Topper announced the new balls that will roll on the fields of the São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro state tournaments starting in January 2013. Developed in cooperation with São Paulo Football Federation (FPF) and Rio de Janeiro Football Federation (FERJ), the KV Carbon 12 balls were created from Topper's unique technologies, and had their designs inspired in the Velocity boots.

The São Paulo tournament, known as the "Paulistão", is now in its tenth edition in partnership with Topper. Its ball has the colors of the São Paulo Football Federation – white, yellow, and red. The model has the entity's coat of arms, which is now golden and printed with a "10-Year Special Edition" seal, in addition to the coat of arms of the 20 teams participating in the competition. The Rio de Janeiro tournament ball has the colors of the Rio de Janeiro Football Federation – white, blue, and red – and the entity's coat of arms as well.

Starting in December, the new balls of the São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro tournaments will be sold at most apparel stores in Brazil.

As a sponsor of the two main state competitions in Brazil, the brand also created referee uniforms. In special colors, the polyester models have front pockets with the federations' coat of arms and Topper's logo.
