World football governing body, FIFA have unveiled the official match-ball for the world cup holding in Russia next year.

Official 2018 FIFA World Cup match-ball According to FIFA, the ball named “Telstar 18″ gets its name from its status as the “star of television”.

The first ball to be decorated with black panels, the pattern was designed to stand out on black-and-white TVs, and changed football design forever.


“The original Telstar is one of the most iconic footballs of all time and one which changed football design forever, so developing the Telstar 18 while staying true to the original model was a really exciting challenge for us. The new panel structure and inclusion of an NFC chip has taken football innovation and design to a new level and offers both consumers and players a completely new experience,” said Roland Rommler, Category Director of Football Hardware at adidas.

“I was lucky enough to get to know this ball a bit earlier and I managed to have a try with it,” Argentina star Lionel Messi said. “I like all of it: the new design, the colours, everything.” The competition will kick off on 14 Jun 2018 and end on 15 Jul 2018.
