My Story:

The Total 90 Tracer version used in the 2011 Argentina CONMEBOL Copa America. Like with all other Nike Tracers, this ball has a simple and neat design with light blue colors taken from the flag of Argentina and has this unique name Doma.  Doma seems to have come from Jineteada gaucha or doma gaucha, which is a traditional sport in the gaucho culture of Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, and southern parts of Chile. The objective is for the rider to stay on an untamed horse for a specified time, 6 to 15 seconds, depending on the category.  Like an untamed stallion, this Nike Total 90 Tracer Doma 2011 Argentina CONMEBOL Copa America match ball (to give it its full compliment) will be the wild ball that players in the tournament would have to master and control in order to be the best footballing nation in South America.

This same design was used all the way from the group stages to the finals. The 2011 final was played at the Estadio Monumental Antonio Vespucio Liberti, Buenos Aires and was contested by Uruguay and Paraguay, and was won by Uruguay 3–0 in mormal regulation time.


The Official Story:

I do not recall seeing one specifically for the CONMEBOL Copa America version of the Nike Tracer so the one for the English Premier League one is apt enough.
