We’re very proud to announce that The Ball for 2010 will be made by Alive & Kicking in South Africa. This amazing project makes cheap, tough, repairable footballs, netballs and volleyballs, using African skills and African leather. Each carries a message about HIV/AIDS and malaria.
The Ball 2010 will be “an African ball made for the poorest African communities – the very embodiment of development through football in Africa.” says James Flecker of Alive & Kicking.
