The new ball for the 2018 Russia World Cup has been officially launched by adidas.

According to FIFA website, the manufacturers designed and remodeled the footballs that were utilized during the 1970 and 1974 World Cups in Mexico and Germany, respectively, and came up with the new ball titled ‘Telstar 18’.

It is a reinvention of a classic model with a brand new panel design and the latest technology, in an exciting re-imagining, which pays homage to the first-ever adidas World Cup ball. The Telstar 18 evokes unforgettable memories of the 1970 FIFA World Cup - and of legends like Pelé, Gerd Müller, Giacinto Facchetti, Pedro Rocha and Bobby Moore - and will feed the dreams of those who will play for football’s most coveted prize in Russia next year.

Lionel Messi, Zinedine Zidane, Alessandro Del Piero, Kaka and Xabi Alonso were among the football legends that participated in the presentation ceremony.
