Pakistan is known as a cricketing nation but you may not know that footballs, for the upcoming FIFA World Cup-2014 in Brazil, are produced in Pakistan (159th ranked football nation).
A Pakistani company accepted challenge of producing soccer balls when a Chinese supplier Adidas failed to supply. This Pakistani firm has made balls for the German Bundesliga, French League and the Champions League.
Soccer Ball to be used in this mega event has unique design and features. In December 2013, Brazil unveiled the latest soccer ball for the FIFA World Cup 2014 - the Brazuca.
This is a moment of great pride for Pakistan that Sialkot made Soccer Balls will be used in Fifa World Cup-2014. Forward Sports (Pvt) Ltd in Sialkot will be producing 3000 footballs for the event.
