Adidas has created an exclusive velvet football worth £1,172 for the world cup

Fifa World Cup mania is here and Adidas is celebrating with the launch of a memorial ball that’s covered with stunning Swarovski crystals.

Made from black velvet, this piece of material is pretty different to the footballs you’re used to seeing.

It’s gets an extra dose of luxury from the gold Russian embroidery that pays tribute to the host nation.

The embroidery also covers sparking Swarovski crystals, just in case you didn’t think this football was lavish enough before.

Even though Adidas items are popular all over the globe, this ball is only available in Moscow, so determined collectors will have to make a trip to get their hands on it and costs you £1,172 ($15,600/INR105,704).
