Nike has extended its partnership with the Spanish football league, called La Liga, supplying its Ordem 4 ball for the first-division matches played among its 20 teams during the national championships. The deal began with the 1996-97 season and will not continue until at least 2019. La Liga says the partnership will help it to expand internationally. Meanwhile, a Spanish company, Kelme, announced the extension of its own contract to supply the match ball for Spain's National Futsal League (LNFS) for the next five playing seasons.
