Adidas Are Releasing A FIFA World Cup Mini Ball Set And We Need It

If you want to be properly prepared for the World Cup in a few months time, surely the best way is to buy a mini bundle of 13 World Cup balls?

With there being just 98 days until the showpiece in the Russia, Adidas are releasing the set, which comprises of mini recreations for every matchball used in the tournament since the 1970 World Cup - the first instance Adidas supplied the ball.

A £60 mini ball set had already been on sale on Pro Direct but, as per the ultra reliable Footy Headlines, this one is updated and features the famed Jabulani from 2010, 2014's ball from Brazil and all the classics they have produced over the past 48 years.

It also includes the smart Adidas Telstar 18 which will be used for this year's festival of football, starting with the opening game between Russia and Saudi Arabia on June 14.

The pack is set to cost $150 (£108) but you are getting 13 beautiful World Cup footballs so it's an absolute bargain when you think of, isn't it? Nostalgia is worth all the money in the world.

In other World Cup memento news, Panini have revealed that the obligatory World Cup sticker book will be on sale later this month. As of March 22, you'll be able to head over to your local shop or WH Smiths to get onboard the sticker hype and enjoy spending your hard-earned cash on getting 17 Yuri Zhirkov's in swaps.

The fine folks over at FootCardSticker have been getting us very excited with some images of the stickers and the designs:
