Three of the world’s biggest soccer leagues will use Nike’s Ordem 2 ball for 2014/15. Well, they’ll use the same ball in three different color patterns.

The Serie A ball will feature pink highlights, while La Liga’s Ordem 2 is orange and the Premier League will have a blue hue.

Since 15 of the Premier League’s 20 teams have some sort of blue in their crest — 16 if you want to stretch with Liverpool — we suppose blue is a decent representation.

From The Telegraph:

Nike has unveiled the new ball that will be used for the 2014-15 Premier League season.

All 20 clubs have been using the Nike Ordem 2 ball during pre-season training ahead of the start of the new campaign on Saturday Aug 16.

Nike says the new ball features “high-contrast graphics for enhanced visibility, perfect sphericity allows ball to fly faster, farther and more accurately and has cross-linked, nitrogen-expanded foam casing for exceptional shape retention.”

    You will only be able to find the blue one in a store in the us, yknow, unless you want the other two with the premier league crest on it

    Visually it looks like a round ball that’s received some updated graphics. Being a former defender/goalie when I was growing up I couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn when shooting so it wouldn’t matter. At this point, are there really that many enhancements that can be made to the ball? I would think that it’s been pretty well covered.
