Adidas Cafusa is the official ball of the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup. As you know, the Confederations Cup is a dress rehearsal for the World Cup. Brazil hosted the 2014 World Cup, so the 2013 Confederations Cup was also held in this South American country. Adidas loves to use national landmarks in ball designs. And the 2013 Confederations Cup Official Ball was no exception.
So, we see a stylish, technological ball that has the colors of the Brazilian flag on a white aristocratic background. The name of the ball comes from the three most popular things in Brazil: Carnival, Football and Samba.
In technical terms, you can see the full compliance of Adidas Tango 12. This is a similar construction, which consists of rouded panels, connected by heat-sealing. By the way, this is not the first time that the Adidas Tango 12 design has been used. You can also think of cool balls like Adidas Torfabrik 2013/2014 and Adidas Europa League 2013/14.
Also Adidas Cafusa is the official ball of the FIFA Club World Cup 2012. This ball is particularly lucky for Brazil, as the Brazilian national team won the 2013 Confederations Cup. Corinthians (Brazil) also won the 2012 FIFA Club World Cup.
