As a first for the FIFA Women’s World Cup™, adidas is proud to announce that it has produced a bespoke Official Match Ball to be used in the Final at Canada 2015. The Conext15 Final Vancouver Official Match Ball bears the vibrant red of tournament hosts Canada, combined with a gold trim representing the Final match to be held on Sunday 5 July in Vancouver.
The ball itself has been designed using the same groundbreaking technology that was used so successfully in Brazuca, the Official Match Ball of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™. This technology went through a thorough testing process over a two-and-a-half-year period involving more than 600 of the world’s top players and 30 teams in ten countries across three continents, making it the most tested ball ever by adidas, which helped ensure that it is well suited for all conditions.
While the previously revealed Conext15 Official Match Ball will be used for the 51 group-stage and knockout games, the Conext15 Final Vancouver will be reserved only for the Final.
adidas is a global supporter of the development of women’s football and at the FIFA Women’s World Cup, they will provide kits to six of the competing teams, including current champions Japan and two-time winners Germany. Those teams will join Sweden, Spain, Colombia and Mexico in wearing the latest in adidas kit technology in Canada.
