The ball is called “Al Rikhla”.
There is a DIFA football stamp, ICSD and the symbol of the 4th World Deaf Football Championships, which means that the size of the football as well as its other characteristics are normal. Logos can be of the following varieties:
DIFA Approved – the highest quality standard (in addition to the above tests, the ball is additionally tested for strength in the form of 2 thousand hits on a steel plate at a speed of 50 km / h);
DIFA Inspected – 6 out of 9 tests are enough;
IMS – the standard is similar to the previous one; cannot be used in the official game.
