CAF – Football News
Adidas took the opportunity of the draw for the MTN Africa Cup of Nations 2008 in Ghana to present the first official matchball for the cup, the adidas “wawa aba”. In addition to the matchballs for the FIFA World Cup™ and the UEFA European Championship, adidas now also supplies the ball for the championship on the African continent. The adidas “wawa aba” combines tradition and innovation and stands out due to its exceptionally strong African colouring. The ball also features the colours of the Ghanaian flag and complements the design with historical and cultural elements of Africa. Just like the +Teamgeist™ official matchball of the 2006 FIFA World Cup™, the adidas “wawa aba” is made of 14 panels produced with revolutionary thermo-bonding technology. Its flight properties feature perfect characteristics which enable the player to control the ball optimally and to shoot with incredible precision.
