After a successful first season as the official match ball supplier, PUMA will once again produce the match ball for all EFL competitions, including the Sky Bet Championship, League One, League Two, Carabao Cup and Papa Johns Trophy.
The ball ‘incorporates the latest technology developed by PUMA, is made of 12 symmetrical panels forming the perfect sphere, with contours between panels enhanced to form deeper channels resulting in perfect ball flight aerodynamics.’
This season’s traditional white ball features the colours of the EFL logo. There is also a high-vis fluorescent yellow version produced for poor visibility conditions, and will be introduced on pitch in November.
