Al Hilm, “The Dream”: the new ball for the Qatar 2022 World Cup to define the champion

The last week of the Qatar 2022 World Cup is underway and there is a lot of expectation to meet the champion, who will come out between Argentina, Croatia, France and Morocco. Facing the last matches of the tournament, FIFA and Adidas decided to present a new ball, which was called Al Hilm, which means “The Dream”.

This new ball will replace Al Rihla (“The Journey”), which has been used since the start of the group stage of the World Cup. The variation will not affect the technological aspect, since the ball will have the 500 Hz IMU sensor inside, to help the application of the semi-automatic offside.

Precisely, the main changes are only in appearance: Al Hilm will have red and black flashes on a golden texture, which was inspired by the twilight of the deserts that surround the Qatari cities. In the same way, there are stamped details around the architecture and the Qatari flag.

In addition, Adidas pointed out that the manufacture of the new design was done with water-based inks and glues, thinking of caring for the environment. The new ball is already available in stores and the footballers who will compete in the last stretch of the World Cup are already using it in their training sessions.

When are the semifinals of the Qatar 2022 World Cup?

The game Argentina vs. Croatia will kick off the semifinals of the Qatar 2022 World Cup and will be held next Tuesday, December 13, from 2:00 pm (Peruvian time), at the Lusail Iconic Stadium. Let’s remember that the ‘Albiceleste’ has just beaten the Netherlands on penalties (4-3); while the Croats used the same route to defeat Brazil (4-2).

And on Wednesday, December 14, the France vs. Morocco, from 2:00 pm (Peruvian time), at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor. ‘Les Bleus’, champions in Russia 2018, eliminated England (2-1); while the ‘Lions of the Atlas’ did the same with Portugal (1-0).
