DEAL: Puma will take over as the league’s ball manufacturer for the 2019-2020 campaign.
LA Liga has signed a new ball deal with Puma, spelling the end of a 23-year partnership with Nike.
Puma will take over as the league’s ball manufacturer for the 2019-2020 campaign as part of a mega money three season agreement to produce all balls for the Spanish top flight.
This brings to a close one of the longest collaborations in European sport.
La Liga bosses have not confirmed the reasons behind the deal, or any financial details.
Puma also recently announced it will be producing the kits for La Liga side Valencia for the next three seasons after they ended their deal with Adidas.
