My Story:

The Adidas Competition version or species of match balls will be something that is here to stay for a while. Cheaper replicas (also labeled on the ball as ‘Match Ball Replica’) of all match balls rolled out from 2008 onwards but still as match quality as ever, with Adidas Roteiro-like panel designs and thermal bonding. This current 2013/2014 copy is the Adidas Cafusa version that is used in the Spanish Segunda and Tercera Divisions while the top league, the Spanish Primera Division is graced by the Nike Incyte.
