Adidas officially revealed the winter match ball that will be used in the group stages of this year’s UEFA Champions League.
The new ball features the established star-panel design inspired by the UEFA Champions League Logo that has become a feature of adidas UCL Official Match Balls.
The 2017/18 version comes infused with new energy thanks to a dramatic blue and turquoise thunderstorm graphic.
The design ensures optimal performance for players in any condition. An outer texture coating, consistent across all adidas UCL Official Match Balls, offers secure grip and complete control while the thermally bonded star panels provide a seamless surface for an improved first touch. Taking a picture with flash will reveal a thunderstorm graphic on all of the uppers.
