Umbro Toghu - 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Official Match Ball

The new Umbro 2021 AFCON official match ball is named 'Toghu', the traditional outfit that is very popular in Cameroon. A 'Toghu' was initially designed for Royalty in the North West region of Cameroon but has since been adopted by Cameroonians as an outfit for special occasions.

The Umbro 'Toghu' soccer ball comes with a multi-colored and finely embroidered design inspired by traditional Toghu outfits.

Just as the 2019 Umbro AFCON ball, the new 2022 AFCON ball appears to be based on the now old Umbro Neo Pro ball model.
