American sportswear company, Nike has released images of the new match ball that will be used in the Premier League next season.
The match ball, tagged ‘Nike Ordem V’ is the 17th Premier League ball to be produced by the American sportswear giants since they took over from Mitre as the competition’s match ball provider in 2001, according to the Telegraph.
While introducing the new match ball, Premier League’s official website said: “Extensively tested by some of the world’s leading players in its development phase, the Ordem V is a performance-orientated piece of design.
“A unique construction distributes pressure evenly across the ball to ensure an accurate strike while Aerotrac grooves in the surface help ensure a stable flight through the air.
“In addition, graphics are printed on to the surface using a 3D ink that creates a textured feel for enhanced grip and feel.
“Its Distorted Motion Graphic flickers as the ball rotates, helping players catch sight of the ball quicker and so make rapid decisions as they react to the game around them.
The ball will be on sale from June 5
