All-New Nike Merlin 2018-19 Premier League, La Liga and Serie A Balls Leaked

Nike will release an all-new ball for the 2018-2019 season and beyond, the Nike Merlin. The Nike Merlin replaces the Nike Ordem football, set to be used for all major leagues and tournaments sponsored by the Swoosh such as the La Liga, Premier League and Serie A.



The name of Nike's 2018-19 football directly arises from the classic Nike Geo Merlin football, the official match ball of the English Premier League seasons between 2000-2004. It was the first-ever Premier League ball made by Nike.

This is the launch (standard) edition of the Nike Merlin 2018-2019 football.



The Nike Merlin football has a brand-new 4-panel configuration to reduce seams while opening up a wider striking surface - previous Nike footballs had a 12-panel construction. It is Nike's first-ever ball to feature Nike ACC (All Conditions Control) technology. Check out all you need to know about the Nike Merlin football.



Nike's new Premier League football for the 2018-2019 season is mainly white with dark blue / silver applications and light blue / yellow graphic elements. The Nike Merlin 2018-2019 La Liga football combines the main color white with wine-purple, yellow and pink applications and graphic elements.



The Serie A 2018-2019 ball is white with blue, red and yellow design elements. Just as all other balls, the Nike 2018-2019 Serie A football is also based on the design of the Nike Merlin, with the only difference the colors and the league logo.
