Global Sports brand PUMA have confirmed a new partnership to become the official match ball supplier of the EFL.
The long-term agreement with the EFL will commence from the start of the 2021/22 season and will see PUMA produce the official match ball for all EFL competitions, including the Sky Bet Championship, League One, League Two, Carabao Cup and Papa John’s Trophy.
The ball, which incorporates the latest technology developed by PUMA, is designed to complement the variety of styles on show across the EFL, with the traditional white football featuring the colours of the EFL logo alongside custom acceleration graphics to showcase the explosive speed of the ball when moving. For poor visibility conditions, a high-vis fluorescent yellow version has been produced. There are also specially designed balls in competition colours for the Carabao Cup and Papa John’s Trophy.
