Quick Start Guide
The 2002 journey showed us the ability of football to break down barriers and create friendships — that everyone shares football as a common language. The Ball 2006, The Spirit of Football to give it its full name, embodies the motto of the 2006 World Cup: A Time to make Friends, and its journey will again bring people together in the spirit of the beautiful game.
The Ball 2006 was played with in a commemorative match in Battersea Park, London, reminding us of the origins of the modern game. It kicked off from England and headed for Munich for the Opening Ceremony on the 9th June 2006.
