adidas to provide Bundesliga matchball until 2017/18

Frankfurt - The official matchball for all Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 fixtures will continue to be provided by adidas from the 2014/15 season until the end of the 2017/18 campaign.

The deal was agreed by the management of the DFL and the League Association Board after an open, transparent and discrimination-free tender process which had been running since May 2013 under the guidance of DFL Sports Enterprises.

Since the 2010/11 season adidas has held the rights to develop and provide the official matchballs and winter matchballs for the league, a deal which was first announced in 2009. The tender process ensures that there is a level playing-field relating to the provision of official match balls. This season, adidas’s “Torfabrik 4” ball is being used.
