In this post you can see the pictures of all football which was used during the Fifa World cup from 1970 to 2010.
in all world cup different kind of football was used which are in the custody of Fifa which is the World cup football federation.

Telstar: Mexico, 1970
This Football was was used in the world cup which was organized in 1970 Mexico.Adidas started to make soccer balls in 1963 but made the first official FIFA World Cup ball in 1970. The first ball with 32 black and white panels. The TELSTAR (Star of Television) was more visible on black and white televisions (1970 FIFA World Cup Mexico™ was the first to be broadcast live on television).

Telstar Durlast R: West Germany, 1974
This football was used in the world cup of 1974 which was organized in West Germany and The above Telstar ball has the signatures of the famous 11 (Maier, Vogts, Breitner, Schwarzenbeck, Beckenbauer, Bonhof, Hoeneß, Overath, Grabowski, Müller, Hölzenbein) and even the substitute players. The players signed the ball just after they had won the world cup in Germany in 1974.Telstar made a repeat appearance with new black branding replacing the previously gold branding. Adidas introduced a new all-white version named Adidas Chile (after an all-white ball used at Chile 62). The materials and techniques used in the Telstar and Chile were identical to those used four years earlier.

Tango Durlast 1978

This Soccer ball design experienced another revolution in 1978 with the introduction of the Adidas Tango. Adidas had created what would become a ‘football design classic’. Twenty panels with ‘triads’ created the impression of 12 identical circles. For the following five FIFA World Cup tournaments, the Match Ball design was based on this design. Tango featured improved weather resistance qualities, and took its inspiration from the deep passion, emotion and elegance of Argentina.

Tango Espana: Spain, 1982
Adidas introduced a new ball which had rubber inlaid over the seams to prevent water from seeping through. The first ball with water-resistant qualities. General wear from kicking however meant the rubber began to wear after a short time and needed to be replaced during the game. The last genuine leather world cup ball.The range of models was available not only in the basic white color, but also in orangeand yellow.

Azteca: Mexico, 1986
A completely new model was developed for the World Cup in Mexico. The Azteca Mexico was a hand-sewn ball, and for the first time, syntheticmaterial, rather than leather was used to produce it. The ball consisted of an outer polyurethane wearing coat and three lower layers, whichmutually complemented one another with their different "Adicron" structures. These were intended to ensure the ball's resistance, ability toretain its shape and its waterproof properties. With its never-before-achieved performance on hard ground, at high altitude, and in wet conditions, Azteca represented a massive leap forward for the game. Its elaborately decorated design was inspired by the hosting nation’s native Aztec architecture and murals.

Etrvsco Unico -  Italy, 1990
The first ball with an internal layer of black polyurethane foam.This ball was a high-tech product which was manufactured entirely from quality synthetic fibers. The lowest covering consisted of textiles impregnated with latex for form stability and resistance to tearing, the neoprene layer made the ball water-tight and the outer skin made of polyurethane layers was used for abrasion resistance and good rebound properties. The name and intricate design took their inspiration from Italy’s magnificent, ancient history and the contributions and fine art of the Etruscans. Three Etruscan lion heads decorate each of the 20 Tango triads.

Questra: USA, 1994FIFA World Cup USA, 1994, official ball which was enveloped in a layer of polystyrene foam.The ball was manufactured from five different materials with a flexible but durable outer layer made from polyurethane.  Inspired by space technology, high velocity rockets and America’s “quest for the stars”, Questra set new performance standards. This not only made it more waterproof but allowed the ball greater acceleration when kicked. The new game ball felt softer to the touch. Improved ball control and higher velocity during play.
Tricolore : France, 1998
By 1998, FIFA World Cup France was played with a ball which sported the French red-white-blue tri-color. A complete departure from the old traditional black and white pattern.  The first official World Cup soccer ball that was in color. The TRICOLORE used underglass print technology with a thin layer of syntactic foam.The first World Cup ball in color was a revolutionary concept in ball surface design.

Fevernova : Korea Japan, 2002
Adidas's Fevernova soccer ball was the official ball of the Korea Japan, 2002 FIFA world cup.The adidas Fevernova was the first World Cup Match Ball since 1978 to break with the traditional Tango design introduced in 1978.  It is three millimeters thick (11 layers). This includes a special foam layer with tiny gas filled balloons imbedded in a syntactic foam. The foam is based on an abrasion resistant polyurethane made by Bayer called Impranil® polyurethane. The outer cover of the ball consists of a combination of special synthetic polystyrenes (polyurethane) and natural rubber. Embedded within the layers are equal sized, highly elastic, exceptionally resistant gas-filled microcells. The inner lining consists of a tightly woven network of knitted, synthetic Raschel fabric. The spongy layer has high modulus of compression, with a good elastic memory. These layers give the Fevernova TM improved rebound characteristics, which convert foot strike into ball acceleration. The outer layer of the ball is made of a particularly so that the ball can withstand exceptionally tough treatment. All of this combines to give the ball greater durability.The Fevernova TM weighs 435g.

TeamgeistGermany, Berlin and Final Balls 2006 
The adidas +Teamgeist™ Berlin, the Match Ball especially produced for the final game in Berlin on July 9th, was officially unveiled by the President of the Organizing Committee.the ball will still be round, no change there. But it will be a very special game and it is going to be played with a golden match ball that was especially designed for it.The adidas Innovation Team (a.i.t) rigorously tested the new ball for the 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany™, first under the toughest laboratory conditions possible, later also with professional players and clubs on the field of play. Scientific tests were conducted together with the Sports Technology Research Group of the University of Loughborough, one of the leading institutions of its kind worldwide. These tests confirmed that the adidas +Teamgeist™ was more round, precise and consistent than any top competitor’s match ball.

“JABULANI 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa.
