The Evolution of The Soccer Ball

 

Our eyes have been glued to the World Cup this year and for most of the world, we're watching the games from a broadcast being streamed on our TV, computer, phone, or tablet. The history of how the soccer ball was designed is an interesting one and circles back making sure the visibility of the soccer ball is optimized for the fans watching from home. Take a look at the video below that Vox kindly put together to visualize this evolution and even dives into the design of this year's World Cup soccer ball.
