First-Ever Puma Africa Cup Ball Released

Update: The official 2023 Puma Africa Cup of Nations ball has now officially launched. It is called "Pokou" as a tribute to the former Ivorian international Laurent Pokou.

Following the signing of the new partnership between Puma and the Confederation of African Football (CAF), CAF also officially unveiled the first-ever Puma AFCON 2023 ball, replacing Umbro.

The AFCON ball was first showcased during the official 2023 AFCON draw, but virtually nobody noticed it, and there was also no official announcement or good pictures being released.
