Nike 16-17 La Liga Ball Revealed + New Ball Deal Announced

The new Nike 2016-2017 La Liga Football introduces a spectacular design for the best league in the world, officially released today together with the announcement that the Swoosh and La Liga extended their partnership until at least 2019. The new La Liga 2016 Ball features the LFP logo instead of the Liga BBVA logo after the Spanish bank announced that they will not remain main sponsor for the Spanish 1st and 2nd divisions.

"We are delighted to extend this partnership, which began in the 1996–97 season. Nike is the leading brand in football and is continually innovating through the relationships we hold with the world’s best players, clubs, federations and leagues," states Lorenzo Moretti, Vice President and General Manager of Nike Football in Western Europe.

"We consider La Liga to be the strongest league in the world, with the best clubs and players and it is important that we have an iconic ball," adds Adolfo Bara, La Liga Commercial Director.
