Italian Serie A News, Results, Analysis and Features on Football Soccer

Total 90 Omni is the new Nike ball to be used as the official Serie A match ball for the 2008-2009 season. The Omni will be used in the Italian Cup, the Italian Super Cup, the Serie B championships, and finally the Primavera championship also.

Officially presented by the Italian Football League and Nike on Wednesday July 02, was tested for more than two years and is engineered to set new performance standards for consistency, accuracy and visibility.

Innovative ball design has panel geometry placing the hexagons and pentagons precisely together to create a nearly perfect sphere, which distributes pressure more evenly across the panels for what the engineers call a “360-Degree Sweet Spot”.

The design of the ball is also beneficial for the players. The black asymmetrical band encircling the ball generates a more powerful visual signal as it rotates, providing a quicker read on ball location, spin rate, speed and trajectory from any angle.

There will also be a winter version of the Total 90 Omni, which is also the official ball for the Premier League in England and La Liga in Spain.

I love that Azzurri colour strip.
