Global Sports brand PUMA is delighted to announce a new partnership with the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) and the Scottish Women’s Premier League (SWPL) as the official match-ball provider from season 2023/24. The new partnership is a multi-year deal and will commence at the start of the 2023/2024 season.

As well as being a landmark new deal for the SPFL, this marks an exciting milestone for the SWPL as it welcomes its first-ever bespoke match-ball, exclusively designed to be used throughout the hotly-anticipated 2023/24 season.

The Orbita ball, incorporating the latest technology developed by PUMA, features unique colourways inspired by the SPFL and SWPL logos. Crafted with 12 symmetrical panels and contours between panels fine-tuned to form deeper channels, the Orbita promises excellent aerodynamic performance on the pitch.

The SPFL and SWPL join a prestigious list of leagues alongside La Liga, Serie A and EFL, in which PUMA are the official match-ball provider. The SWPL will be PUMA’s first ever bespoke ball used in a women’s football league.

PUMA will be the official SPFL match-ball provider from the start of the 2023/24 Viaplay Cup, with Orbita balls being used in the group stage this Summer. Football fans can then look forward to seeing the new bespoke SPFL match-ball in action across all four divisions from the start of the new cinch SPFL league season from 5th August.

The bespoke SWPL match-ball will officially debut at the start of the SWPL and SWPL 2 seasons, which commence on 13th August. The new match ball will also be used across the Sky Sports Cup competition, which commences on 3rd September.
