Talk about an absolute iconic remake! It was back in 2001-2002 Premier League season when Nike dropped the original Geo Merlin ball. It quickly became a fan favorite, and for a lot of players it still stands to be one of the best soccer balls ever released. In fact, it was labeled “the roundest ball ever.”
This throwback remake takes that magical design into the modern game, with the visuals on-point and the performance just like you’d expect. The Premier League Merlin 20th Anniversary Ball features 26 hand-stitched panels, providing the perfect balance of touch and ball flight. You also get a durable, smooth casing and iconic logos and details, just like the original.
For those that are able to get their hands on a ball – there are only 600 available, and it is one per customer – it comes with a special edition presentation box and some really cool additional text on the interior. You also get a retro card detailing the season stats and a ball display cone to showcase your ball on top of. That is, of course, if you can resist taking it out onto a pitch!
