The deal runs alongside our partnership with the JD Welsh Premier League and with this renewal we look forward to further strengthening our brand, the WPWL and women’s football.’’

Lucy Kelly, WPWL Secretary, said: “We are very pleased to extend our partnership with Mitre. The WPWL used Mitre for the first time last season, and feedback we have received from our clubs has been positive. This is an exciting time for the growth of women’s football in Wales, and the WPWL will only benefit further from this extended partnership.

The Element football which will be used throughout the WPWL next season features revolutionary Hyperseam™ technology – engineered to deliver optimum energy dissipation and a super accurate flight.
