FIFA and adidas unveil Official Match Ball for France 2019 knockout phase

FIFA Women's World Cup France 2019

Introducing the Tricolore 19: the Official Match Ball for the Knockout phase of the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™.

The newly designed Tricolore 19, an update of the Conext 19 played in the Group Stages, features a mono-panel aesthetic displaying a blue glitched graphic. The refreshed design is inspired by, and named after, the adidas Tricolore created for the 1998 FIFA World Cup™. It was this year that France last held the competition, with the Host Country also taking the trophy, becoming victors for the first time and on home soil.

The ball will be used for the first time on Saturday during the first Round of 16 matches of the competition, and be available to purchase via adidas retail channels.
