Adidas 2017 MLS Ball - Nativo

This is the official Adidas 2017 MLS soccer ball, Nativo.

Based on Adidas' most recent football template, used e.g. for the latest European Qualifiers and Confederations Cup balls, the Adidas Nativo MLS ball is predominantly white and incorporates both the US and the Canadian in it's 'X'-like panel shape.

As for the past few seasons, the MLS 2017 ball is again called "Nativo" as a "nod to the ball's stature in the game and pride in the domestic league." Besides the flag-inspired graphic base, the MLS logo is also visible on the Adidas Nativo 2017 MLS football, in a monochromatic black version, while the signature of Commissioner Don Garber also has its place on the ball.

Tech-wise, based on the Adidas Brazuca, the Adidas 2017 MLS soccer ball features six panels and an upper structure that was designed to offer improved stability and symmetry in flight.
