United Women’s Soccer and Mitre USA will team up for the 2017 season, with matches featuring the soccer equipment company’s Delta V12S ball.
The top model in the Mitre soccer ball line is also the official match ball of the English Football League, AFF Suzuki Cup 2014 and the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL).
According to Mitre, The Delta V12S features a revolutionary 12-panel design and is combined with a textured grain surface that keeps the ball stable at over 70 miles per hour. Hand-stitched in soft-touch Calrino microfiber, it was developed and tested with professionals in mind.
“The Delta V12S is truly a state-of-the-art soccer ball and it is befitting of our teams, which play and train at the highest level,” said Joe Ferrara, Jr., UWS commissioner. “This ground-breaking partnership is a testament to Mitre’s dedication to the women’s game.”
“Mitre is excited to partner with UWS,” said Joe Brefczynski, Mitre USA national sales representative. “The women’s game in the U.S. is world-renowned and we’re ecstatic about partnering with a league giving young women the opportunity to pursue their dream of playing at the next level! Our vision is to find ourselves the ball of choice at every level in the American soccer pyramid. Adding UWS to our partners brings us one step closer to that goal.”
