(ANSA) – ROME, JUL 08 – The official ball of the BKT 2022/2023 Series has the blue of Italy and a design that wants to represent our country, as part of a set of states that fit together perfectly, united from the passion for the most beautiful game in the world. It is a recognition of the internationalization desired by League B, present and visible in about 40 countries around the world. The Kombat ™ Ball 2023, designed again this year by Kappa ©, represents the partnership renewed for the sixth consecutive year, demonstrating a consolidated relationship.
An internationalization that has been the hallmark of LNPB’s policy in recent months, without affecting the main mission of the tournament: the growth of young Italians as demonstrated by the high number of B players in the Under 21 (11 in the last call).
“The ball is historically the actor who treads the sporting stage first of all. It is the emblem of the union between clubs, generations of fans and football passion – the words of the president of the Lega di B, Mauro Balata – I am sure that we will see them roll in the houses and squares all over Italy because, never like this year, the BKT Series will represent the Italian Championship ‘.
The new official ball of the 2022-23 season re-proposes the avant-garde design of the 24 panels. Pressure is evenly distributed around the ball and between the panels, allowing players to make more powerful and precise shots. With a design inspired by golf balls, the outer surface is full of micro grooves that increase the aerodynamics of the ball.
