It is officially the new season and with every new season comes a new ball. Tuttosport have revealed details on the 'Nike Incyte' which is designed to be easy to control and to fly through the air with a smooth trajectory. The colour of the ball - a range of various blues to accompany the predominant white - is intended to make the ball more visible, allowing players to react quicker on the field. Microgrooves in the ball should also enable players to pass it around with more zip. The ball will be used in competitive play for the first time in the Supercoppa Italiana when Lazio will face off against Juventus.

After a quiet week of rumours,
Corriere dello Sport report that Claudio Lotito will meet with representatives of Pescara over the next 48 hours. Pescara, who were relegated to Serie B, are said to be interesting in permanently signing Giuseppe Sculli who spent the last 6 months at the club. In exchange, Lazio are said to be looking at players rather than money. The 21 year-old Croatian Ante Vukisic is one option as is the young Italian centre-back Marco Capuano, who was instrumental in their promotion but has vanished from the radar in the last 12 months.
