Soccer Ball Clip Art

Soccer is undoubtedly the biggest sport in the world.

Just about every country plays it with over 250 million players worldwide. Nielson’s World Football Report learned that more than four out of 10 people around the world consider themselves soccer fans. Events such as the FIFA World Cup regularly draw billions of fans in viewership.

And of course, the soccer ball is symbolic of the beautiful game. So it’s not a surprise to see plenty of soccer ball clip art present around the world wide web.

The most common clip art will naturally be of a soccer ball. The basic soccer ball pattern will be present, but given the various designs of soccer balls today, you can expect clip art with plenty of different patterns as well.

There are also many other variations of soccer ball clip art including personifying the ball by giving it eyes and a mouth as well as arms and legs. There is also clip art featuring club logos and emblems that have a soccer ball prominent in them.

Some clip art features the globe displayed on soccer balls — symbolizing it as a global game — while others have a trail of flames behind a ball in motion.

But it doesn’t just have to feature a soccer ball alone. You can also have boys and girls, men and women all included in the clip art kicking, passing or juggling the ball.

You can also find clip art including the goal posts as well as the pitch and arena. The possibilities are endless when it comes to soccer ball clip art.

Here are some examples of soccer ball clip art:

How To Draw A Soccer Ball

Soccer is undoubtedly the biggest sport in the world.

Just about every country plays it with over 250 million players worldwide. Nielson’s World Football Report learned that more than four out of 10 people around the world consider themselves soccer fans. Events such as the FIFA World Cup regularly draw billions of fans in viewership.

And of course, the soccer ball is symbolic of the beautiful game. Soccerballworld is here to provide you with a guide on how to draw the perfect soccer ball.

Step 1: Draw a circle. If you want a perfect one, trace around a cup or similar circular object.

Step 2: Draw a hexagon within the circle. It should be more than half the size of the original circle and positioned in the center. If you want to make sure it’s centered, draw a horizontal and vertical line in your circle such that it’s like a cross.

Step 3: From the top side of the hexagon, draw a pentagon.

Step 4: Repeat the above for the lower left and lower right sides of the hexagon.

Step 5: Fill the remaining empty sides with hexagons. You now have the main pattern of the soccer ball.

Step 6: Fill the rest of the ball and make sure the pattern is maintained.

Step 7: Color the pentagons black.

And there you have it — you have now drawn a soccer ball in just seven simple steps.

OFFICIAL 2015 MLS MATCH BALL

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.

Adidas and Major League Soccer unveiled a newly designed NATIVO, the official match ball for the 2016 season. The most tested MLS ball to date, NATIVO utilizes the latest Adidas technology to deliver the highest level of performance to the entire league. 

Extensively tested by teams around the world, every element of NATIVO’s construction has been scrutinized to provide the greatest control and accuracy. The Adidas NATIVO includes a unique symmetry of six identical panels alongside a textured surface that has been updated to ensure the truest flight of the ball.   

“Each year we strive to take the official match ball to the next level of performance,” said Zola Short, Senior Sports Marketing Manager, Adidas. “The NATIVO delivers on that goal while giving clubs and fans a look that’s unique to Major League Soccer.”

 The NATIVO’s design continues to be inspired by MLS’ three pillars of Club, Country and Community. Infusing the flags of the league’s two home countries, the United States and Canada, NATIVO features new stars, stripes and maple leaf decals across the paneling. The ball is imprinted with the MLS crest and Adidas logo along with the signature of MLS Commissioner Don Garber.

Nativo MLS_2017

Adidas and Major League Soccer Unveil the 2017 Official Match Ball

-NATIVO’s new design features symbols of the United States and Canada representing unity in North America soccer-

-Design inspiration epitomizes how soccer transcends the field-

-Ball debut on-pitch on March 3rd as 2017 MLS season kicks off-

Portland, Ore. January 12, 2017 – Adidas and Major League Soccer today launched the newly designed NATIVO, the Official Match Ball for the 2017 MLS season.

