At the Final of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ on 11 July, the coveted FIFA World Cup Trophy will not be the only glittering golden object at Soccer City Stadium. adidas has unveiled the Official Match Ball for the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final, the unique gold-coloured adidas JO’BULANI version of the adidas JABULANI, the Official Match Ball of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The name JO’BULANI is a tribute to host city Johannesburg, commonly known both as “City of Gold” and Jo’burg. While the ball still features the iconic South African-inspired design of the JABULANI, the main colour of the JO’BULANI is gold.

The Golden Ball is awarded at the World Cup to the best player of the tournament. The player is chosen by a FIFA technical panel drawing up a shortlist and presenting this to the world’s media at the torunament who then pick the winner of the ultimate acolade in World Football. A silver ball and bronze ball are presented to the players deemed to be the second and third best of the tourney.
