The most tested MLS ball to date, the structure of the NATIVO features the same innovative and widely-praised panel shape as the Brazuca – a unique symmetry of six identical panels that are thermally-bonded together to keep out moisture. In addition, the ball offers premium surface structure designed to provide improved grip, touch, stability and aerodynamics.
The design on the NATIVO combines the symbols of the United States of America and Canada to represent the unity existing within North America soccer. The country flags are then covered by semi-opaque black and grey portions inspired by urban design, a texture inspired by the influence soccer has in popular culture as it transcends from stadium to street and vice-versa. The design also serves as a testament to the MLS supporters’ groups who start their walks to the stadiums and carry that passion into the game.
The adidas NATIVO is available for purchase today at adidas.com and MLSstore.com for $160.
