Hi, my name is Jabulani, I'm the official ball for the 2010 WC

Again this year it's Adidas who has designed the official ball... JABULANI !

It means ''to celebrate'' in the Bantu language isiZulu.


There are 11 different colors on the ball because:
- There are 11 players on the pitch
- It's the 11th official match ball
- There are 11 different tribes in South Africa with 11 different languages

'' Adidas said that its new Grip’n’Groove technology enabled a more stable flight and the goosebumps on the ball’s surface provided players with a perfect grip under all conditions. With only eight thermally bonded panels, which are spherically molded, the ball is perfectly round and more accurate. ''
