Brazuca – The Official Ball of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil
Theoretically, the official launch of the ball to be used at the World Cup is not made until is accomplished the drawing of lots of the groups in the competition. Thus, “Brazuca”, the ball used in the World Cup in Brazil next year, had to be officially presented on December 6 at Bahia, when it will be the drawing of lots of the eight groups, but the Adidas ball has already been published on the internet.
The predominant color of the ball is white on a black background that dressed the ball in shades of red, green, blue and yellow. The design is similar to the “Jabulani” ball from the 2010 World Cup, which had almost the same colors. The name “Brazuca” was chosen by the fans and is the first time when the fans choose the name of the official ball of a World Cup. Translated, the word means “the national pride of the Brazilian lifestyle”.
