Production process of the official 2010 FIFA World Cup match ball Jabulani
For each World Cup, Adidas designs a new ball. The Adidas Tango started the craze back in 1970 and today in 2010, the Jubilani is the new kid on the block. In this video, you will see the factory process and labor involved in making these state-of-the-art match balls. They have churned out 1,760 balls a day since April 2009... you do the math.
