The 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil ™ , from the first kick to the final whistle, starts and ends with the adidas Brazuca
. Named for a Brazilian term honoring the spirit of national pride, emotion and goodwill, the Brazuca is the 12th official World Cup
™ ball from adidas. In addition to revolutionary technology in the bladder, backing and cover for unparalleled power, swerve and control, the Brazuca broke new ground by giving fans the power to vote on the FIFA World Cup
™ ball's name for the first time. Brazilians picked "Brazuca," ahead of other locally inspired names "Bossa Nova" and "Carnavalesca." By any name, the Brazuca is sure to make soccer history.
