Gur Samuel, managing director of AFD, commented: “We are delighted to be able to announce our partnership with Baden Sports as our official ball supplier. Baden has a great sporting reputation across a number of sports. We will work to develop the sport of American Football and want to equip all our players with the best products and we feel Baden is best placed to help us deliver this objective.”
