The Premier League Debut Balls initiative celebrates the achievement of homegrown players making their first appearance in the top flight. 

A Debut Ball is given to all homegrown debutants who have been developed at an Academy of a club in the English football pyramid for three years or more prior to their 21st birthday.

Each player receives an official Nike match ball from the season of their debut, housed in a personalised, engraved case.

Launched in 2015/16, the Debut Balls initiative also underlines the Premier League's ongoing commitment to develop more and better homegrown players through its Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP).
