This is the Adidas 2016-2017 UEFA World Cup Russia 2018 Qualifiers football.
The technology behind the ball hasn’t changed since Adidas’ Brazuca ball used during the last World Cup finals in Brazil two years ago. As with every ball in the past twenty years, focus is entirely on the flight of the ball, encouraging attacking players to strike at goal.
With six panels and no visible seams, Adidas is satisfied that, at the moment, it is the truest flight a football can follow at present.
The graphic design on the ball focusses on the fan stadium experience, picturing the scene as supporters enter the stadium, in red, black and grey.
