Adidas has revealed OCEAUNZ, the Official Match Ball of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023™. It’s the ninth successive football Adidas has produced for the FIFA Women’s World Cup and designed to cope with the demands and speed of the modern game.

OCEAUNZ’s design features a decoration of blues and greens inspired by the unique Australasian landscape, with visuals nodding to the vast mountains of New Zealand and Australia’s connection with the Indian Ocean.

The cultural markings and the initials of both host nations celebrate Australia and New Zealand coming together to host this showpiece tournament. The Australian patterns have been created by renowned local artist Chern’ee Sutton, while the Kiwi artist Fiona Collisthe designed the markings representing New Zealand.

Franziska Loeffelmann, Design Director of Football Graphics at Adidas, said: “With record viewing figures for the Women’s Euros tournament last year, the upcoming World Cup would be a massive moment for the game we love. So we’re turning up with a match ball that we’re incredibly proud of - featuring our innovative technology and a design that represents the landscape’s natural beauty. We’re hugely excited for the FIFA Women’s World Cup and to see the women’s game lifted to even further heights in two great host nations.”

Like the Official Match Ball of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, OCEAUNZ features connected ball technology, providing precise ball data, which will be made available to Video Match Officials in real-time. Combined with player position data and by applying artificial intelligence, the innovative connected ball technology contributes to FIFA’s semi-automated offside technology and offers Video Assistant Referees instantaneous information to help optimize decision-making.

• OCEAUNZ features:

The program focuses on increasing girls’ participation and the proportion of female coaches and female leaders in football for good community programs, helping to ensure that every girl participant has a female athlete role model in their community.

The FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023™ starts on July 20th, 2023, with the host nation New Zealand taking on Norway - and concludes with the final a month later, on August 20th.

OCEAUNZ will be priced at €150 and available from January 25th at Adidas’s selected retailers and online.
