Where form meets function

The World Cup has been on our minds with the category draws just completed for South Africa. With the groups in place, we give you a preview of the World Cup’s official ball from adidas. The ‘JABULANI,’ which means ‘to celebrate’ in isiZulu, features a South African inspired design and radically new technology.  The new match ball will be available in stores starting December 4. The newly developed “Grip’n’Groove” ball technology provides an exceptionally stable flight and perfect grip under all conditions. With only eight, thermally bonded 3-D panels, which are spherically molded for the first time, the ball is perfectly round and more accurate than ever before.” We’re excited especially for the USA  vs England matches.
