Puma evoPOWER 1 Statement is the brand new top ball in the Puma universe and it is certainly one of a kind. It is made of 20 panels, that gives the ball larger ‘clean’ areas, less seams and therefore gives you an even better touch on the evoPOWER 1 Statement, compared to other balls.
The ball itself is made of two layers. A PU layer and an EVA layer, which provide a not foreseen power to your strikes, as well as a a reliable bounce. The aerodynamic in the ball has also been improved compared to earlier balls, in order to provide precision and a sublime travel through the air. Again, this is ensured by the two-layer construction. The rubber bladder, together with the Puma Air Lock valve, ensures good air retention and reliability.
In the end the evoPOWER is nothing short of a true match ball, which will be used both at club and league levels.
Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has confirmed that he will attend the Ballon d’Or ceremony which is supposed to be held on 13th January, 2014.
There were some rumours earlier that the Portuguese will not attend the ceremony until it was guaranteed that he would be winning the prize.
He is the most likely to get the prize due to his amazing individual statistics in 2013.
He has hit many landmarks in 2013. He hit a hat trick in Portugal’s World Cup qualifier second leg against Sweden and has scored 20 goals in 17 games in the current La Liga, more than any other player. He also completed a career 400 goals in Real Madrid’s meeting with Celta Vigo, against whom they won 3-0.
With his competitor Lionel Messi, four times Ballon d’ Or winner side lined due to injury near the end of the year, the Portuguese’s chances of winning this prestigious award have increased.
Though the last nominee Frank Ribery has earned a lot for his club Bayern Munich in terms of trophies, his individual statistics have not been better than the Portuguese winger’s.
With Cristiano Ronaldo scoring, Lionel Messi returning from injury and Frank Ribery dominating the Bundesliga, it is most likely that they only will be the nominees for this year’s Ballon d’Or too.
Adidas Argentum official match ball game in Argentina Primera Division 2014.
Thousands of people participated in the vote which gave name to Argentum, the official ball designed by Adidas for tournaments Argentine Football Association, which will be used during 2014.
The official debut will be Saturday January 11 when River Plate and Estudiantes meet for the first date of Summer Tournament in Mar del Plata.
The ball design reflects the characteristic colors of the Argentine football, in different ranges ranging from light blue to blue, with golden details that celebrate the achievements in the history of our football.
Adidas Argentum technology, with its spiral panels, is the same as was used for creating Brazuca (FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014).
This new ball features a symmetrical structure of six identical panels and a surface that provides superior grip, contact, stability and aerodynamics on the pitch.
Official match ball game in Major League Soccer in 2014 year.
The 2014 adidas MLS Match Ball, revealed this week, is based on the “Brazuca,” the official match ball of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. When the 2014 season kicks off on March 8, MLS will become the first league in the world to play the Brazuca.
The colors are meant to represent “a heart, as the ball is the heart of the soccer and MLS.”
The Brazuca boasts an innovative six-panel design and a unique surface designed to provide improved grip, touch, stability and aerodynamics. Adidas’s design process involved more than 600 players and 30 teams in 10 countries, making it “the most tested ball ever by adidas.”
In a game that’s more physically and technically demanding, the Nike Ordem football allows players to take control of the game knowing the ball will stay true.
Built for the next generation of footballers, the Nike Ordem offers optimal touch with new Fuse-Welded panels; unprecedented flight control with new aerodynamic NIKE AEROW TRAC grooves; and maximum visibility with Nike RaDaR technology to help see the ball quicker.
Controlling the ball starts with the first touch, and the Nike Ordem ball is designed and engineered for a highly sensitive feel and explosive response off the foot. The ball consists of 12 fuse-welded panels in a 3-layer casing system, and a poly-blend wrapped, free-floating carbon latex bladder.
The surface of the Nike Ordem is debossed with NIKE AEROW TRAC grooves. Nike Football’s newest proprietary innovation, these grooves are engineered to grip and channel the air to produce the truest trajectory and most consistent flight, which help ensure stability and accuaracy in mid-air.
The surface of the Nike Ordem is emblazoned with Nike’s RaDaR (Rapid Decision and Response) technology. This is a graphic pattern that creates a flickering effect as the ball rotates making it easier to see in a player’s peripheral vision and allowing for faster reactions and decision-making.
The ball featured in ‘Straight Down The Middle’ will be used by all Nike-sponsored Federations (including the ten teams who will play in Brasil next summer) in international friendly games from early 2014.
The Nike Ordem will be available at nike.com beginning December 5, 2013.

White / Night Blue / Multicolor
Who’s the greatest football team on the planet? Who will bring the biggest prize in football back home to their native soil? It all comes down to two teams, one match, and one ball. This ball. At the centre of Brazil 2014 is the Brazuca, the official match ball of the biggest sporting event on the planet, made from premium materials and rigorously tested to receive the highest FIFA ratings for feel, durability and flight.
The product of a two-and-half-year testing process involving some of the world’s biggest stars, Adidas on Tuesday night unveiled the Brazuca, the official match ball for next summer’s World Cup.
Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Lionel Messi and Iker Casillas were involved in the development of the ball, whose six identical panels, alongside a new surface structure will, according to adidas, provide “improved grip, touch, stability and aerodynamics”. The makers say it is the most tested Adidas ball of all time.
Dani Alves, Barcelona’s Brazilian star, said: “My first impression of the Brazuca is of a ball that is fantastic and we are going to have a lot of fun with it. adidas has crfeated an incredible-looking ball fitting for a tournament as big as the Fifa World Cup. Most importantly, it plays well on the ground and in the air. I’m sure all the players will love it.”
The technology incorporated into the bladder and carcass of Brazuca is the same as that used in the Tango 12 (the Euro 2012 match ball), Cafisa (2013 Confederations Cup) and the Champions League match ball but the panels and surface structure are new developments.
Adidas say the Brazuca has been tested to meet and exceed all Fifa metrics for an official match ball.
The ball, the successor to the Adidas jabulani used at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, has already been tested in competitive international matches, at the Under-20s World Cup, with a different print design, and in the friendly between Sweden and Argentina last February.
- High-end materials in the cover, backing and bladder for perfect on-field performance
- Seamless surface for a more predictable trajectory, better touch and lower water uptake
