The official Ordem Ciento soccer ball for the Copa America Centenario is now available for fans of worldwide sport. At just a few months before the premiere of the international soccer tournament which will feature the presence of famous players like Neymar Jr., Giovanni Dos Santos, Clint Dempsey, Alexis Sanchez, among others, the soccer ball created by Nike that will debut on the field at Santa Clara, CA, for the opening match on June 3 between US and Colombia, is for sale now at Nike.com at US$160.
“We’re excited to create the official ball of the Copa America Centenario and to be able to bring Nike innovation to what promises to be an incredible spectacle,” mentioned Andrea Perez, General Manager of Nike Soccer North America.
Nike also shared three features or characteristics of the Ordem Ciento:
- A graphic red and black composition both modernizes the sport’s classic geometric design and augments it with bold sweeps of soulful color. The resulting bold effect helps players catch sight of the ball quickly, which accordingly helps enable rapid decision-making.
- Designed and engineered for a highly sensitive feel and explosive response off the foot, the ball consists of 12 fuse-welded panels in a three-layer casing system and a poly-blend wrapped, free-floating carbon latex bladder.
- The ball’s NIKE AEROW TRAC grooves, Nike Football’s newest proprietary innovation are engineered to grip and channel air to produce the truest trajectory and most consistent flight, which help ensure stability and accuracy mid-air.
