Kicking Off the AFCON 2023 with Puma's 'Pokou' Ball

First off, this ball is more than just a ball. It's a tribute to the Ivorian football legend, Laurent Pokou. If you're not familiar with this guy, he's a big deal in the soccer world. Pokou, often referred to as the "man of Asmara," pulled off something incredible back in 1970. He scored not one, not two, but five goals in a single Cup of Nations match! And guess what? That record still stands strong today. So, you can see why it's only fitting that the ball is named after this football legend.

Now, let's talk design. The Puma Pokou 2023 Africa Cup of Nations football has a crisp white color as its base, but what makes it stand out is the awesome pattern. It's inspired by the AFCON 2023 logo, which gives it a unique and stylish look. The Puma logo, in classic black and white, proudly sits over this graphic design, completing the whole package.

But that's not all - there's even more exciting news. This new ball is the result of a brand-new partnership between Puma and the Confederation of African Football (CAF). This means that Puma is taking over as the official ball supplier for AFCON 2023, replacing Umbro. It's a game-changer, quite literally!
