The league outfitters decided to go in a drastically different direction with this year’s design, opting for an avant-garde look with the normally white surface painted a blue and red motif while conversely the colored panels have been left white.
Its re-designed skin features a metallic prism effect and a detailed red, white and blue galaxy graphic within the panels. And improved construction provides optimal force distribution for shots on goal.
The new ball will make its debut in January’s MLS adidas Player Combine in Orlando, before being used in the preseason and then throughout the entire 2019 season.
At first glance the ball appears to be a bit garish, but admittedly the design is starting to grow on us. What do you think of the new design?
