Official Nike Ball for 2011-12 Premier League Season: Leaked Photo

nike premier league ball Official Nike Ball for 2011 12 Premier League Season: Leaked Photo

A photograph has been leaked of the official ball for the 2011-12 Premier League season from Nike.

The ball, which will also be used in La Liga and Serie A, is called Seitiro. According to Football Shirt Culture, “[Nike] features what looks to be their most modern design to date for their football range. Each league gets it own logo printed on the ball aswell as their own inidividual colour seemingly reflecting each nation.”

Despite the poor image quality, the ball looks very modern and impressive. The true judge of how good a ball looks, to me, is when it’s seen in flight. Some balls that look smart often look horrid when in motion. Let’s hope this one looks as good in motion as it does above.

  2. Steve says:

    Very 80s and bland

  3. trickybrkn says:

    making the 90′s PL seem class.

  4. trickybrkn says:

    Nike seems to have lost its way… have you seen the US Women’s kit.

    its like a naughty nurse outfit

  5. Matt says:

    Just keep the tracer. that ball looks (and more importantly plays) awesome.

  6. osama khalid says:

    good and stylish but it surely needs some colours and extensive designing

  7. Brett says:

    There’s no way that’s the official EPL Match Ball. The shape of the panels is wrong. Nike has been using more “rounded” panels which lead to a more round ball (ahttp://www.nike.com/nikeos/p/nikefootball/en_US/commerce/gear?ll=en_US&ct=US&pid=318908&cid=102601&pgid=&p=PDP&). The straight sided panels are only used in Nike’s lower level balls.

    I suppose the design could be right, though.

  8. King Eric says:

    i miss the umbro/mitre balls of the 90′s.

  9. Ivan says:

    At least it’s not an Adidas Jabulani; have you guys played w/ that abomination? Worst ball in human history. The Nike balls I’ve played with are just fine, I am sure this one is no different.

  10. Ross says:

    I really wish Adidas made the Premier League Matchball, they’d create something unique and different. Not that this isnt but Im sick of all these years of Nike’s dictation. Its time for a change people!

  11. tom says:

    what about sondico

  12. Miguel says:

    Nope!

  13. Nathan says:

    all of you shut up it is great and soft
