Nike introduces the Official Match Ball of the 2016 Copa America Centenario final!

Nike Ordem CientoWhen Alexis Sanchez (Chile) and Gonzalo Higuaín (Argentina) face off for the 2016 COPA America Centenario title on Sunday, June 26, they’ll play with a special-edition ball befitting the world’s oldest international football tournament.

The Nike Ordem Campeon celebrates the historic moment — both the contest’s centennial anniversary and the first time the COPA America has been hosted by the United States — with a graphic that modernizes football’s classic geometric design and embellishes it with bold sweeps of gold.

Throughout its history, the Copa America has served up high doses of drama, with each competition fueling the mythology of the world’s oldest international soccer championship – be it final matches featuring four periods of extra-time or a hattrick of penalty-kick misses.

This year’s special-edition contest has upheld the theatrical tradition, with the tournament augmenting its standard 12-team line up to 16 because it is comprising North and South American Football federations, plus a host of invited teams.
