METUCHEN, NJ - United Women’s Soccer (UWS) and Mitre USA will team up for this Summer 2017 season, as the competition in the national pro-am league will feature the most advanced FIFA-approved quality match ball ever made: the Delta V12S. 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).
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 mph. Hand-stitched in soft-touch Calrino microfiber, it was developed and tested with professionals in mind. Extensive design, development and testing has gone into each Mitre professional level ball to make them the most technologically advanced balls you can buy.
“United Women’s Soccer is excited to partner with Mitre as the Official Ball of UWS,” said League Commissioner Joe Ferrara, Jr. “Mitre has an incredible history in the sport and it is one of the most trusted brands in soccer. 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. 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 US 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.”
