Nike Flight ball

A new Nike ball is kicked off at the start of each season, but you could say that in 2020/21 the Nike Flight ball which will grace the competition is the most innovative in the 20 years during which Nike has supplied the match balls.  

Extensive research

The Nike Flight is the result of an eight-year investigation by the Nike Equipment Innovation Lab into improving the consistency of football flight.

Incorporating new AerowSculpt technology, the Nike Flight ball offers improved aerodynamics through a revolutionary ball design. 

The angular chevrons and Laser Crimson glow also give it a clean and striking look, inviting players to hit that "sweet spot".
