Adidas Equipment Icon Official Match Ball of the 1999 Women's World Cup

Engineered to the same specifications as the Equipment Tricolore (the Official Match ball of World Cup France 98'), the Adidas Equipment Icon was FIFA's Official Matchball for the Women’s World Cup in 1999. This ball was the first one designed specifically for the Women's World Cup.  Unlike traditional soccer balls, the Equipment Icon uses the same syntactic foam technology which debuted in the Equipment Tricolor at France 98'. According to Adidas, "syntactic foam's tight, uniform matrix of gas-filled micro-balloons distributes energy more equally, enabling more rebound characteristics that make the ball faster and more accurate off the foot".  The Equipment Icon's design features colorful "icons" from the eight venue cities of Women’s World Cup 99' including: San Jose, San Francisco, Portland (OR.), Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Boston, and Washington D.C.  These icons are integrated into the Adidas "Tango" pattern, with an overlay of stars in honor of the US flag.  FIFA approved. The Equipment Icon is only the second ball to feature the Adidas Equipment logo.
