Basketball England have announced a new 3-year deal with Spalding after their initial agreement came to an end.
As part of the deal, there will be a new Basketball England licensed ball for the 2015-16 season and beyond.
The TFL-100 will be used for all Senior NBL games across all divisions whilst also being used in the EABL and newly formed WEABL competitions.
Under-18 NBL games along with ABL will use the TFL-50 and all Under-16 junior competitions as well as schools will use the TFL-25.
“Basketball England is delighted to continue developing our relationship with Spalding,” said BE’s interim CEO, Mark Clark.
“Spalding are a key basketball brand, our relationship with them is another indication of the scope of our sport. The Basketball England licensed ball is a great product that gives identity and enhances our competitions.”
Paul Sherrat, UK & Ireland Spaliding Manager added: “To extend our relationship with Basketball England until 2018 will allow Spalding to establish some new and exciting initiatives with the Governing Body, as well as supporting a wider range of competitions, throughout English basketball.”
RJM Sports will be servicing the agreement and will operate as the official fulfilment partner between the NBL teams and Spalding.
