The start of the journey

The official adidas 2022 World Cup ball is called 'Al Rihla' - meaning the journey - to symbolise the sporting journey that those who use it take. The journey begins the moment you kick the ball, and from there, you can follow it wherever it takes you. This is a World Cup ball that reacts to your movement and your ideas, and transforms them into action. Al Rihla is more than just a ball - it's an opportunity to discover new horizons. With its high-performance speedshell panel shaped design and grooves, to enhance flight stability, along with its pearlescent white base, the official Qatar World Cup ball is as unique as the tournament itself.
