The Adidas Oceaunz ball arriving in Sydney ahead of the Women’s World Cup! (with video) by Michelle
The ninth successive football produced by adidas for the FIFA Women’s World Cup, OCEAUNZ’s design is inspired by the unique natural landscapes of the two host nations, including the mountains of New Zealand and Australia’s connection with the Indian Ocean.
The ball is a celebration of the cultures of both host countries and features designs by Aboriginal artist Chern’ee Sutton and Māori artist Fiona Collis. Its name reflects the coming together of Australia and New Zealand as host nations of the tournament.
Preparations are hotting up in Australia in readiness for the FIFA Women’s World Cup with Adidas revealing the Oceaunz ball and the new massive ball being put in place at Sydney’s Bondi Beach.. See video of the OCEAUNZ ball arriving in Sydney below.
The FIFA Women’s World Cup opening match and opening ceremony for the first-ever co-hosted women’s tournament will take place on 20 July 2023 at New Zealand’s Eden Park in Auckland/Tāmaki Makaurau. Stadium Australia in Sydney/Gadigal has been selected to host the final a month later on 20 August.
