Adhesive for sticker onto leather

Bought an "AIBA Approved" headgear for competition use.
The manufacturer used to sew the "Approved" tag onto the headgear so it wouldn't come off and any official could approve it.
This sticker looks like it's coming off with just one training session.
Sewing it on would look bad and could have the appearance of a doctoring job.
I don't want to have a guy show up and they don't allow the headgear if the stickers coming/came off.
Is there any military-grade adhesive that will stick the sticker onto the leather permanently enough to withstand blows to the headgear?

I don't know about military grade but I'd use a contact cement.

I use the Weldwood contact cement for many things. It should perform well for you.
It's available at any home improvement store or hardware. Use the original formula.... not the low VOC replacement.
