NEW UHLSPORT MATCH BALL UNVEILED FOR 2022/23

The NI Football League begins the 2022/23 season this week with a new-look uhlsport match ball that underscores the technology inside the ball itself.

Synergy G2 technology guarantees outstanding performance characteristics, whilst the particular bonding technique and special High Air Retention bladder ensure minimal loss of air pressure. The 22-panel construction makes for a perfectly round FIFA-QUALITY PRO certified match ball.

“The NI Football League relies on uhlsport Pro Synergy technology. The colour of the ball pays homage to the ‘90s and is a real eye-catcher with its pink accents,” explained Melanie Steinhilber, Director of Market Management and member of the Management Board at uhlsport.

Neil Coleman, NIFL Head of Marketing and Communications said: “We’re delighted to be launching this fresh, exciting new ball ahead of the new Northern Ireland Football League season this Friday evening. The vibrancy of the match ball is a reflection of how exciting our leagues are at this time, and we would like to thank our long-term partners uhlsport for their support in bringing this new ball to life.”

The new match ball will be used for the first time in the Danske Bank Premiership this Friday evening at Inver Park as Larne kick off the Irish League season against Glentoran live on BBC Sport NI (kick-off: 7.45pm).
