FIFA have unveiled the official match ball for the 2014 World Cup called ‘Brazuca’.

The name ‘Brazuca’ was selected through a public vote organised by the Local Organising Committee and Adidas (manufacturers of the ball) – where over one million fans participated.

The term ‘Brazuca’ is used to describe national pride in the Brazilian way of life and symbolises emotion, pride and goodwill to all.

The technical specifications of the new ball are as follow:

  • The Brazuca ball has six polyurethane panels that are bonded to keep the ball the same weight and roundness in even the thickest of rain.
  • The never-before-seen panel shape revolutionizes the game by producing faster flight speed and maintaining true roundness.
  • The bladder of the Brazuca ball is made of latex and provides the desired rebound.
  • The ball is textured and feels more like the Adidas’ Finale 13, the official UEFA Champions League ball, than the Adidas Jabulani used in South Africa four years ago.
  • The Adidas Brazuca ball, in a bold white/night blue/multicolor colorway befitting Brazil, is the most colorful ever for a FIFA World Cup.

The Brazuca was unveiled two days ahead of the official World Cup draw which will be held in the Brazilian state of Bahia on Friday.
