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.
okay. @kreso99: no
It's like the same dumb one last year!
There's not really a difference from last year. :P
this is nice! modern technology but also looking like the adidas classic world cup ball: www.google.co.uk/imgres
I wish Adidas and Nike would keep the names of their balls the same when the slap a different design on them. I wouldn't mind if they added an additional name onto it, but if it is a Tango, they should keep calling it a Tango. Same with the Nike balls.
With the Jabulani and Speedcell, they pretended like the Speedcell was fixed version of the Jabulani when they just changed where the design went on the ball and declared the ball fixed. I had no problem with the Jabulani, I think altitude and improper inflated pressure were the issues.
