After unveiling the new World Cup ball, the Brazuca, adidas has followed that up with the launch of the 2014 adidas MLS Match Ball.

Retaining the unique six-panel design seen for the Brazuca, this new MLS Prime ball is a redesign of the colorful world cup ball to bring new color and excitement to the league’s official match ball.
