From 12 June to 13 July, football fans experienced one of the greatest FIFA World Cups of all time. During the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, FIFA.com gave Club members the chance to claim a piece of the incredible tournament with the Kick Off Ball Contest. Every matchday in Brazil, we published a quiz for each match. All Club members that guessed all three quiz questions correctly, were placed into the prize draw for the respective match.
What is a kick-off ball?
Unlike the match balls used for each game at the 2014 FIFA World Cup - of which there are several for each match - the kick-off ball is exclusive and one-of-a-kind! The kick-off ball is placed on the centre spot by the referee, and when the whistle blows to start the match, it is the first ball touched by a player on the pitch.
We are delighted to announce the winners of the kick-off balls for the 2014 FIFA World Cup! Congratulations to each and all! You are the proud owners of one of a priceless piece of World Cup history!
