India to Make World’s Largest Football
The largest football (soccer ball) measures 12.188 m (39 ft 11.8 in) in diameter and was made by Doha Bank (Qatar) in Doha, Qatar on 12 February 2013. The largest football (soccer ball) has a circumference of 38.30 m (125 ft 8 in) and weighs approximately 960 kg. It was displayed in the Lulu Hypermarket car park in Doha. Fifteen people had worked for four consecutive weeks to create the ball in Pakistan’s Sialkot, a major manufacturing centre of sports goods. It was created using the same materials that are used to manufacture an original soccer ball, as stipulated by FIFA guidelines.
