The Official Match Ball for the knock-out stages and the Final of the most prestigious club competition in global football has arrived. The adidas Finale Berlin Football will be used from tonight’s PSG – Chelsea fixture onwards including the UEFA Champion League Final 2015 in Berlin on Saturday the 6th June.
The design was inspired by the dynamic, young and trendy scene of Berlin. The top star includes one of the most recognisable symbols of the city: the Brandenburg Gate set in front of the legendary Olympiastadion Berlin, home for this year’s UEFA Champions League Final and hopefully the setting for an English winner (we can dream can’t we?).
The surrounding stars on the ball each have a bold and colourful design, including the other key Berliner symbol: the bear. The bold mix of colour is also typical of the expressive, artistic and free spirited German capital city.
As with all UEFA Champions League Official Match Balls, the adidas Finale Berlin features an outer coating texture designed to provide optimal grip at the point of impact. adidas say the thermally bonded star panel design on the match ball, based on the design of the UEFA Champions League logo, provides a seamless surface and first-class performance.
The adidas Finale Berlin football will be in all adidas retailers and will set you back around £40 for the Competition ball.
