The Adidas 2023 Women’s World Cup ball is a combination of a white base with black and blue applications and eye-catching yellow detailing. The ball itself has white, blue, and green decorations on a background of pearlescent white that was inspired by the geography of Australia. There are also visual references to New Zealand’s enormous mountains and Australia’s relationship to the Indian Ocean. Both host countries’ cultural symbols and initials commemorate the union of Australia and New Zealand.
