My Story:

A new World Cup, a new football to mark the event with motifs that represent the host country of Italy.  It was the official match ball of the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy, the Euro 1992 in Sweden and the XXV Olympic Games in Barcelona.  The name and intricate design took their inspiration from Italy’s ancient history and the fine art of the Etruscans, an ancient civilization in Italy.  Three Etruscan lion heads decorate each of the 20 Tango triads.

The finals was held at Stadio Olimpico, Rome and West Germany defeated Argentina 1-0 in normal regulation time.


The Official Story:

I have not really seen one online yet, probably too old to have something officially written and uploaded into the world wide web.  There must be something so anyone who has something, please let me know!


Technical Story:

Made in Spain.

FIFA Approved Code: None
