December 8, 2014 - Adidas and Major League Soccer unveiled NATIVO, the official match ball for 2015, the League's 20th season. NATIVO's bold aesthetic meshes with the new MLS brand identity while the ball's materials and technology meet the unrivaled standards set by Brazuca, the official match ball of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™.

The NATIVO structure features six identical panels to optimize aerodynamics, stability and symmetry in flight. A unique, micro-texture surface provides improved grip, touch, and control. As Adidas' most tested ball ever, NATIVO performs well in all conditions and draws praise from professionals and amateurs around the world.

"Our partnership with MLS is incredibly important to us because together, we're ensuring our homegrown athletes have viable opportunities to play soccer at the highest level," said Ernesto Bruce, Director of Soccer at Adidas America. "Entering the league's 20th season, we're excited to bring our most advanced ball ever to the soccer pitch so we can help players perform at their best." .

NATIVO's design is an expression of the new MLS brand. Prominent maple leaf and star images represent the League's two home nations, Canada and the United States, while the red, white and blue reflect the colors of these nations and the MLS brand. The distinctive NATIVO name alludes to the ball's stature in the game and pride in the domestic League. NATIVO features the new MLS logo, the Adidas logo, along with the signature of MLS Commissioner Don Garber.
