New Nike Flight ball to debut for 2020-21 season

By DG Staff

ABU DHABI 30 August 2020: The 2020-21 Arabian Gulf League season will see the introduction of the new Nike Flight ball.

The ball was developed after eight years of investigating the consistency of a football flight by the Nike Equipment Innovation Lab, with more than 800 athletes participating in testing 68 different iterations of the ball.

The new Nike Flight ball carries a fuse-welded four panel construction with 40 percent fewer stiff seams than a traditional 12-panel ball. This construction enables a prominent sweet spot for superior touch and performance, while the Nike All Conditions Control, 3D ink, introduced in 2014, helps ensure optimal grip in wet or dry conditions, said official news agency Wam.
