adidas World Cup 2010 Official Match Soccer Ball
Jabulani means to celebrate in Zulu, one of the 11 languages of South Africa, and the design of the Jabulani has 11 colors to honor those 11 languages, in addition to the 11 communities of South Africa and and the 11 players on a team. The 11 colors also honor the fact that this is adidas' 11th FIFA World Cup ball. Constructed with eight new thermally bonded, spherically shaped, 3 D EVA and TPU panels, the Jabulani is perfectly round and has been equipped with a new Grip'n'Groove technology. Grip'n'Groove is a textured treatment that ensures the Jabulani flies straight and true. The Jabulani is designed for never before seen power, swerve and control. It's a ball truly worthy of the best in the game.
