Macam-macam Bola

Disamping mempamirkan trofi Piala Dunia, dipamirkan juga bolasepak-bolasepak rasmi yang telah digunakan pada perlawanan Piala Dunia yang lepas-lepas. Disini aku post kesemua bolasepak yang dipamirkan kat FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour. (sumber maklumat dari FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca Cola)

Telstar: Mexico, 1970
Adidas started to make soccer balls in 1963 but made the first official FIFA World Cup ball in 1970. The first ball used in the World Cup with Buckminster type of design. The first ball with 32 black and white panels. The TELSTAR was more visible on black and white televisions (1970 World Cup Mexico was the first to be broadcasted live on television).


Telstar Durlast R: West Germany, 1974
The TELSTAR was again used. Another version was the Chile Durlast ball which did not have the black panels.


Tango Durlast: Argentina, 1978
The ball design represented elegance, dynamism and passion.

Tango Espana: Spain, 1982
Adidas introduced a new ball which rubber inlaid over the seams to prevent water from seeping through. The first ball with water-resistant qualities. General wear from kicking however meant the rubber began to wear after a short time and needed to be replaced during the game.
The last genuine leather World Cup Ball.

Azteca: Mexico, 1986
The FIFA World Cup Mexico, saw the introduction of the first polyurethane coated ball which was rain-resistant. The first synthetic match ball, with good qualities on hard and wet surfaces.

Etrvsco: Italy, 1990

The first ball with an internal layer of black polyurethane foam.

Questra: USA, 1994
FIFA World Cup USA, 1994, the official ball which was enveloped in a layer of polystyrene foam. This not only made it more waterproof but allowed the ball greater acceleration when kicked. The new game ball felt softer to the touch. Improved ball control and higher velocity during play.

Tricolore: France, 1998
By 1998, FIFA World Cup France was played with a ball which sported the French red-white-blue tri-colour. A complete departure from the traditional black and white pattern. The first official FIFA World Cup coloured soccer ball. The TRICOLORE used underglass print technology with a thin layer of syntatic foam.

Fevernova: Korea/Japan, 2002
For FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan, 2002, Adidas created a new ball made up of thicker inner layers to increase the accuracy of the ball in flight.

Temgeist Germany, 2006
The revolutionary ball was designed to minimise corners and create a more homogeneous system. The new 14-panel design provides consistent performance and with fewer seams, it travels more uniformly, no matter where it is hit.

Jabulani: South Africa, 2010
JABULANI, meaning "to celebrate" is the 11th Adidas World Cup ball. The match ball for the 2010 FIFA World Cup features a completely new, ground-breaking technology. JABULANI has a futuristic texture with fantastic grip, giving players full control over the ball under all weather conditions. It also has eight, completely new thermally bonded 3-D panels, which for the first time are spherically molded, the ball is perfectly round and even more accurate than before.
