Here’s the new official match ball for the new MLS season which is based on the 2010 World Cup Jabulani.

The MLS ball features exactly the same technology as the ball that will be used in South Africa and continues the adidas / MLS connection which has been in operation since 2006.

The MLS ball goes with a Blue, Green and Silver colour scheme which is taken from the Major League Soccer logo.

3-D panel shapes:

The adidas MLS match ball features a completely new, ground-breaking technology. Eight 3-D spherically formed EVA and TPU panels are molded together, harmoniously enveloping the inner carcass. The result is an energetic unit combined with perfect roundness.

Grip’n’Groove profile

Aero grooves:

Aero grooves create the clearly visible profile on the ball’s surface. The Grip’n’Groove profile circles round the entire ball in an optimal aerodynamic way. The integrated grooves provide unmatched flight characteristics, making this the most stable and most accurate adidas ball ever. The ground-breaking performance features of the ball have been confirmed in comprehensive comparison tests at Loughborough University in England and countless checks in the wind tunnel and the adidas football laboratory in Scheinfeld, Germany.


Since the introduction of the “goose bumps” surface for the last European Championship ball, the microtexture of the new ball’s outer skin has also been given a visible facelift. The ball has a futuristic texture with fantastic grip, giving players full control over the ball under all weather conditions.

    Very nice. Now hopefully this year Toronto FC can put that ball in the back of the net enough times to make the playoffs!
