This image shows the Nike Merlin 2018-2019 La Liga winter ball.

Once again the Nike La Liga winter ball introduces an absolutely garish and eye-catching look in order to boost visibility during the winter months. It's predominantly yellow with the trademark upper graphic of the Merlin football appearing in purple and bright red, accentuated by silver outlines. The La Liga logo can be seen on the upper of the ball in purple.

Just like the regular, predominantly white rendition, the Nike Merlin Hi-Vis La Liga winter soccer ball boasts a revolutionary construction with just four panels to reduce the amount of seams and increase the size of the striking surface. A 3-D ink pattern and ACC tech (All Conditions Control) aim to further enhance ball control.
