Molten Acentec AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 Official Match Ball

This is the Molten Acentec AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 Ball.



Based on the high-end Molten "Vantaggio 5000 Premier" soccer ball, the Molten Acentec AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 Official Match Ball boasts the colors of the logo of the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 - white, green, red and black. The ball comes with the official logo of the tournament and various other bradnings.



Tech-wise, the Molten Acentec AFC Asian Cup ball is the same as the Vantaggio 500 Premier. The ball comes with Molten’s unique thermal bonding technology for excellent sphericity and ultra-low water absorption. The dimples on the surface reduce wobbles in the ball trajectory that result from air resistance when the ball is in the air.

It is a significant partnership as it not only showcases Asia’s leading competitions but also one of the world’s leading Asian ball manufacturers.
