As part of Mexican soccer’s annual week long meeting, where the competition schedule was announced, the groups were set for the domestic cup competition and the draft will be held, the official Apertura 2014 match ball was introduced: the Voit Aspid.
The Voit Aspid will be the official ball of Liga MX, the Liga de Ascenso, and the Copa MX, and is certified and evaluated by FIFA.
Its features include:
- Dynamic Attenuation, with four layers that ensure stability in its trajectory;
- Interior balance, which reduces deformation or loss of shape and conserves the initial force of impact;
- Geometria GEOSMART 20, a new design of geometric shapes that balances the ball’s center of gravity;
- And a new exterior material, DR-FLUX, which consists of special textured patterning designed so that the ball has better performance both on natural grass and on artificial turf (such as on Tijuana’s field in the Estadio Caliente).
