adidas has officially unveiled the ball for this season’s UEFA Champions League group stage, which gets underway on 20 October.
For the first time, the ball features a unique textured design which creates depth through the layering of different coloured graphics.
The dynamic design frames the famous stars in royal blue, allowing for instant recognition of the UEFA Champions League identity.
The hexagons include signal coral and sky tint colours, which epitomise speed and light.
Along with its refreshed look, the ball features the latest adidas performance technology with an innovative surface texture that gives the best players in the world even more precision on the ball.
The new outer texture coating – consistent across all adidas UEFA Champions League official match balls – offers secure grip and complete control, while the thermally bonded seamless construction guarantees ultimate performance.
