Back of the net!
Have you ever wondered how a football is made? If not, then look away now! If you have then take a look at this Youtube video of the production process of the official 2010 World Cup match ball ‘Jabulani’. The Adidas designed ball has recently been unveiled and is named Jabulani, an Isizulu word meaning ‘to celebrate’ (and that we will!).The ball uses Adidas ‘grip’n'groove’ technology which gives it stability in flight and improves on the ‘goose bump’ design pioneered on the 2008 European Championship ball. I had no idea the number of components, materials and process involved. Read more about it on the World Cup Blog.
