The United States has often been the little brother to European soccer. The MLS has tried adapting the style of play from some top European clubs or even more recently the MLS has tried signing some bigger name European players. They aren't quite to the level of the EPL, but the MLS is definitely on the rise. One way you can see that the MLS is on the rise is with this ball! The adidas MLS 2016 Competition Match Ball is definitely a top notch ball.
