We've seen the official matchball for the World Cup, but for Sunday's epic Finale adidas have gone one stage further and produced the official matchball for the Final of the 2010 FIFA
Check out the Jo'Bulani Final football, along with some of the gear English referee Howard Webb will be sporting as he leads the teams out in Johannesburg...
This will be the second installment of a specific World Cup Final football from the official matchball suppliers adidas, who presented the golden TeamGeist Berlin for the last Final in, you've guessed it, Berlin.
adidas have been a FIFA partner for over 40 years, and are still the official supplier to the tournament. So as well as the official match ball, adidas kit out each of the FIFA appointed referees for the World Cup, representing nations from all corners of the globe.
Representing England is Premier League official Howard Webb, who has already one major final under his belt in last season's Champions League Final between Bayern Munich and Inter. For the referees and officials in South Africa, adidas have customised their World Cup colourway adiPure III football boots:
These adiPure III's have been worn by all the referees throughout the tournament, and feature three silver stripes as opposed to the official WC colourway's Sun Yellow versions. Also added to the outside of each boot is the inscription "2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa".
This year's Final ball, named Jo'Bulani, will feature many of the same features and technology as the much lauded Jabulani football revealed last year. The Grip'n'Groove profile remains, but the major difference is the addition of 11 golden threads. The Eleven represents the 11
players in every team, the 11 official languages of South Africa
and the 11
South African tribes that make the country one of the most
ethnologically diverse countries on the African continent.
developed “Grip’n’Groove” profile intended to provide the players with "an
exceptional ball flight and perfect grip under all conditions".
The new name of the ball is inspired from the Final's destination - Johannesburg - or Jo'burg as it is commonly known. Hence Jabulani + Jo'burg = Jo'Bulani!
The new Jo'Bulani football is available now, costing around £80 GBP for the official match ball version. There will also be some similarly themed takedown versions, including a Glide and Replique, available from the best football retailers.
You can still get the official Jabulani matchball as well, should you want to start living your own World Cup dreams!
