.
Puma is the main sponsor of the Israel Football Association (IFA), which proudly includes and advocates on behalf of teams in Israeli settlements pushing Palestinian families off their land. Israeli settlements are illegal and constitute a war crime under international law.
Last June, groups in more than 20 countries joined the first Global #BoycottPuma Day of Action. On social media, #BoycottPuma was THE most tweeted Puma-related hashtag that day.
We’re back for round two.

Puma is feeling the pressure. To sideline criticism, Puma is resorting to ridiculous claims, including a “devotion to universal equality.”
A “devotion to universal equality” must mean not sporting with apartheid! It requires Puma to end its:
– complicity in whitewashing Israel’s illegal land grabs that rob Palestinians of territory and natural resources.
– support for Israel’s occupation infrastructure that denies Palestinian athletes their rights to freedom of movement and to practice sports.
– sponsorship of the Israel Football Association.
Puma’s iconic leaping cat is profiting from Israel’s ever-expanding illegal settlement enterprise and its denial of basic Palestinian human rights.
Join us as we step up pressure on Puma to live up to its claim of promoting social justice.
