See The Official Tournament Ball For The Upcoming World Cup 2022 In Qatar

With 236 days to go until the 2022 World Cup gets under way in Qatar – and the draw set to take place on Friday – another landmark moment in the countdown to football’s biggest tournament took place on Wednesday.
The official match ball was unveiled – and it “travels faster in flight than any other World Cup ball” in history, according to Adidas, who have produced 14 successive balls for the tournament.

Named the ‘Al Rihla’, which translates as “the journey” in Arabic, the design is said to also provide “the highest level of accuracy”.

“The game is getting faster and, as it speeds up, accuracy and flight stability becomes critically important,” said design director Franziska Loeffelmann.

“The new design allows the ball to maintain its speed significantly higher as it journeys through the air.”
