The Adidas Fevernova was the official match ball of 2002 FIFA World Cup in South Korea and Japan, manufactured by Adidas. Its styling marked a departure from the traditional Tango ball design.

History[edit]

The Fevernova's colouring parted from the Tango's style of three-pointed shapes connecting each hexagon, instead introducing a different, triangle-like shape on four hexagons. This colourful and revolutionary look and colour usage was entirely based on Asian culture (the dark gold trigon resembles a tomoe and the red streaks on its angles resemble calligraphy brush strokes). It also featured a refined syntactic foam layer, to give the ball superior performance characteristics, and a three-layer knitted chassis, allowing for a more precise and predictable flight path.[1]

This ball was notoriously criticised for being too light, yet some spectacular goals were scored with it during the tournament. The ball was also blamed for a number of upsets that happened in the knockout stages.

A new version of the ball was manufactured for the 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup.[2]

In the 2004 African Cup of Nations in Tunisia, did not create a ball for the tournament but Vivernova was agreed to play in the matches.
