Although the Premier League season has only recently ended, Nike has unveiled the official match ball that will be used throughout the 2020/21 season. The new ball is the latest Nike Flight evolution, featuring improved aerodynamics to assist the ball’s flight through the air.
The ball’s design emphasizes elements that are important for the Premier League, with a focus on speed and precision. Another innovation comes through the use of AerowSculpt technology, which is used to guarantee the ball’s consistency, which Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane believes is the most important factor. “The most important thing about a ball is being able to put it where you want it every time,” said Harry Kane. “Consistency is the most important thing, and it’s so important to have confidence in the ball you’re playing with.
The design of the ball is then finished with a chevron pattern and “Laser Crimson” detailing to complement its technical innovations.
The Nike Flight ball is available now from the Nike web store, with the season slated to begin on September 12.
