My Story:

Another World Cup, another ball, another new improved technology.  Welcome the Adidas Questra, official 1994 FIFA World Cup match ball that retains the Tango trigon design that now has the outer space motif, signifying the fact that the United States of America is the premier country in space exploration.  Reach for the sky, the space, the stars (Questra meant Quest for the Stars) and well the moon indeed.  What more does the World Cup bring to footballers than what outer space brings thrills and perhaps spills to the astronauts.

The finals was held at Rose Bowl, Pasedena, California and Brazil defeated Italy 3-2 in penalty kicks, the first final decided by penalty kicks after 0-0 in extra time.


The Official Story:

I have not really seen one online yet, probably too old to have something officially written and uploaded into the world wide web.  There must be something so anyone who has something, please let me know!


Technical Story:

Made in Spain.

FIFA Approved Code: 202.L5E

    They also do an ‘Engineered in Germany’ one which actually has printed around the inflating hole “Made in Morrocco”. I have a couple of them.
    The FIFA Approved logo is the ‘new’ version, so it was made after the 94 World Cup. My thoughts are that they were the first practice balls by the Morrocan factory before they made the 98 Tricolores.

      Hi Rob, I am actually interested in this variant if you are selling them. Sorry for my late reply as I was concentrating on taking pictures of my Mitre Tensiles and Revolves. They could be practice balls or balls used in some leagues after the 94 World Cup.
