Official match ball for FIFA World Cup semi-finals and final revealed

The Official Match Ball for the semi-finals and final of the 2022 Fifa World Cup has been released.

Adidas revealed the ball, named ‘Al Hilm’ (‘The Dream’ in Arabic), following the Official Match Ball of the group stages (‘Al Rihla’ or ‘The Journey’).

Both balls have the same technology, engineered to travel faster than any other World Cup ball.

The design is set on a textured gold base colour with a triangular pattern – taking inspiration from the deserts of Qatar and the region, the colour of the Fifa World Cup trophy, and the pattern of the Qatar flag. Bold red accents adorn the ball, reflecting both the generative architecture of Qatar, and the country’s flag.
