As the Premier League transitions to the final stages of the 2019-20 season, Nike will debut its latest match ball: The Premier League “Tunnel Vision” Merlin.

Incorporating Nike Aerowtrac technology, the ball is engineered to provide an accurate and stable flight by helping ensure a steady flow of air across the ball no matter what speed it is moving at. The “Tunnel Vision” design highlights the balance of clarity and disorder with bright orange circles amid a flurry of graphics.

The Premier League “Tunnel Vision” Merlin will make its debut during the Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur fixture February 22. The ball is available February 17 on
