Have You Seen The New Official Premier League Ball?

With club football for the 2017/18 season a thing of the past, football lovers will now shift their focus to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. However, the Premier League has already given fans a glimpse of next season's official matchday ball. Did you see it?

In partnership with world-renowned clothing line Nike, the Premier League took to their official Instagram and Twitter accounts to showcase the ball, which is known as "the Merlin".

The Premier League has claimed that the 2018/19 matchday ball is the most "technically advanced" ball they have ever created, with its "All Conditions Control" (ACC) technology.

The ACC aims for optimal first touches in all weather and pitch conditions, according to the Premier League's official website.

The Merlin boasts considerably less stitches than usual, with just four panels assembled to the new one, with last season's ball seamed together with 32 panels.

The ball will be used from 11 August, when the new EPL campaign kicks off.
