The Ball Means More
Meet this season’s Merlin, inspired by England’s urban landscapes and vibrant football culture; designed exclusively for the 20th anniversary of Nike’s partnership with the Premier League.
Football is more than just a sport, it means freedom and brings joy to so many young people. The new Nike Merlin ball is designed to inspire creative expression and fuel football culture.
“We wanted to design a ball that felt hyper-technical and precise in nature but also inspired by the English culture of living and breathing Premier League football.”
Kieran Ronan, GM, Global Equipment
