This seems to be the design for the new UEFA EURO 2012 match ball which will be officially unveiled on December 3.
“We will certainly make the ball (fly) faster and hopefully, we’ll see a lot of goals being scored at next year’s tournament in Poland and Ukraine,” Herbert Hainer told Reuters at a media briefing in Moscow last month.
The new Euro 2012 ball will undergo a “revolutionary development” compared to the famous Jabulani ball, which gave goalkeepers so much trouble at last year’s World Cup.
“As for Jabulani, we certainly underestimated high altitude, at which the tournament in South Africa was played,” Hainer said.
“As for the complaints from goalkeepers, as soon as the tournament started everyone was quiet because people were just enjoying watching the games. And in the Champions League we’ve seen no complaints at all.”
Hainer declined to unveil the name of the Euro 2012 ball, which will be officially presented at the draw ceremony for the finals in Kiev on Dec. 3, saying only that the ball will have a theme associated with both Poland and Ukraine.
