Nike and the Premier League have unveiled an exclusive new match ball set to take the world’s most exciting football club competition to a new level in Season 2019/20, coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the partnership between Nike and the Premier League.
Inspired by the urban landscapes of England’s cities, the new ball will light up matches with its vivid graphics, while giving players an extra edge thanks to Nike’s latest innovations.
The 2019/20 ball is the first bespoke Nike Merlin produced solely for the Premier League and is the culmination of a creative process driven by English football’s pulsating tempo and unique fan culture.
“We wanted to design a ball that specifically illustrated the traits of Premier League football,” said Kieran Ronan, GM, Global Equipment. “A ball that felt hyper-technical and precise in nature but also inspired by this English culture of living and breathing Premier League football.”
