Since 1970, Adidas has been designing the soccer balls for the FIFA World Cup. Our question: what does mathematics say about these designs?

First, we need to understand the five Platonic solids: the tetrahedron, the cube, the octahedron, the dodecahedron, and the icosahedron. Each of these solids have congruent faces. For example, the cube has six square faces and each corner is met by three edges, while the icosahedron has 20 triangular faces and each corner connects 5 edges. The structure of the World Cup balls are each based on one of these Platonic solids.

The Telstar:

The Telstar, introduced in 1970, is the classical design with its 12 black pentagons and 20 white hexagons. It’s not a Platonic solid, but its one step away. Start with an icosahedron. Pick a corner, divide its connecting edges into thirds, mark a pentagon, and then cut off the corner. Doing this to each of the 12 corners creates 12 new pentagonal faces. Pumping it up produces the Telstar.

Now look at the next 8 World Cup balls — the Telstar Durlast, the Tango, the Tango Espana, the Azteca, the Etrusco Unico, the Questra, the Tricolore, and the Fevernova. Although they have different printed patterns, the physical panels with 20 hexagons and 12 pentagons is the same as the 1970 Telstar.

The Teamgeist:

This all changed with the 2006 Team Geist in Germany. It has 6 dumbbell-shaped panels and 8 propeller shapes. Unlike the Telstar’s panels which are stitched together, the Teamgeist’s panels are thermally bonded. This ball received criticism because of its erratic flight. How is the Teamgeist made from a Platonic solid? Start with a cube. Like before, pick a corner, divide the connecting edges into thirds, and then slice off the corners. Doing this to each corner produces the truncated cube with 6 octagons and 8 triangles. To get the Teamgeist, identify each octagon with a dumbbell-shaped panel and each triangle with a propeller shape. Reshaping the panels and inflating it produces the Teamgeist. And don’t be fooled by a fake Teamgeist which prints the Teamgeist pattern onto a Telstar design.

The Jabulani:

In 2010, the South African World Cup introduced the Jabulani. While a casual look suggests that there are many panels, there are really only 8: 4 round panels and 4 propellers. This ball was also criticized for “beach ball”-like flight, possibly due to its shallow seams. For its design, start with the tetrahedron and truncate the four corners to produce four triangular faces and four hexagonal faces. Identifying the triangles with the ovals and the hexagons with the propellers, then reshaping produces the Jabulani.

The Brazuca:

This brings us to the 2014 Brazuca debuted in Brazil. Named by the fans, this ball has only six panels, the fewest yet. These six propellers correspond to the faces of a cube. The propellers don’t overlap just like the faces of the cube don’t overlap. You can also see this connection from the seams; three seams meet at a corner just like three edges meet at each corner of a cube. Reshaping the squares into the propellers produces the Brazuca.
