The most technologically advanced ball in history.
A few months after the end of the Mundial, the main event in the world of sports over the last four years, Adidas is preparing for the Women's World Cup.
The sports giant has officially unveiled the ball and trophy that will be the main symbols of the upcoming championships in Australia and New Zealand.
The new official ball of the women's Mundial is equipped with a suspension system that can stabilize it in flight. It also provides increased accuracy of passes and kicks, supporting faster and more accurate play.
The ball, named Oceaunz, is the ninth in the adidas Football portfolio explicitly created for the Women's World Cup. Experts call it the most technologically advanced in history.
The ball was designed by Australian and New Zealand artists Cherny Sutton and Fiona Collis. The design is based on a council of blue and green hues with references to local landscapes, the mountains of New Zealand, and Australia's connection to the Indian Ocean.
The new Oceaunz is already available for $160 in branded stores and on the adidas website. The company said that 1 percent of the ball's sales would go to a special fund to increase women's participation in sports.
