Qatar 2022: Made in Pakistan footballs to be used in World Cup

Made in Pakistan footballs will be used in World Cup 2022 in Qatar

Despite being banned from football by FIFA, Pakistanis have a special reason to rejoice during the upcoming football World Cup in Qatar. In another proud moment for the sports crazy nation, made in Pakistan footballs will be used in the World Cup matches, making over 200 million Pakistanis feel their presence in the event.

The Adidas Al Rihla footballs are manufactured in Sialkot, Pakistan.

The official match ball for the World Cup in Qatar was revealed by Adidas a couple of days ago.

This isn’t the first time Pakistan will have the honour of making footballs for a world cup. The ones used in the previous two editions in 2018 and 2022 were also made in Pakistan.

Until 2013, the footballs manufactured in Pakistan were hand stitched but the process changed. The company that manufactured the Adidas Telstar 18 footballs switched thermo bonded balls.

Sialkot is known as the hub of sports equipment. It is responsible for making 70% of footballs around the globe. According to a report, Pakistan shipped 38 million balls for $154 million ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
