The 1994 World Cup sparked many new football stars. The incredible team of Brazil led by Romario really hit the world. The teams of Italy, Sweden and Bulgaria also flashed. Intense matches and great victories, devastating defeats and unexpected sensations unfolded in front of millions of football fans.
All of these events would not have been possible without the Adidas Questra Match Ball. This ball was created specifically for the 1994 World Cup in the USA. You can see that this is the most common Adidas ball, which consists of 32 panels. Strong threads are used to hold these elements together. The developer stated that the ball was further protected from moisture.
The ball design is inspired by the anniversary of the first ever moon landing. That is why you can see images of stars and satellites in black areas of the ball.