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 2017 MLS Official Match Ball attests to how year after year Adidas Soccer brings the world’s best innovative technology to the field of play,” said Ernesto Bruce, Adidas Sr. Director of Soccer. “The 2017 NATIVO’s blueprint showcases the spirit of Adidas Soccer and Major League Soccer blended through a creative design language that highlights the U.S. and Canadian flags, while also featuring a unique texture that will inspire soccer fans across North America to take their game from the stadium to the street.”

MLS_2017_NATIVO3

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.

Same ball construction as the Brazuca.

Adidas Press Release

Tuesday, May 1, 2001 , Herzogenaurach, Germany

Adidas unveils the new Official Matchball for the UEFA Champions League®-English

Herzogenaurach, May 1, 2001 – adidas, the world’s leading football brand, launches today its first ever Official Matchball exclusively designed and developed for the UEFA Champions League®, the world’s most prestigious club competition. The new ball named “Finale“ is the latest result of adidas’ quest for excellence and innovation and a long tradition of improving the game of football by developing the very best equipment.

The adidas Finale features a unique design, inspired by the UEFA Champions League® starball logo, one of the most recognizable symbols in world football. The new design is completely different from the traditional adidas Tango design. This underlines adidas’ commitment to break new ground in the new millennium developing new and distinct products for the most important events in football. The exclusive Champions League design inextricably links adidas and the new matchball to the very best of football.

On the technical side, the adidas Finale was developed based on the adidas EQUIPMENT Terrestra Silverstream, the Official Matchball of the UEFA European Football Championship 2000™. Softer, faster and more accurate than any other adidas soccer ball before, the adidas Finale also features a layer of highly compressed, gas-filled micro-ballons of equal size (syntactic foam), proven during EURO 2000™ and probably contributing to the highest average goal rate in a major tournament ever. In the development phase, adidas involved top players such as Zinedine Zidane, Raúl, Patrick Kluivert and Alessandro Del Piero to test the ball, all of them known for their special feel for the goal.

“Our commitment to the UEFA Champions League® underlines our determination to further strengthen our position as the number one soccer brand in the world. Our introduction of the UEFA Champions League® licensed products as well as the development of an exclusive Champions League matchball is just the latest proof of our efforts. This is the tournament where the best play the very best – a natural place for adidas to be,“ said Erich Stamminger, Member of the Executive Board of adidas-Salomon AG, responsible for global marketing.

The new adidas Finale matchball will be used in the semi-final matches Real Madrid-Bayern München and Bayern München-Real Madrid on May 1 and 9 and naturally in the Final in Milan, May 23, 2001.

Adidas presents Official Match Ball for UEFA Champions League 2007 Final 

Champions_finale_Athens_2007

Athens/Herzogenaurach, March 8th, 2007 – Today adidas presents the Official Match Ball for the UEFA Champions League™ Final in Athens on May 23rd: the adidas “Finale Athens”. The Greek capital is hosting its 4th UEFA Champions League™ Final in the newly built 2004 Olympic Stadium, where Europe’s best football clubs will play the Final of the 2006/2007 season.

 The adidas “Finale Athens” features the successful adidas +Teamgeist™ technology, a 14-panel configuration. It reduces the number of three-panel touch points by 60% and the total length of panel lines by 15%. This creates a perfectly round ball allowing great accuracy and control for Europe’s best football clubs. The combination of the revolutionary panel shape, a new carcass construction and the thermal bonding technology provide this official match ball for the Final with the best performance qualities ever.

The design of the adidas “Finale Athens” is based on the widely recognizable UEFA Champions League™ star ball logo and is executed in blue and white, representing the colors of Greece. Celebrating the city where the first modern Olympics of 1896 took place, adidas named the ball for the UEFA Champions League™ Final the “Finale Athens“. The adidas “Finale Athens” is available globally at a retail price of $129.00 as of today.  

Both finalists will receive the Finale Athens ball for use in their pre-match training in advance of the 23 May showpiece at the Olympic Stadium. The team that comes out on top in the final will also have the exclusive right to use the ball for home matches as they defend the prestigious trophy next season, as was the case with FC Barcelona this term. The draw for the latter rounds of the UEFA Champions League will take place in Athens tomorrow.
