The English Football League The English Football League

June 2016

The English Football League was founded in 1888 making it the oldest such competition in world football - matching perfectly with the ball sponsor Mitre - the worlds oldest sporting brand. Mitre has supplied all 72 teams within the division for over a quarter of a century.

The current deal with the EFL sees the Mitre Delta Hyperseam ball used across all 3 divisions with the balls personalised for all clubs with their colours and emblem added to the ball. The Delta Hyperseam ball uses a unique 12 panel construction which keeps the ball stable at over 70mph whilst offering enhanced aerodynamics optimising the speed and accuracy of a shot. Our Hyperseam technology fuses both construction methods of hand stitching and then thermally bonding to give results of a ball that plays better, lasts longer and moves faster.

Throughout November of the 2015-2016 season the Delta Fluo Hyperseam ball was used to help raise awareness for the charity Movember by adding a mustache to the football which was used by all 72 teams on the first weekend in November.
