football continues to expand its size, its participation,
recognition and audience around the globe. At adidas we are firmly
dedicated to supporting women’s football and to developing
products that allow female players to further enhance their
performance. We are already looking forward to the FIFA Women’s
in China next year,“ commented Erich Stamminger, President and CEO
of the adidas brand.
Match Ball for the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ China 2007
will feature the same performance characteristics as the adidas +Teamgeist™,
the Match Ball of the FIFA World Cup 2006™. The
revolutionary 14-panel ball construction
brings down the number of three-panel touch
points by 60% (from 60 to 24) and the total length of the panel
lines is reduced by over 15% (from 400.05 cm to 333.93 cm) and will
now also provide the world’s best female players with significant
improvements in both accuracy and control.
The design is inspired by the event logo and the traditional Chinese
colors red and blue. The Match Ball of the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ China 2007 will be available in
retail from 2007 onwards.
Thank you Jacques Barralon for the above picture.
