My Story:

The Total 90 Omni Hi-Vis version used in the 2010 FIFA World Cup Asian Qualifiers and bears the sponsor logo of Konica Minolta.  This ball must have been used by the Japanese team in one of the qualifiers held in 2009 as I bought this ball off a Japanese collector.  At the end of the qualifiers, Asia’s four automatic places were taken by Australia, Japan, North Korea and South Korea, while Bahrain lost in the play-offs with Oceania’s winner New Zealand.


The Official Story:

It will be likely impossible to find one for this unique ball used in the Asia Qualifiers.  Enough said indeed.


Technical Story:

Made in China.

FIFA Approved Code: 259.V8L
