For the first time since the 2008-09 season, the official ball that will be used in the Premier League during the 2015-16 season will be a red and white gradient.

The leaked photo of the ball (see above) shows a unique panel design from Nike that features a crimson and white gradient. The ball, named Nike Ordem, will officially be revealed in July, 2015.

The new Premier League 15-16 Soccer Ball has 12 panels in a three layer casing system, combined with black aerodynamic Nike Aerow Trac grooves for maximum visibility,” says FootyHeadlines, “Recent Nike Premier League balls were combined with different tones of blue.

“Technology wise, the new Nike Ordem 3 15-16 Official Premier League Football features the same characteristics as the Nike Ordem 14-15 Premier League Match Ball. The Nike Ordem Ball is Nike’s ‘most innovative, technologically advanced and aerodynamically tuned ball to date.'”
