Wheatley cut up six old Adidas boots - including different incarnations of Predators and a pair of World Cups - until he had 92 small leather panels which he then hand-stitched together to create a football.

Many factors were taken into consideration to ensure the best possible outcome, both in terms of aesthetics and functionality. Check out the video below detailing the creation of the ball from start to finish.
