About this Ball
In all World Cups prior to 1970, the National Association of the host country always requested from local suppliers sample balls which were tested and approved by the organizing committee, as well as by the referee committee. From this process one ball was determined to be the match ball for the tournament. In most cases the manufacturer delivered the appropriate number of balls free of charge to the association.
