For lovers of football, the new season brings with it a plethora of exciting new things. From kit, to boots and the footballs themselves.
Nike, the official ball supplier to three of the biggest leagues in Europe — Barclays Premier League, Serie A TIM and La Liga BBVA — has unveiled the new Ordem football for the start of the new season.
Nike are calling it their most innovative, technologically advanced and aerodynamically tuned ball to date – a big claim, but one I’m in no doubt is right on the money.
Adjusting to the modern game is complex and it has become more physically and technically demanding. The Nike Ordem football allows players to take control of the game knowing the ball will stay true.
Always thinking about the future and the innovation of the game, this ball is built for the next generation of footballers, the Nike Ordem offers optimal touch with new fuse-welded panels, unprecedented flight control with new aerodynamic NIKE AEROW TRAC grooves and maximum visibility with Nike RaDaR technology to help see the ball quicker.
The Nike Ordem ball is designed and engineered for a highly sensitive feel and explosive response off the foot. The ball consists of 12 fuse-welded panels in a three-layer casing system, and a poly-blend wrapped, free-floating carbon latex bladder.
The Nike Ordem features NIKE AEROW TRAC grooves, Nike Football’s newest proprietary innovation. The grooves are engineered to grip and channel the air to produce the truest trajectory and most consistent flight, which help ensure stability and accuracy in mid-air.
The surface of the Nike Ordem is emblazoned with Nike’s RaDaR (Rapid Decision and Response) technology. This is a graphic pattern, unique to each league, which creates a flickering effect as the ball rotates. RaDaR makes it easier for players to see the ball in their peripheral vision, allowing for faster reactions and decision-making.
The Nike Ordem ball for the Barclays Premier League, La Liga BBVA and Serie A TIM will be available at nike.com and in store from July 17.
Awesome – eh!
