Puma will be the official provider of match day balls for the 2019/20 La Liga season.

"The ball is the most essential element in football and this sponsorship is the epitome of performance," said Johan Adamsson, PUMA's director of sports marketing.

Nike had been the official match ball since the 1996/97 season. 

"It is an honor for a historical sports brand like PUMA, that dresses great teams, important sportsmen and recognised artists, to want to associate with LaLiga, the best football national league in the world, and contribute all its technical quality to our ball, which is such an important element of our competition," added LaLiga's marketing and commercial director Juan Carlos Diaz.
