Nike Unveil UEFA EURO 2022 Official Match Ball

Set to be hosted in England next year, EURO 2022 is fast approaching, and as part of the hype building towards kick off Nike have unveiled the official match ball for the tournament.

Like all international tournaments recently, the latest instalment of the women’s UEFA EURO tournament had to be delayed by a year. Therefore we no longer have EURO 2021, instead replaced by EURO 2022, which is set to take place in England, commencing on 6 July, with the final taking place on 31 July. And now we know what the match ball will look like, which comes courtesy of Nike.

Based on the Nike Flight ball, which is used for the Premier League among other competitions, the EURO 2022 ball features a white base with a light blue, pink and purple graphic that swirls across the surface, in a similar fashion to the organic look of the current Premier League ball. 

Nike signed a three-year partnership with UEFA back in 2019. The partnership would therefore technically end in March 2022, but whether this has been extended due to the pandemic or for other reasons is currently unclear.

We are delighted to have such a prestigious global brand such as Nike, who are committed to equality within sport and renowned for empowering female athletes all over the world,” said Nadine Kessler, UEFA’s head of women’s football. 

Becoming the official match ball supplier and supporter of UEFA Women’s Football across our competitions and campaigns, including Together #WePlayStrong, not only sends a powerful message that the game is now being judged and supported on its own merits, it underlines also its important milestones beyond the field of play."
