Just like previous Adidas Jumbo footballs, the Jumbo version of the Adidas Al Rihla has a diameter of 80 cm (normal Size 5 soccer ball: 22-23 cm).

In terms of tech, the Jumbo 2022 World Cup ball is very different from the regular OMB version. The Adidas Al Rihla Jumbo has a 100% polyurethane cover and is hand-stitched.

Indeed, the 2022 World Cup Jumbo is the same as previous Jumbo balls except for the shape of the panels.
