Nike Merlin Premier League 19-20 Ball Revealed

The Premier League 2019-2020 ball was officially revealed by Nike today. The new Nike Merlin football introduces an interesting look with details in navy and pink while retaining the features of its predecessor.

While La Liga will have a Puma ball from next season, the Premier League announced a new six-year deal with Nike last November. We will see Nike balls used in the Premier League until at least 2025. The Serie A will also continue with Nike, although we haven't seen the new 2019-20 ball yet.

Nike Merlin Premier League Ball 19-20 - White / Navy / Pink

This is the new Nike 2019-2020 Merlin Premier League OMB.

The new Premier League ball brings a fresh new look that sees different panels colored in navy and pink, with the oversized Swooshes also carrying the bright pink color. A large Premier League logo sits inside the pink panel which comes with a splatter graphic as well.

Inspired by England's cities as well as classic Nike Air Max styles, the modular design of the ball allows for easy changing of the overall look. We could see more than just the regular two versions of the ball throughout the upcoming season thanks to this.

Kieran Ronan, GM, Nike Global Equipment said: “We wanted to design a ball that specifically illustrated the traits of Premier League football. A ball that felt hyper-technical and precise in nature but also inspired by this English culture of living and breathing Premier League football.”

Tech-wise, the new Nike Merlin ball is the same as one used in the previous season.
