Ruth Matta Announced as EP Elite Player for 2019

EP Sports have announced Birmingham Lions, GB Lions and Boston Renegades star playmaker Ruth Matta as one of their EP Elite players for 2019!

The announcement comes off the back of Matta and her teammates at the Lions securing their sixth-straight National Championship this past weekend, as well as the groundbreaking news that Matta will be playing for the four-time US women’s National Champions, the Boston Renegades, this summer.

Matta is one of the most explosive players in the British game, so it’s no surprise her talents have been sought abroad – she’ll face her toughest test yet competing in the Women’s Football Alliance, but she’ll do so with the support of the awesome team at EP Sports.

Ruth will be wearing Nike Untouchable Speed 3 Boots this season – a fitting choice for the diminutive speedster who’s shocked defences at the elite international level with her incredible turn of pace and ability to change direction on a pinhead!

Matta joins international ballers Bernhard Seikovits of the Vienna Vikings and Alex Ferrari of the Giants Bolzano as the three EP Elite Players announced so far in 2019.
