The senior national soccer team, the Black Stars, has received thirty Umbro official match balls from CAF for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Before the starting of AFCON 2019, the senior national soccer team, the Black Stars have received thirty Umbro official match balls from CAF. Thirty Umbro leather footballs have been provided to each participating country to train with before AFCON. CAF has committed to the countries that it forms part of the organizing body.
At the Police Stadium in Dubai, the Black Stars have used the ball in the warm-up game against South Africa. All the 24 countries are supposed to use the ball before the commencement of the tournament on 21 June 2019.
Mitre used to produce the official match balls during previous matches. But after having wrestled the rights from mitre, Umbro, the English Sportswear and football Equipment supplier is permitted to manufacture the official balls of this tournament.
The AFCON balls have been changed from leather- bound pig’s bladder to the high- tech synthetic spheres which we can see in Africa and all over the world.
