Adidas introduced its lastest creation, the Brazuca (it means national pride) “The Brazuca is the most tested ball we’ve created,” says Zea. His team spent two and a half years developing it, not just to meet the specs of FIFA, the sport’s governing body but its own standards, such as no added weight when wet.
This new soccer ball will be used during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Stars like Lionel Messi played around with the Brazuca for an hour at practice. Adidas has been making balls for the World Cup for 43 years
