Adidas & MLS Unveil New Match Ball For 2013
Never expect too much change when it comes to the MLS match ball but adidas and the MLS have unveiled the updated PRIME, the official match ball for the 2013 MLS season. The adidas PRIME features a new, more aerodynamic construction engineered for increased control and consistent movement.
After an exciting 2012 season for Major League Soccer, we are very excited to unveil the new 2013 adidas PRIME, said Ernesto Bruce, MLS manager for adidas. In 2013, the new match ball will debut at MLS First Kick and will be used by thousands of youth players around the country as MLS continues to expand its player development footprint.
The adidas PRIME uses a cutting-edge panel bonding technique engineered to create a rounder more aerodynamic and water resistant ball for increased accuracy. The PRIME s matte finish and texture provides enhanced ball control while the updated bladder increases air retention and reduces water uptake, allowing the adidas PRIME to hold its shape after repeated kicks in all weather conditions.
