    This ball is designed to keep the speed in play as it flies through the air faster than ever before in a World Cup. []

    According to FIFA's marketing director, Jean-Francois Pathy, this is a durable and high-quality football from Adidas. The top players will have a lot of fun playing with this official World Cup ball in Qatar.

    The design of the World Cup ball

    The World Cup ball is designed from the inside out using a lot of data and a lot of testing. Testing was done in the labs, wind tunnels and by the football players on the field. Al Rihla offers the highest level of accuracy and reliability during the match, in part due to the new shape of the panels and the texture of the surface.

    • CRT core: This is the core of the ball for speed, accuracy and consistency for high accuracy in shooting. There is as little air resistance as possible due to the shape.
    • Speedshell: This is the textured surface of PU with 20 new panel shapes for stability in the air. The print is also printed on the outside.

    The new design of the match ball provides significantly more speed in play and through the air. According to Adidas, this is the fastest and most accurate ball at the World Cup ever.

    Sustainability was the top priority when developing the ball for the 2022 World Cup. Al Rihla is the first ball with water-based ink and glue.

    What does the name of the ball 'Al Rihla' mean?

    Al Rihla is the name of the ball, which means 'the journey' in Arabic. The ball is inspired by the culture, architecture, the iconic boats and the flag of Qatar.

    The vibrant colors on the light background represent the host nation and the speed of the game.

    Presentation of the World Cup ball

    The World Cup ball will be presented in front of stars such as Iker Casillas and Kak√°, as well as some female soccer players from Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
