Nike Football has recreated the 2000/2001 Geo Merlin ball in a limited-edition run of 600 units worldwide.

The legendary Nike Geo Merlin is helmed as one of the most iconic footballs ever used in the Premier League. It is known for its Dynamic Support Structure, which keeps the ball in shape when struck, as well as its high-solid polyurethane and polyethylene foam construction which ensures responsiveness. The football also features a vulcanized latex rubber exterior, which provides unrivaled amounts of energy return when kicked.

It is labeled as the roundest, fastest, most accurate ball ever, having helped score 992 goals in the 2000/2001 season of the Premier League. This like-for-like recreation celebrates the 20-year-long partnership between Nike and the Premier League and is presented on a specially designed ball stand and comes packaged in a dual-branded box.

Pick up the Nike Geo Merlin for €175 EUR (approx. $194 USD) via the Nike website while stocks last.
