Soccer is one of the most popular sports in Japan, both in terms of spectating and participation, though in the recent times, futsal has creeped up against its older brother. In short, it is a smaller version of soccer, which is played in a smaller field with smaller teams. It is a faster paced sport, and its popularity is reflected by brands such as OriginalFake producing its own balls for the sport. The XP Futsal Ball features the trademark XX pattern graphics on the exterior, with the blue version sold exclusively at the OriginalFake flagship store in Aoyama, Japan. Both versions will launch on Wednesday, July 18, 2012 at OriginalFake stockists Japan-wide.
