Through a series of exclusive drops, 12 Pentagons will release single editions of balls straight from the research & development lab. In our first year of sharing football-making content, our videos gained over 100 million views, and we grew an audience of over 750,000 followers. 12 Pentagons aims to become a global luxury lifestyle brand that embraces its roots in the hardworking city of St. Louis, the first football (soccer) capital of America.
