This beauty is the only football worthy to be used by the world’s elite players for next week’s FIFA World Cup 2014 tournament. Find out why.
What: adidas Brazuca 2014 FIFA World Cup Official Match Ball
Why: Whether to keep or to kick, you can’t miss out on owning the FIFA World Cup’s official match ball; the same type of ball that will be used by the world’s best players at the upcoming tournament in Brazil. The adidas Brazuca underwent two and a half years of development and testing to ensure perfect on-field performance. In fact, it is made with 6 panels of premium polyurethane (instead of the usual 32) that has been bonded for reduced water absorption and perfect roundness.
What else: Footballs are serious business; the match ball used in the 2010 World Cup was criticized by players and managers for its erratic, unpredictable flight that tended to slow down suddenly in mid-air. Researchers in Japan have extensively tested the Brazuca and concluded that it is aerodynamically consistent. No complaints this time, hopefully!
Gimme: The adidas Brazuca Official Match Ball retails for S$189 and is available at the adidas online store and other sporting goods retailers.
