With the football mania gripping the City, FIFA World Cup has to be a part of every conversation. 

Moreover, no football enthusiast’s wardrobe is complete without the jerseys of at least one of the teams, be it the original or a replica. 

Adidas, the official sponsor of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, presents the original jerseys of three of the teams — Spain, Germany and Argentina.  

The official match ball is called ‘Brazuca’ and means the Brazilian way of life. It has undergone a testing process for over two-and-a-half years, involving more than 600 of the world’s top players and 30 teams in ten countries across three continents. Priced at Rs 7,499, ‘Brazuca’ is the most tested ball ever by Adidas. 

Argentina footballer Lionel Messi had proudly claimed, “I’ve had the opportunity to try it out and it’s great!”

The red in the Spain jersey stands for unity while the gold flashes symbolise the current golden era of Spanish football.

The new German kit is inspired by a sense of understated brilliance and the value placed in quality and hard work while the Argentina kit takes its inspiration from the first ever half and half flag.

A few more collections for FIFA from Adidas are the Adidas Originals Farm collection (Rs 1,999 onwards), Adidas Originals FIFA Fan Wear collection (Rs 1,599 onwards) and Adidas Originals World Cup Iconics (Rs 1,999 onwards).
