Here's the official ball for the World Cup final

No playing on the road.

ADIDAS HAVE JUST released the Brazuca Final Rio, the official match ball for the World Cup Final at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro on 13 July.

Here’s what it looks like:

While the ball’s design is more or less the same as the Brazuca — the name given to the ball to be used for all World Cup matches leading up to the final — the swirls on Brazuca Final Rio are mostly gold, black, and green, following a trend in past World Cups of the final ball being predominately gold to match the tournament’s trophy.

The colors here are also the same as those on Brazil’s uniforms. The ball goes on sale later this week starting at $160.

Here are some close-ups of the ball’s design:
