Rain or shine, remember your sunglasses the next time you go to a CONCACAF Champions League game.

The new match ball that was introduced Wednesday in Miami contains neon shades of pink, orange, green and yellow.

You might even need to watch the games at home because we've been squinting at the picture.

The New York Red Bulls, Portland Timbers and Vancouver Whitecaps are among the MLS teams that will have to kick this thing around. 

The ball has been used in different pro leagues already, but not quite in such a fluorescent sense (so far).

Match play begins August 2 in Trinidad and Tobago and Mexico, two countries that just sunk their budgets manufacturing eyewear for their populations. 

Thanks, Nike.
