If you played computer football simulations at least once from 2004 to 2020, you probably saw this most popular ball. This is Nike Total 90 Aerow. It’s a cult ball, without which not a single match of domestic European championships for several years has been complete.
Even in the picture, you can see the large seams that were used to connect the panels. Do not forget that we are considering a ball that was created before the era of thermal bonding. However, Nike engineers used all available technology. This was reflected in the multilayer structure of the ball cover. The Nike guys decided to add an extra two layers of vulcanized rubber and pressed foam to the four standard layers. Therefore, many forwards of European clubs demonstrated really cannon shots on goal.
Nike Total 90 Aerow is the official Premier League ball for the 2004-2005 season.
