Mitre Delta Returns

June 1st 2017

THE LEGEND RETURNS

 

Mitre, match ball of choice for the Scottish Professional Football League, is ready to make history again with the return of its iconic Delta trademark. Redesigned, reinvented and rejuvenated, the Delta is back as Mitre’s new official match ball for the EFL, SPFL and WPL, engineered for optimal control, accuracy and power.

 

Instantly recognisable thanks to its heritage, the Delta holds a unique place at the heart of British football and over the years has been treasured by players and fans alike. Last seen on Scottish football pitches in 2001, its return means that a new generation of players can now have their first football experiences with a brand new ball with the same legendary trademark. This season the Delta returns – resigned, reinvented and rejuvenated – wearing the classic fluo and silver colourway which makes the SPFL ball unique.

 

This, the most advanced football from Mitre, features brand new technology including a textured surface for instinctive aerodynamic control. The added embossed grooves provide up to 400% more stability at speeds of 30 – 45 mph as well as greater accuracy vs a flat panel construction of the same ball¹.

 

A distinctive 14 panel design with innovative Hyperseam™ technology ensures optimum energy dissipation and a super accurate flight. Combining the benefits of bonded and stitched seams guarantees superb speed and pin-point accuracy with a consistent feel, almost zero water uptake² and superior durability. A laminated bladder combined with a rubber sheet constructed in between two layers of foam backing give explosive power coupled with improved control.

 

Mark Upshall, Head of Category at Mitre Sports International, says; “We’re really proud of the Delta trademark and its iconic heritage so can’t wait to bring it back. Our new Delta ball has been updated with brand new technology to make it our most innovative football yet. We hope its return will inspire new moments of football brilliance among future generations – the same way it has with players in the past”.

 

The Delta (RRP £115), Delta Replica (RRP £12) and Delta Replica Mini (RRP £7) will be available for purchase from 1st June exclusively through Mitre.com. From 15th June onwards, the range will be widely available at all key retailers.
