SINGAPORE - The 2015 Barclays Asia Trophy tournament to be held at the National Stadium in Singapore on July 15 and 18 will be the first in the world to use Nike's latest football - the Ordem 3.

All four matches of the quadrangular tournament - which features English Premier League sides Arsenal, Stoke City and Everton as well as a Singapore Select XI - will feature the Ordem 3, which will be the official ball of the 2015/16 seasons of the EPL, Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A.

The ball delivers accurate flight, consistent touch and maximum visibility, along with a geometric 12-panel design that enhances its flight.

It will be launched globally on Wednesday at Nike.com and in stores worldwide.
