Inspired by classicfootballs: DERBYSTAR presents the official match ball of the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 for the 2023/24 season.
DERBYSTAR BY SELECT
On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Bundesliga, the sports goods manufacturer from Germany was inspired by the look of classic footballs balls from the beginning of the Bundesliga when creating the design and reinterpreted it for the new official match ball.
While in the past the 12 pentagons were monotonously black, DERBYSTAR has upgraded them with dynamic design elements and eye-catching colors to create an innovative look for the new official match ball.
First Official Bundesliga match ball partly produced of recycled material
An innovation is hidden in the material of the new ball: For the first time, recycled material is used in the production of an official match ball of the Bundesliga. In total, around 10% of the new Official Bundesliga Match Ball is made from recycled polyester by weight.
