Mitre become official football match ball supplier to the Russia Professional Football League
Mitre is delighted to announce it has become the Official Match Ball Supplier to the Russia Professional Football League (PFL) for the 2014/15 season. From July 2014, all 72 clubs within the Russia Professional Football League will be playing with PFL badged versions of the Delta V12.
Mitre will have branded perimeter boards at all 72 clubs within the PFL and we will also benefit from significant television and media exposure throughout the season. This partnership positions Mitre on the field of professional play and will promote the brand through-out the Russian market.
Astra Sport, Mitre’s Russian partner, have worked tirelessly to secure this partnership. The success of the brand is largely due to the Mitre sponsorship of the Russia Cup, similar to the FA Cup, which has led to the ULTIMAX ball achieving legendary status in market.
The sponsorship of Andrey Bukhlitsky, the goalkeeper of the Russia beach soccer team has also been key, given Russia are world number one at beach soccer. Sponsoring the PFL sponsorship adds reach across the vast country and another fantastic platform to build the Mitre brand on.
