What is so special about the FIFA World cup Ball 'Jabulani'See our main page. The primary thing is it's the first ball to be moulded in a sphere, to maximise shape retention.
Is there a cheaper version of the JabulaniYes - there's an Training ball that Adidas make for about 1/3 the price of the World Cup ball.
It has the same appearance, but this may not have all the features of the official match ball. You can buy it at Soccer.com
"Where can I buy the Jabulani Ball?"Many suppliers will be carrying it, but prices are often more reasonable at Soccer.com

Some see it as the panacea that will solve all perceived 'unfairness' in football, but as the recent Thierry Henry incident showed it's not just about crossing the line.
With the construction method used in the Jabalani ball, it would be possible to do similar to the tech embedded in the Teamgeist for previous experiments (see photo), but even with their penchant for last-minute changes to structures, this is far too late in the day to introduce what is still basically untested technology.
