ADIDAS UNVEIL NEW MATCH BALL FOR UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

ADIDAS UNVEIL NEW MATCH BALL FOR UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

adidas unveil the new official match ball for the 2020 UEFA Champions League final in Istanbul on 30th May.

Inspired by the host city, the intricate design features a hand-drawn interpretation of a map of Istanbul, which joined by a bridge, links the two continents of Europe and Asia.

The design showcases Istanbul’s deep culture of design and art, with the famous white stars of the Champions League, have been used to contrast the hand-printed map of the city. The famous  natural waterway, Bosporus – that flows through Istanbul, is at the centre of the ball’s design. The eye catching purple colours used takes its inspiration fro the sun, that gives the effect of its setting, above the river.

 

 

Now for the science…

The ball puts into practise adidas’ latest technology, with an outer texture coating offers a secure grip and complete control. The thermally bonded star panels provide a seamless surface for an improved first touch. Yea – we’ll take their word for it, OK.

The ‘Istanbul 20' will be used throughout the knock-out stages of the UEFA Champions League.
