Today, adidas and the Confederation of African Football (CAF) presented Marhaba, the Official Match Ball for the Orange Africa Cup of Nations, Equatorial Guinea 2015.
Taking inspiration from the intricate history of the tournament and its famously passionate fans, Marhaba was designed in collaboration with the Confederation of African Football.
The distinctive gold and blue colouring on the ball represents the contrasting landscapes of the continent, from the Sahara desert to the bright azure sky.
The ball will be officially presented during the tournament draw in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea on Wednesday 3rd December by members of the Confederation of African Football and Local Organising Committee.
Marhaba, like its counterparts in regional and international tournaments, has gone through a thorough testing process to make sure that it is suited to the playing conditions during the tournament.
The technology incorporated into the bladder and carcass of Marhaba is identical to the Brazuca (2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil) and the ever popular UEFA Champions League™ Official Match Ball."Marhaba", the Official Match Ball for the Orange Africa Cup of Nations, Equatorial Guinea 2015, is available to buy at selected adidas retail outlets and associated stockists from Monday 1st December.
