Basketball Bundesliga extends Spalding partnership

The German Basketball Bundesliga has extended its partnership with its ball supplier, US sports equipment manufacturer Spalding.

The new two-year deal runs until the end of the 2018-19 season.

Spalding will serve as the official ball supplier of the top-tier club competition, and will also supply kit for referees.

Spalding will continue to be involved in the league’s All Star Day and Top Four events. As part of the agreement, Spalding has developed specially-branded balls for this season’s play-offs.
