Mitre announces renewal of Scottish Professional Football League partnership with the launch of a new match ball.
The Delta Hyperseam, Mitre’s most technologically advanced football, has today been announced as the Scottish Professional Football League’s Official Match Ball for the 2015/16 season.
The new ball marks a renewed partnership deal that will see Mitre Sports International continue as Official Ball Partner of all SPFL leagues – the Ladbrokes Premiership, Ladbrokes Championship, Ladbrokes League 1 and Ladbrokes League 2 – for a further four years.
Mitre has been the Official Ball Partner of Scottish league football, supplying the latest technology to all 42 teams, since 1998. The teams have kicked off the new season with the Delta Hyperseam Fluo, a new innovation from the British football brand, which combines the benefits of both stitched and bonded balls.
Neil Doncaster, SPFL chief executive, said: “It’s fantastic news that the SPFL has extended its relationship with Mitre and the new Delta Hyperseam ball is sure to add even more colour to the Scottish football season.
“This is an improved deal for the SPFL and its member clubs which is more welcome news as the new season gets up and running and all supporters are looking forward to their team finding the back of the net with the new ball.”
