MLS has gone gold for September by supporting the 5th annual Kick Childhood Cancer campaign as part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. To promote awareness the league has been using a gold and white match ball across September fixtures.

Supported by all 23 MLS clubs, the month-long campaign will feature a commemorative gold adidas Nativo 2018 Official Match Ball and limited-edition merchandise designed by Los Angeles-based illustrator Daniel Sulzberg. Kick Childhood Cancer-related events and observations will also happen in stadiums, digitally and on TV broadcasts.
