Nike 2019 Brasileirão Ball

This is the new Nike Brasileirão and Copa do Brasil football.

The new ball is predominantly white with details in blue, green, yellow and silver.

Like the models already used in the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A, the new ball has just four panels instead of the 12 that were usually seen in the previous balls. This has also reduced the number of seams by 40%, eliminated hard points and created an ideal point for a more accurate shot. It also features a new latex bladder and ACC on the outside to further improve performance and reliability.

"We are excited to present the new official ball of the Brasileirão and Copa do Brasil and take all of Nike's innovation to what promises to be an incredible spectacle," said Luiz Estevam, director of soccer for Nike Brazil.
