UEFA has today launched an “Invitation to Tender” (ITT) process for the supplier rights for the official match ball category in relation to the qualification matches for UEFA EURO 2016 and European qualification matches for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Interested parties will have to submit their bids by Tuesday 18 December 2012 at 17:00CET.
Until Thursday 22 November 2012, qualified parties (international ball manufacturing companies) may register their interest in receiving the ITT documents by emailing: ITTofficialmatchball@CAA11.com
After certain formalities, qualified parties will then be provided with the tender documents on Friday 23 November 2012, the official launch date of the tender process.
Included in the set of rights is the unique opportunity to design, produce and market the official match ball for the European qualifiers. The successful party will thereby have the opportunity to develop a long-term partnership with UEFA and contribute to the promotion of national team football.
The tender process will be administered by CAA Eleven on behalf of UEFA.
