My Story:

This is one of the 2009 Nigeria FIFA Under-17 World Cup match used balls and it comes with the tournament logo.  The look at the surface texture and panels of the ball seem to show that it belongs to the same genre as the Adidas Teamgeist 2, Europass and  Terrapass with the FIFA Approved code of 202.A6W.  However a look at the designs of the Kopanya and Teamgeist 3 glider probably gives you a suspicion that this was supposed to be a Teamgeist 3 kind of ball but Adidas must have pulled the plug on it eventually.  The Kopanya is also used in the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup held in South Africa and the 2009 FIFA Under-20 World Cup held in Egypt.

The finals was held at the National Stadium, Abuja, Nigeria, and Switzerland defeated Nigeria 1-0 in normal regulation time.

 

The Official Story:

The version from the Adidas Kopanya 2009 South Africa FIFA Confederations Cup that is available on general retail should suffice.

 

Technical Story:

Made in Thailand.

FIFA Approved Code: 202.A6W
