As the Premier League fixtures were revealed, Nike unveiled their new design for the ball that will be used in the next campaign.
Thirty years on from the very first Premier League season, the colour scheme of the new Nike Flight reflects that of the original Mitre ball used from 1992-95.
The third edition of Nike’s Flight design, the new ball contains the same specs as its predecessors.
This includes AerowSculpt technology, which is aimed at improving consistency and giving it a truer flight.
Nike claims that the Flight ball offers improved aerodynamics through a revolutionary design.
The new season will mark Nike’s 23rd term as the official ball supplier for the Premier League, with Mitre fulfilling the role from 1992 to 2000.
The colour scheme of the new ball is likely to bring back nostalgic memories for fans who can remember the 1992-93 season, when Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United beat Aston Villa to the title by one point.
The new 2022-23 Premier League Ball will be available to buy from July 15 and will be used for the first time when Arsenal meet Crystal Palace on the opening day.
