Adidas creates a new ball for each global competition. The word Jabulani means “to rejoice or celebrate” in Zulu, one of the eleven official languages of the Republic of South Africa. This ball features eleven different colors that reflect the diversity of the Rainbow Nation. These balls are manufactured in China and have a retail price of US $150. Replica models cost US $25.
