My Story:

The Nike Mercurial Vapor is a simple looking ball that comes in two colors and this 2006 AFC version comes in white and gold on each half of the ball.  So far I have not been able to ascertain which AFC competition this ball was being used for.

The technology of the Mercurial Vapor is different from the Mercurial Veloci even though it shares the same panel design and this is assumed because of the unique FIFA Approved Code of 259.G0M.   A similar ball but of white color on each halves and gold in the middle is also used in the CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores competition.


The Official Story:

I have not seen one for this but you can use the generic Mercurial Vapor one as a good representation.


Technical Story:

Made in Pakistan.

FIFA Approved Code: 259.G0M
