Retro Vibes Reign: adidas Unveils 2024 MLS Official Match Ball Celebrating 30 Years Since 1994 World Cup

Get ready for the buzz once more. Our friends over at adidas and Major League Soccer have brought out the big guns – unveiling the official match ball that will grace the pitches for the 2024 season.

Its vibrant design pays homage to the 30th anniversary of the 1994 FIFA World Cup, a year jammed with memories. The year 1994 resonates deeply within the world of football, especially for the U.S. as it hosted the World Cup while also birthing Major League Soccer. A keystone year, a year that sowed us right into the vibrant fabric of football's illustrious tapestry.

Hence, as we stand on the cusp of 2024, marking the 30th anniversary of both these shining gems, adidas has decided to unfurl the official match ball for the MLS. This ball screams the vivacious colours of the 90s – the perfect adornment to usher in the impending season.

Picture everything nostalgic from the 90s. It's pulsing, it's bold, it's audacious and oh-so vibrant. It is a resounding reminder from the shebang year of the MLS beginnings when iconic jerseys, denim-on-denim, and electric neon walked hand in hand. That's what Major League Soccer said about the archival nature of this delightful ball.

Although there has been a visual makeover, the ball's tech aspects remain consistent. It mirrors that of the Al Rihla ball used at the much famed 2022 World Cup. Now it's not just sporting the same tech, but also a flashy new 90s-infused ensemble.

For those who are itching for this slice of nostalgia, head over to for your chance to possess the 2024 MLS official match ball. Stay tuned, keep watching, keep living the football life.
