"ADIDAS FEVERNOVA" BALÓN OFICIAL DEL MUNDIAL KOREA-JAPÓN DE 2002.
"ADIDAS FEVERNOVA" OFFICIAL MATCHBALL 2002 KOREA-JAPAN WORLD CUP 2002.

El Fevernova fue el primer balón oficial del Mundial que se alejó del diseño tradicional imperante desde la aparición del Tango en 1978. Su aspecto llamativo y el empleo del color se basaban íntegramente en las culturas asiáticas. Incluía una capa de espuma refinada para dar al balón mejores características de rendimiento y una carcasa tejida de tres capas que permitía conseguir con cada disparo una trayectoria de vuelo más precisa y predecible. Entre el balón Tricolore de Francia 1998 y este hay una diferencia, la superficie del balón tiene un "dibujo" con cientos de celdas circulares. Mas adelante se fabricarían mas balones con este detalle.
The Fevernova was the first official ball of the World Cup which distanced itself from the traditional design which had become predominant since the appearance of the Tango in 1978. Its outstanding aspect and the use of colour were essentially based on Asian cultures. It included a refined layer of foam to give the ball better performance characteristics and a structure made up of three layers enabling the footballer to give a more precise and predictable shot. Between the Tricolore ball of France 1998 and this one there is a difference. The surface of the ball has a "pattern" with hundreds of circular cells. Later on, more balls would be manufactured with this feature.
