It is not confirmed which brand will supply the official Serie A soccer ball from the 22-23 season but it is rumored to be Puma.

Nike was the first league-wide Serie A ball makerIn 2019, Puma already replaced Nike as the official ball maker of Spanish La Liga in a €5 million deal.

Nike have been making the official Serie A match ball since the 2007-08 season.
