2013 was a very unusual year for African football. The fact is that the largest tournament of the continent for the first time in history took place in an odd year. Indeed, the leaders of the African Cup of Nations decided to reschedule the tournament sequence to avoid overlapping with the Fifa World Cup.
That is why the next African Cup of Nations was played in 2013. The official ball of this tournament was a beautiful technological Katlego. So, Katlego is the name of the official ball of the 2013 African Cup of Nations. This name is associated with the Sessoto word for “success”. South Africa became the host of the tournament.
We see a light green ball, the design of which is similar to that of Adidas Tango 12. To decorate this ball, Adidas designers used national patterns and designs of various peoples of the African continent.
