JO'BulaniMooi hoor. De JABULANI is de officiële bal voor het wereldkampioenschap voetbal in Zuid Afrika. De wedstrijdbal werd vorig jaar december op fraaie wijze onthuld.

Vandaag was het tijd om het Adidas hoogstandje voor de finale op 11 juli 2010 te onthullen: The Glittering Golden JO’BULANI Ball for the Final.

At the Final of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa on 11 July 2010, the coveted FIFA World Cup Trophy will not be the only glittering golden object at Soccer City Stadium.

Adidas has unveiled the Official Match Ball for the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final, the unique gold-coloured adidas JO’BULANI version of the adidas JABULANI, the Official Match Ball of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

The name JO’BULANI is a tribute to host city Johannesburg, commonly known both as  “City of Gold” and Jo’burg. While the ball still features the iconic South African-inspired design of the JABULANI, the main colour of the JO’BULANI is gold.

“The secret of football is the ball”, as German legend Uwe Seeler so eloquently put it, and billions of fans will certainly agree with him. Football is by far the more popular sport on the planet, making the FIFA World Cup™ one of the most important sporting events around the world.

Sporting goods manufacturer adidas have been responsible for the official FIFA World Cup ball since Mexico 1970, but what did they play with before then? Different balls were used for the first and second halves of the first ever FIFA World Cup Final in 1930, since the two finalists insisted on using “their own ball”. From then onwards, the host country was allowed to supply the balls.

To begin with, the ball was generally made out of 12 parts, before an 18-piece ball was used at the 1954 FIFA World Cup Final, various versions of which were then in service until 1966.

The development of the football over the next few decades carried on with experts constantly trying to invent the “perfect ball”. The adidas era began in Mexico 40 years ago, and this was when the balls were first given a name. The “Telstar” was made up of 32 special leather panels which made it the roundest ball of its era.

After the “Durlast” came the “Tango” which was way ahead of its time in 1978 – so much so that it was used as a model for the ball at the following five FIFA World Cups. “Tango Espana” in 1982 saw the advent of the synthetic ball – still made primarily of leather, but its water-resistant polyurethane layer made it a true product of the high-tech age. “Azteca”, “Etrusco” and “Questra” were in the same mould.

The “Tricolore” in 1998 was the first coloured ball to be used, whilst the 2002 and 2006 tournaments were treated to the revolutionary “Fevernova” and “+Teamgeist” balls which were rounder, more accurate and more durable.

In South Africa, it will be the “Jabulani”, made up of a mere eight synthetic panels, which the teams will have to put in the back of the net. This is the 11th official FIFA World Cup ball which adidas has created, and this one is the most stable and accurate football of all time, proving that impossible truly is nothing!

    De voetballers van het Nederlands elftal moeten nog wennen aan de WK-bal. Veel internationals weten nog niet hoe ze de Jabulani op hoogte het beste kunnen raken.

    Ook veel buitenlandse voetballers hebben al geklaagd over de WK-bal. Nederland traint in de aanloop naar het WK zo veel mogelijk met de Jabulani van fabrikant Adidas. De oefenwedstrijd tegen Mexico wordt woensdag wegens contractuele verplichtingen echter met een bal van Nike gespeeld.

    The Science Behind The World Cup Ball

    Experts at the California Institute of Technology use a high-tech wind tunnel to prove what World Cup soccer players instinctively know – that Adidas’ new ball behaves differently than a traditional ball.
