    Footballs made in Pakistan to be used in FIFA World Cup 2018

    Russian Ambassador to Pakistan Alexey Dedov has said that his country will be using footballs manufactured in the Pakistani city of Sialkot for use in matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup scheduled to be held in Russia this summer, Express News reported on Sunday.

    “Pakistan is one of the most renowned countries in the world in the manufacture of sport equipment,” Dedov was quoted as saying.

    “We want to enhance our cooperation with Pakistan to other sectors as well,” he added.

    The city of Sialkot is famous all over the world for producing the finest quality of sport goods. Footballs manufactured in the country have also been a part of the footballing extravaganza since a long time.

    It's news as the footballs will be used in the biggest sporting event on the planet.

    Pakistani footballs were also used in Brazil, showing the excellence of sports products in Sailkot.

    Think they have been used in the past three/four WCs.... distinctly remember reading something about the Germany and South Africa WCs as well.

    It's Adidas again. In the UK it's prices at £30.00 from JD Sports.

    I would love to visit the sports manufacturing factories in Sailkot and buy some equipment when I go Pakistan this summer.

    Pakistani football may be languishing in the doldrums but its footballs are set to shine at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, Al Jazeera reported on Saturday.

    Russian Ambassador to Pakistan Alexey Dedov had recently confirmed that the balls to be used at this summer's spectacle — called Telstar 18 — will be manufactured in Pakistan.

    The announcement had come as little surprise as the footballs used at the tournament's last installment in 2014 were also supplied by manufacturers based in Sialkot — a city renowned world over for its thriving sports goods industry.

    "This is an honour for us, that we are going to provide footballs for the world cup once again. We are very excited to meet this challenge," Khawaja Masood, CEO of Forward Sports, the company entrusted with the task of making footballs for the big summer tournament, told Anadolu Agency.


    "Although Pakistan football team will not be participating in the forthcoming World Cup, its presence will be felt in all the matches [because of the balls]."

    According to Al Jazeera, Masood's company is a contracting manufacturer of global sports apparel giant Adidas, for whom it is currently working on a large order for the World Cup.

    Masood would not say how many footballs he has been asked to supply, but he did mention that his company makes approximately 700,000 footballs on a monthly basis.

    Husnain Cheema, president of the Pakistan Sports Goods Association, claimed that Pakistan's share in global supply of footballs in 2018 would be a staggering 10 million.

    Traditionally, Pakistani footballs used to be hand-stitched, but that changed in 2013 when Forward Sports switched to thermo bonded balls, whose panels are joined together through heat rather than stitches.

    Local manufacturers believe Pakistani companies are prising away business from their Chinese counterparts with their high-quality end products.

    "Huge football production business is being transferred from China to Pakistan because of the quality we are providing to the world," Ijaz Khokhar, who heads Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association, told Al Jazeera.

    Even in Sialkot you find many unprofessionals selling fake times, so be careful, but you will find many real Professionals selling good quality.

    If you have relatives in Pakistan you can get the same official ball for 1/10th of the price.

    I saw it on their website for £249.99 but you can buy original cheaper replica versions for around £29.99 or lower.

    The balls in previous tournaments were criticsed as being too light which meant they moved a lot in the air, probably why this is heavier which is a good thing.

    Hopefully one day we will be celebrating Pak being in the tournament. Ball's made in Pak gives me no comfort or reason to celebrate.
