Coinciding with the reveal of the English Football League’s fixtures for the 23/24 season, PUMA launch the Orbita 1 EFL match ball, and you can expect to see it hitting the back of the net from Friday, 4 August, as Sheffield Wednesday host Southampton.

Last year, an impressive 4,083 goals were scored across the three divisions of the EFL and with the 2023/24 fixtures announced today, excitement is already building for what is expected to be another enthralling campaign, delivering more memorable moments for clubs, players and fans. And alongside that announcement, PUMA has launched the official match ball for the English Football League, building on two successful seasons as the match ball supplier, ready for what will hopefully be a cracking third.

The new PUMA Orbita design includes an 8-panel ball configuration, a reduction from last season's 12-panel design. These larger panels provide a better connection with the ball, enhancing players' touch and control.

Continuing the tradition, the ball will be primarily white, with the colours of the EFL logo. A special high-visibility fluorescent yellow variant has been crafted for low-visibility conditions and is set to be introduced in November. Specially designed balls will be used in competition colours for the Carabao Cup and EFL Trophy.
