Monday 01 July 2013
From Monday, 1 July, the new Nike Incyte Ball, the official ball of the 2013/14 Barclays Premier League, will go on sale in shops.
Continuing the tradition of making the most technologically advanced footballs in the game, the Nike Incyte ball features performance innovation that increases reaction, touch and ball flight:
Nike RaDaR (Rapid Decision and Response) technology maximizes the ball’s visibility allowing players to see the ball earlier and react quicker, while five-layer construction optimizes the feel of the first touch, allowing players to bring the ball under control quickly and with ease.
A high-elasticity layer on the surface allows for a cleaner strike and helps the ball travel with more speed. The micro-textured casing also delivers a more accurate ball trajectory than before.
The new ball will make its official debut later this month at the Barclays Asia Trophy, which is the only Premier League competition to be held outside Great Britain. The tournament features Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, the 2011/12 Barclays Premier League champions, Sunderland and South China, the champions of Hong Kong.
