Friday, 23 August 2019

This is the new Nike 2019-2020 Merlin Serie A ball.

The new Serie A ball brings a fresh new look that sees different panels colored in navy and yellow, with the oversized Swooshes also carrying the base color white with a black border. A large Serie A logo sits inside a white panel, surrounded by a stunning splatter graphic.

Unlike its Premier League counterpart before, the Nike Merlin Serie A 2019-2020 ball does not feature a custom, modular design but instead is based on the default colorway of the new Merlin.
