Nike’s recent football related headlines continue with the announcement of a special (PRODUCT)RED™ ball that has been released as part of the ‘Lace Up, Save Lives’ partnership between the two entities. The ball will be used by three leagues: Barclays Premier League, Spain’s La Liga and Italy’s Serie A  at all home games over the weekend of March 13th and 14th.

The (NIKE)RED ball is a specially designed T90 Ascente – the same make of ball currently used by all three leagues and boasts all of the technological innovations that the players are accustomed to week in week out, but features the (RED) laces graphic on the exterior. These balls are available to buy now for £150 from www.nikestore.com .
