Football NSW is proud to announce that British sportswear giant Mitre® will provide match balls for the NPL NSW Men’s and Women’s competitions, State League Men’s and the Girls Conference League competitions for the next three seasons.
Mitre® continues to have a long-standing affiliation with the world game in Australia and is currently the Official Ball Partner for the Westfield FFA Cup, Westfield W-League, National Premier Leagues, Football Federation Victoria and many other clubs throughout the country.
NPL clubs will have available the Delta Max and Delta balls for the 2018 season, providing players with a FIFA Quality ball that is engineered using the revolutionary Mitre® Hyperseam technology. This allows for rapid speed, ultimate control and increased durability. The bonded seams repel water for zero uptake, helping the ball to last in any weather, including throughout winter in Australia.
Currently, Delta Max is being used as part of the English Football League Championship and Carabao Cup (EFL Cup) in the UK, the Scottish Premier League and will be also used for the 2018 Westfield FFA Cup.
