Road to World Cup 2010....Jabulani!



Strolling along a major shopping complex in KL today during lunch time (yup, I was on leave...who's not anyway during year end? heheh....) I came across some cool World Cup '10 products which carried the Jabulani (which loosely means 'bringing happiness to everyone' in Swahili...correct me if I'm wrong here!) theme. I felt that I needed to get at least something to kickstart my memorabilia collection so I immediately signalled my wife to make a quick stop at a nearby Adidas outlet. My son quickly made his way to the football section and picked up a Jabulani mini-football and began playing with it, so we decided that we'd go ahead and buy it for him. Interesting enough, he's already got his collection of mini-football going...and he's not even 2 years old yet! The making of a phenomenal genius in football...heheh....


Before this I've only read about the special edition Adidas World Cup '10 Special Edition jersey commemorative boxset from their advertisements. These cost a whopping RM499 (or approx USD140) each! Each comes with an original jersey (of an Adidas-sponsored team), a captain's armband (the best feature of this special edition set if you ask me!) and Adidas Malaysia is throwing in a free Jabulani mini-football as a free gift (the same like I've bought for my son). Having said that, despite it's exorbitant price tag, I feel that I'd probably get one (or two) if I have the benjamins for it....definitely. These will rise in price as people will always cherish World Cup-related products. Most importantly, it's a beautiful memorabilia for us footie fans.....so do check it out on Adidas' official website for more details.

nice score on the Jabulani size 3 ball, I just bought the mini ball. :)

How much does it go for in KL? it retails for S$40 here.

Whooopsss....wrong info....I TOO bought the Jabulani mini-ball (article since edited)....not the size 3 ball!

I think I saw the size 5 going for RM60 (bout SGD26 I reckon....) not sure about the size 3 ball though. Those were NOT the top notch/quality ones, which I'm guessing should be within the same price range to which you have mentioned (SGD40). Funny how Adidas seems to release two different grades of football everytime...
