My Story:

The Nike Geo Tiempo Legend NFHS seems to be one of those Nike match balls that we not used in any major tournaments or competitions, probably only used in youth tournaments in the United States of America.  NFHS stands for the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), which is the body that writes the rules of competition for most high school sports and activities in the United States.

This ball with the NFHS certification logo could either have been used in one of these high school tournaments or just have a recommendation from the NFHS that is certified for use in these high school soccer games.  Another interesting point is that the ball has a unique FIFA Approved code of 259.H6E that is unseen with other Nike match balls without fused panels like the Geo Merlins.  Perhaps this ball is a new technology or perhaps it was the technology of the NK Geos where it states Meets or Exceeds International Matchball Standards and Tested by SGS United Kingdom Limited, Wembley instead of a FIFA Approved logo.
