Following the announcement of a new partnership with the Iraq Football Association, UMBRO are pleased to unveil the new Neo Toba – official match ball of the Iraq Premier Football League.
The design of the Neo Toba, exclusively available to the Iraq Premier League, showcases the colours of the national flag.
The graphics are based on ancient Mesopotamian symbols representing the sun and stars, which still today capture Iraq’s cultural values. The pattern is also inspired by the shape of the Euphrates and Tigris rivers as they flow through the Fertile Crescent, which is often referred to as the cradle of civilisation.
Based on our tried and tested Neo X Elite, the Neo Toba features a 10-panel construction, which delivers a greater sweet spot and a more consistent bounce. The outer casing is made from Teijin Ecopet, a material made from recycled plastic bottles, ensuring players not only do the best for their teams, but also for the planet.
A micro-dot texture has been added to the surface of the Neo Toba creating a pimpled pattern for extra grip, giving players that perfect first touch and close control of the ball.
The ball was constructed using a Dual Pressure System lining, which provides a cleaner, uninterrupted surface. The ball seams are smoother and tighter, resulting in a uniform and aerodynamic ball with faster and truer flight.
With all these technical features and having passed a rigorous testing procedure, the Neo Toba has been certified “FIFA Quality Pro” and the FQP mark is stamped on every ball, which means it is suited for use in all official professional matches.
