Adidas Cafusa Confederations Cup 2013 Match Ball

The name and design of the official match ball for the FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil 2013 was unveiled at the FIFA Draw show and is available here.

Three symbols of Brazilian culture: Carnival, Football, and Samba have been combined to create the adidas Cafusa.

Created by the same product team who designed the hugely successful Tango 12, the adidas Cafusa combines proven high performance technology with a locally relevant aesthetic. The name and vibrant colour scheme reflects the national identity with a particular focus the on "Southern Cross" constellation represented in the Brazilian flag.

"Unveiling the Official Ball of FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil 2013 is a big moment for us. Brazilians are passionate about football and we wanted to deliver an inspirational ball for this competition, which serves as an example of joy for such a huge event such as the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™. We are very pleased with the adidas Cafusa, the final product has strong Brazilian elements in place throughout the design," said Rodrigo Messias, Director of the Project 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™.

To showcase the new football to all Brazilians there will be an exhibition of 10 giant balls, each two meters in diameter, which will travel across the country until the end of June 2013. The balls will begin their journey in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro before heading on to the other host cities of the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 - Recife, Fortaleza, Salvador, Brasília and Belo Horizonte.

Alongside this exhibition adidas will also be providing the opportunity for locals to test out the Cafusa alongside the latest version of their adizero f50® football boot – one of the lightest boots on the market at only 165grams per shoe. The boot, designed to make players faster than ever before, will launch across the world in a colour scheme of Vivid Yellow and Green Zest to match the Cafusa and the colours of Brazil. The ball and boots are available now at adidas stores, www.adidas.com, and at general sports retailers.

The adidas Cafusa will make its on pitch debut at the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan which takes place between December 6th and December 16th.

Is it me? These new adidas designed balls don't seem as round as a 32 panel ball.

Name makes me think that it's either a) Cafu's ball or b) named after a US themed Cafe.

Am watching the confed cup and i realise that this ball is too light. The played style changed: quick, less precise, and more is given to power and chance. It feels like I am watching a flipper match. You can see that players struggle more to control the ball and as a consequence those nice delicate touches are completely cut out of the match. On the contrary the game is much quicker and probably more goals are scored. However in my opinion the quality of the game has gone down. Not as beautiful
