The LFP and uhlsport have unveiled the 2021 version of the Elysia, the official Ligue 1 Uber Eats ball.
The new design will be on show for the first time when Paris Saint-Germain take on Olympique de Marseille in the Trophée des Champions at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis on Wednesday 13 January.
For the second half of the season, the official Ligue 1 Uber Eats match ball will have new colours: navy blue, neon red and grey, synonymous with modernity, excellence and elegance!
The Elysia ball epitomises the essence of uhlsport's technological know-how. Its exclusive and innovative design has been specially developed for Ligue 1 Uber Eats. Its name is a double reference to the Elyos fields of mythology "reserved for virtuous men and heroes" and also a place of celebration of French victories.
uhlsport has developed a complete range of Elysia footballs for club and leisure practice, available in all good sports shops.
A long-standing partner of the Ligue de Football Professionnel, uhlsport is the official football supplier for Ligue 1 Uber Eats and Ligue 2 BKT for five seasons, from 2017-2018 until 2021-2022.
