Pakistan to produce FIFA World Cup footballs

When World Cup’s Chinese supplier Adidas failed to keep up with the demand of soccer balls in Rio de Janeiro, a Sialkot ball manufacturing company then stepped in and got the contract. Factory owner Khwaja Akhtar, who has made balls for the German Bundesliga, French league and the Champions League, is excited with the challenge of being a part of World Cup soccer history.

Around 3,000 Brazuca balls are expected to be manufactured and supplied by Pakistan. Along with being a source of national pride, this development will also provide the much-needed boost to our economy. Express Tribune
