SIALKOT: Pakistan Forward Sports (Pvt) Ltd has got the contract after a long time to provide footballs in the FIFA World Cup 2014 which will be held on June in Brazil.
Khwaja Masood Akhtar, owner and CEO of Forward Sports said that it was the long-dream for us which we got after many years.
“Forward Sports is one of the major suppliers for Adidas and the official brand sponsor for the 2014 games,” he said.
Akhtar’s factory has made the official ball for Europe’s UEFA Champions League, the Africa Cup of Nations and the German Bundesliga.
For the last soccer World Cup 2012, the official ball was exclusively manufactured by a factory in Shenzhen, China.
For this year, Akhtar’s factory is also making the official ball, which has been named the Brazuca in reference to the host nation of this year’s World Cup, Brazil.
