What you’re gawping at there is the new Premier League matchball that the likes of Charlie Adam and Tom Huddlestone will be pinging out for throw-ins as of next season.

Rather predictably, it’s called the ‘Nike Ordem 2016/2017 Premier League’ and it’s a colourful wee beastie, ain’t it?

According to Nike, the 2016/17 Ordem is their “most innovative, technologically advanced and aerodynamically tuned ball to date” – which is a round-the-houses way of saying it’s the roundest football ever created. Again.

The design is also “bold”, featuring as it does the brand new Premier League livery for the first time.

For what it’s worth, we dig it. How’s about you?

    Looks like it’s held together with black tape.

  2. Deano says:

    It looks like that old style TV test card without the girl and clown wrapped around a ball.

  3. Harry Catknapp says:

    Looks ridiculous, but strangely I quite like it! Need to see it in action first for final judgement.

    I am sure visibility for spectators (especially TV) will be quite poor. Too much green in it…
