Nike have revealed the new football set to be used in leagues across Europe during the upcoming season.

The manufacturer claims the Total 90 Tracer is “the world’s top performing football,” and it will be used by leading football leagues including the English Premier League, Italy’s Serie A, and Spain’s La Liga.

Developed in tandem with the world’s premier footballers and teams, the ball was “meticulously engineered down to every detail including the bladder’s tension, hand-sewn seams and surface texture.”

“The world’s best leagues, federations and players demand the most innovative product on the market, that’s why our brief was very simple: to create the world’s best football,” said Chris Bond, Nike General Manager of Soccer Equipment.

He added: “As the game gets even faster and more competitive around the world, we’ve designed a product to exceed the demands of today’s players from the amateur to elite levels.”

Nike maintain that the Tracer is “the most pinpoint accurate ball in the world.”

“A great ball makes a real difference for a player, a team and potentially the outcome of a game,” said Sergio Agüero of Atlético Madrid.

“The Total 90 Tracer is responsive and easily controlled in every situation. I can shoot with confidence, knowing it’s going to go exactly where I want it to every time.”

Nike explained that a five-layer casing and construction improves touch, giving players maximum control and greater command and presence on the pitch.

The US-based manufacturer will be looking for the new ball’s introduction to cause less of a stir than the Adidas Jabulani which wreaked havoc at the World Cup in South Africa.
