The adidas +Teamgeist combines tradition and innovation. The match ball is designed in white, black and gold, the colors of German football and the FIFA World Cup .
As a tribute to host Germany's greatest football moments and its traditional uniforms, the adidas design team returned to traditional black and white as the dominating colors for the FIFA World Cup Match Ball. The fine gold accents along the rounded propellers are inspired by the golden FIFA World Cup Trophy. The revolutionary new panel shape is designed to minimize corners and to create a more homogenous system in terms of performance and look. The radiant lines of the graphics surrounding the propeller shape symbolize movement and energy. Teamgeist combines everything needed to become a state-of-the-art product.
The name "Teamgeist" is based on the single most decisive characteristic every team needs to have to lift the golden trophy: team spirit! At the world's biggest sporting event, where global football stars are born and individual strength, skill and power are celebrated on the world's biggest stage, it still comes down to what the individual is willing to give to the team and what the team is able to do for its individual stars.
The best ball but pricy at around $120.
