16 teams will use the Jabulani Angola ball as they battle to become champions of Africa from January 10th to 31st in Angola.
Inspired by the yellow, red and black Angolan flag, the colourful and mystical design of the Jabulani Angola reflects adidas’ commitment to and passion for African football. Angolan pride in its culture and heritage is strongly represented through this vibrant ball which is sure to be used in some inspiring football moments this coming January.
Featuring the ground-breaking Grip’n’Grove profile, the Jabulani Angola will provide the best African players with a stable ball flight and perfect grip under all conditions.
Comprising of only 8 thermal bonded 3-D panels, which for the first time are spherically moulded, the Jabulani Angola ball is perfectly round and even more accurate than ever before.
“After the spectacular success of the first ever official ball for CAF, the “Wawa Aba” in Ghana 2008, we are proud to present to you the new official ball for African football for the next two years.”
“I have confident that the Jabulani Angola will be the perfect icon for the 2010 Orange Africa Cup of Nations.” says Amr Shaheen, Marekting Director of CAF.
While Zambian football legend, Kalusha Bwalya did not hide his admiration towards the new African ball “I envy the today’s generation of African football players because they have the opportunity to play with such a high tech ball that would help them scoring more goal, not to mention that it being produced by the best sports manufacturer in the world”
