Yes, in theory: the number of panels a ball has determines the movement and spin a player can create due to reduced drag from less edges and vertices. The size and weight of an official ball must comply with FIFA guidelines. The current World Cup match ball (Adidas' Jabulani) has 8 panels, none of which are hexagons or pentagons. The materials used are also in constant evolution: the Jabulani is not made of traditional leather, but of textured ethylene-vynil acetate (EVA).
