Jabulani Angola is the official ball of the 2010 African Cup of Nations. 2010 was marked by the appearance of a new ball, Jabulani. After the successful presentation of this ball at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, many leagues and tournaments have received unique variations of this ball. For example, the strongest league of the North American continent received MLS Jabulani and MLS Jabulani Final.
The brightest and most spectacular African tournament also did not stand aside, because in 2010 Adidas presented a new Jabulani Angola specifically for this tournament. The design of this ball is associated with the national flag of Angola, which hosted the 2010 African Cup of Nations.
Like the first version of Jabulani, this ball consists of eight panels that are heat-sealed. The surface of Jabulani Angola is improved with Grip’n’Grove technology. It looks like a multitude of grooves on the outer layer of the ball for maximum control in any weather.
