The new adidas Tango 12 has some of the most intricate, interesting designs ever seen on a match ball.

adidas have created a ball that pulls together the three best aspects of football at the international level; the passion of the fans, the unity of two host nations and the rivalry between top teams.
The graphics themselves are a celebration of folk art – papercutting in particular – that is a tradition in the rural regions of both countries, with the shapes and silhouettes of the local flora and fauna inspiring the swirls and patterns.
