Donation of Original Balls

    Original ball "Join the Team!"

    Sony developed a soccer ball from highly durable materials that can last a long time even in Africa's rough terrain. The ball's design expresses the idea all of us coming together with the children of Africa in a single team to turn dreams into reality.
