A supposed image of the football which will be used in the Premier League next season has been leaked online.
The design features purple, blue and green colours, as well as the redesigned Premier League crest.
This image of the ball comes on the same day online documents circulated claiming to contain next season’s top flight fixtures – nine days before they are officially announced on 15 June.
However, an official Premier League statement has confirmed the leaked fixtures are fake.
It said: “We understand the excitement that a new set of Premier League fixtures holds to the fans and media.
“What has been put into the public domain over this last weekend is a hoax.
“We would encourage all fans and media to wait for the official release on 15 June.”
Next season’s Premier League campaign will begin on 13 August and end on 21 May 2017.
