View a Gallery of Soccer Balls Used by FIFA Since the First World Cup in 1930

Below is a gallery of every soccer ball used in the World Cup since its founding in 1930. Beginning with leather balls throughout the ’30’s then transitioning to balls with seams in 1938 and eventually landing on the iconic black and white balls in 1970. Each is different, representing the time and culture when the Cup was being held and gaining more personality the longer the Cup has gone on.
