With the 19/20 season barely having wrapped up, attention already turns to the next campaign, with Nike unveiling the official match ball for the 20/21 Premier League season, report agencies.
44 days. That’s all we’ve got to wait until the Premier League gets back underway for the 20/21 season, and to whet our appetites (as if we need it) Nike have launched the official match ball. Yep, this fresh design of the recently unveiled Nike Flight ball is what we’re going to see rippling in the back of the net come Saturday 12 September.
The Nike 20/21 Serie A ball was the first to be unveiled recently, giving the revolutionary Flight ball a new match ready look, and that’s now followed up by the Premier League ball. The English variation sees red and black details running across the white base for a very different look to what’s been used in the league in recent years.
The Flight ball in case you missed it, has been designed to address issues of inconsistent aerodynamics through a revolutionary design.
Incorporating Nike’s new AerowSculpt technology, the ball delivers a measurable benefit of 30 percent truer flight than its Nike
AerowSculpt technology promotes air movement around the ball rather than gripping its surface, reducing wobble for a more predictable and consistent flight.
It also gives the ball the unique look that it has. In addition, the Flight ball also repurposes Nike All Conditions Control (ACC) 3D ink, using the 3D ink layout to strategically print “micro flaps” along Nike AerowSculpt.
