Merlin Fifa Match Ball
FEWER SEAMS, BIGGER SWEET SPOT.
Tech innovation arrives on the pitch in the Nike Merlin Football. Taking traditional 12-panel construction to a 4-panel configuration substantially reduces seams and opens up a wider striking surface. Aerowtrac grooves keep the ball flying where you want it to go, while 3-D ink patterns strategically raise the texture in certain zones for enhanced boot-to-ball interaction.
