New World Cup ball ‘Brazuca’ unveiled

The new ball for next year’s World Cup called the “Brazuca,” in honour of Brazil, of course was unveiled at a ceremony on Tuesday in Rio de Janeiro. The word “Brazuca” has a double meaning, used as a term for Brazilians living abroad including its many footballers but also as slang used to describe national pride.

Manufacturer Adidas says the ball offers “breakthrough innovation” featuring what it calls a “revolutionary six—panel design.” The ball is decorated with a ribbon design in shades of blue, gold and green, which Adidas says symbolizes the traditional “wish bracelets” worn in Brazil.
