Pakistan made footballs in Qatar World cup
The official World Cup 2022 match ball, called “Al-Rihla,” which is Arabic for “The Journey,” was revealed in March by Adidas in Doha. The official football supplier for the 2014 and 2018 World Cups in Brazil and Russia was Forward Sports, which also produces footballs for the German Bundesliga, French league, and Champions League.
The upcoming tournament’s soccer ball is technically known as “thermo bonded,” and it was originally used in the 2014 World Cup. Earlier, from the 1990s to 2010, Pakistan provided hand-stitched soccer balls for the majority of World Cups. Sialkot also manufactures “glued” and “hand-stitched” soccer balls.
Forward Sports is supplying footballs to the FIFA World Cup for the third time. He continued by saying that Qatari culture served as inspiration for the football’s design. Because the globe is currently shifting toward sustainability, recycled bio-based materials were used to make the footballs.
In the manufacturing process, water-based chemicals that do not contaminate the environment were employed instead of solvent chemicals. The 20-panel ball was acknowledged as one of the top footballs in the world.
