A new match ball will be kicked for the 2022-23 Season, as PUMA and LaLiga launched the Orbita on May 25 with a simultaneous event from six nations around the world: Spain, South Korea, Egypt, Mexico, South Africa and Thailand.
The Spanish event was held at the newly opened “LaLiga TwentyNine’s” restaurant on Madrid’s Gran Via, which had a different style for this occasion, which was hosted by Ruben Martin and Semra Hunter.
Among those who attended are Osasuna’s Juan Cruz and Rayo Vallecano’s Mario Hernandez. Also joined in the event was Valencia legend Miguel Angel Bossio as well as French basketball player Edwin Jackson, who plays for Madrid’s Estudiantes.
LaLiga’s Executive Director General Óscar Mayo and Puma’s Southern Europe General Manager Javier Ortega oversaw the unveiling of the major star of the 2022/23 season.
The greatest obsession
LaLiga’s new official match ball reflects the healthy obsession that football provokes in all football fans, its attractive and hypnotic design means that ‘when it’s not in the feet, it’s in the head’, and remains in the minds of players and fans alike.
Key LaLiga players such as FC Barcelona’s Memphis Depay, Valencia’s Yunus Musah and Atletico Madrid teammates Stefan Savic, Antoine Griezmann and Jan Oblak were prominent on its promotional photos.
With powerful visuals inspired by the hypnotic effect of a kaleidoscope, the design proposal for the new ball accelerates the game in a world infused with football culture.
All in the details of La Liga new ball
The design of the ball for the 2022/23 season features an attractive colour scheme with white as a base and striking shades such as fuchsia, blue, and yellow as a contrast, ensuring excellent visibility of the ball’s trajectory.
The PUMA ORBITA LaLiga offers a unique configuration of 12 large star-shaped panels which, by reducing the number of seams, allows for a better connection with the ball. It incorporates state-of-the-art technology to create the optimal sphericity, maintaining ball shape and allowing for less water absorption.
On the look out
With the excitement in the air, the continuing partnership of LaLiga and M88 Mansion is on another level.
So, football fans, stay tuned for more updates.
