The official ball for the 2022 FIFA World Cup will be launched later this year. The new Adidas ball for the Qatar World Cup will be called the “Adidas Telletouch Future V” and is set to be released in June. Adidas has revealed very few details about it but has confirmed that it will feature a hybrid coating and improved durability. Ahead of that launch there will also be a limited edition release of an updated version of the Adidas Telstar, named the Telstar 19, which is likely to be used as the official ball for this year’s tournament in France. This article explains everything you need to know about the new Adidas balls coming out soon.
2018 World Cup Ball - Telstar 19
The Telstar 19 is the official ball for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. It is the 19th ball to be used in the World Cup. It is based on the original Adidas Telstar ball from the 1970 World Cup in Mexico. At the time, it was the first ball to be made with black and white panels, which were meant to represent the colors of the host nation. The 2019 version of the Telstar has been updated with a few new features. The most notable change is a new panel design, which features a contrasting colored border. The colors used are red, blue, orange and green. The pattern on the panels is inspired by Russian culture, particularly the folk art “bunting”. The panels are also made from a different material – they are now made with synthetic materials instead of the Tango synthetic leather material from the original ball.
2022 World Cup Official Ball
The Telletouch Future V ball for the Qatar World Cup is the first ball to be produced by Adidas since it took over as the official supplier for FIFA in 2019. The ball is designed to be a hybrid of old and new technologies and materials. To achieve this, Adidas used what they call “Granada technology”. This is a combination of traditional synthetic leather construction and a modern welded design. On the outside, the Telletouch Future V features a new design, the “Revolutionary Flyknit” texture. This texture is the same material used to make the knit-style shoes. This texture is engineered to be more durable and better able to withstand the wear and tear of modern football.
Updated Adidas Brazuca
The Adidas Brazuca was the official ball for the FIFA World Cup in Brazil in 2014. It was the first time Adidas produced a ball with its revolutionary “Brazuca” technology. The technology aimed to create a more accurate and consistent ball. Since then, Adidas has continued to evolve its ball designs and materials. The Brazuca has been updated with a new synthetic material, the same type used on the Telletouch balls. On the outside, the ball features a new design inspired by the urban culture. The “Brazuca” name is still visible on the ball but in a bold graffiti-style font.
What’s different with the new balls?
The main improvements with the new Adidas balls are in the materials used. The new synthetic materials are stronger, more durable and able to withstand the wear and tear of modern football much better than the materials used for the original balls. The new materials also allow the ball to be more accurately engineered to the specific requirements of modern football, such as ball speed and how the ball moves in the air. The new materials and design also help the balls look and feel more premium. They are designed to have a more consistent feel, regardless of the weather conditions or playing surface. The new balls are also designed to be more environmentally friendly. For example, the new Adidas Brazuca ball is made with 30% recycled materials.
Telstar 19 and Telletouch Future V are the official balls for the 2022 World Cup. The new Adidas balls have been designed to be more durable, consistent, and accurate. They also feature an updated design and materials. You won’t be able to buy the new Adidas balls until June when they are officially released.
At this stage, we can only guess what the new ball will look like. The Telstar 18 is a much bolder design than the Tréner and the new ball will likely be similarly bold. We know that it will be used at the 2022 World Cup and that it will be endorsed by FIFA. Beyond that, it’s anyone’s guess. What’s certain is that it will be a new design that departs significantly from the Telstar 18, as well as any other recent Adidas balls. It’s going to be a very different ball to the one that we’re seen in Russia
this year. And that makes it an eagerly awaited addition to the game.
