The Adidas Jabulani is the official match ball for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The ball was unveiled in Cape Town, South Africa on December 4, 2009. Jabulani means “rejoice” in Zulu, and was developed at Loughborough University, UK.
The ball was also used as the match ball of 2009 FIFA Club World Cup in the United Arab Emirates, and a special version of the ball, the Jabulani Angola, was the match ball of the 2010 African Cup of Nations. This ball is also used in the 2010 Clausura Tournament of Argentina as well as the 2010 MLS season in the USA in the league’s colours of blue and green.
The new adidas +Teamgeist introduces a radically new 14-panel configuration reducing the amount of three-panel touch points by 60% and the total length of the panel lines by over 15%, forming a smooth and perfectly round exterior allowing players significant improvements in accuracy and control.
The Match Ball is designed in white and black, the traditional colors of the German national football team, and accentuated with the golden color of the FIFA World Cup trophy.
Its name, ‘+Teamgeist’, is based on the single most decisive characteristic every team needs to have in order to lift the trophy: team spirit!
