Estadio Team Backpack
Team order for new players...the old (and GREAT) Copa Edge bag had been discontinued.
Problem 1: the ball zipper doesnt close (with only a size 4 ball).
Problem 2: with a ball in the 'ball pocket' you can barely fit shin guards & sweatchirt into the bag.
Problem 3: after only 6 month of use the fabric tore near the zipper...bag is useless.
This bag is terrible...the old Copa Edge has held up for 5 YEARS and holding strong while this one only a few months.
VERY DISAPOINTED!!! Adidas...what were you thinking?

Ball compartment doesn't close
While the quality of this pack is very good and it is roomy, when the ball (size 4) is in the mesh pocket in the front compartment the zipper won't close. The flap has to stay open allowing for other items that a child might mistakenly store there prone to falling out. This pack looks sloppy when the ball is stored inside. If the front compartment expanded I would give this pack an excellent rating. It was a team purchase and embroidered so unfortunately I cannot return it.

Worst Bag EVER
Purchased this bag at Dick's Sporting Goods late spring 2013. It was the ONLY soccer ball bag available. The side pocket zipper broke within a week of owning it! The quality of the fabric and workmanship is subpar. All zippers barely work. The ball pocket juts back into the backpack itself. Overall - the worst bag EVER. (and trust me we've owned ALOT of soccer bags)
I have 3 daughters who all play youth soccer and LOVE Adidas products. This backpack is not worthy of the name. PLEASE bring more styles and better workmanship. You have forced this "Adidas" family to search elsewhere.

Adidas should have stuck with a classic
The Estadio is a poor replacement to the classic Copa Edge model that Estadio replaced. It barely has room for my kids' regular soccer gear; even more difficult when one adds in winter training gear. I found it surprising that Adidas designed it with a ball pocket that didn't zip up like the previous version. I thought I had a defective bag until the soccer store indicated that was a design 'feature.' My three daughters who play competitively really dislike the new design and prefer to stick with their old Copa bags than 'upgrade.'
I don't require each player on my team to buy the bag because I think it is a poor design. I leave it as optional.
Wish Adidas would go back to something that was tried and true.

Like old style much better!
I would prefer you go back to your old style team backpack. We only had the backpack a month and the adjustable banding for the mesh ball pocket broke.

Best soccer bag ever !
This is bag is great! I've had it for over a year and it still looks like its brand new! It has a ton of room in it and will hold any size ball!
