NIKE'S MERLIN BALL IS THE LATEST HI-VIS DESIGN
The new Premier League Merlin football integrates All Conditions Control (ACC) and is being introduced as the solution to the reduced daylight of winter to provide optimal touch and control in all weather and pitch conditions.
An innovative four-panel construction gives the ball a bigger sweet spot, and a latex bladder helps maintain consistent air pressure and shape.
The ball will be on show from October 28 to next year on March 31, when the clocks go forward.
That means the first games scheduled to use the new ball will be Burnley vs Chelsea and Crystal Palace vs Arsenal at 13:30. Whilst Manchester United vs Everton later on this Sunday and Tottenham vs Man City on Monday are also set to use the new ball.
We love an orange ball – there's something very festive about it.
