World’s (second) Largest Football?

Monday, 8th May 2006 by

Frank over at the Google Earth Blog pointed us to a Giant Football (Soccer Ball for you yanks) in Dortmund, which will be hosting some of the 2006 FIFA World Football semi-finals next month.

He suggested it's the world's largest football, but at about 50ft in diameter I'd say it's about the half the size of the Japanese example we posted last month. There seems to be a ramp leading into the ball, can any locals tell us what's inside?

Thanks: Frank
