The texture is similar to what you see on the CL ball. No stitching at all, looks like its all fused and thermally bonded. Panels are fairly similar to the Jabulani.
With 100’s of hours spent on wind tunnel testing, robot kicking trials and player testing, the design, dimensions and distribution of the surface textures (seams and micro texture) have been extensively measured and optimised. This ensures the ball produces a favourable performance, in terms of dynamic and aerodynamic characteristics. It also meets all FIFA denomination programme regulations and undergone rigorous durability tests.The ball will be deployed for the first time in a competitive international when co-hosts Poland get the tournament under way in Warsaw on Friday 8 June.
For Sure, Emotions, passions, rivalries and glory will all spark. Ukraine and Poland, Let's tango!
