Berlin - adidas is proud to show the world the ball that everyone will want to get
their hands on.
The adidas Finale Berlin - the Official Match Ball for
the knock-out stages and the Final of the most prestigious club competition in
global football - has arrived.
Now that the UEFA Champions League
is about to enter its most exciting stage, the ball is ready to become the
centre of attention once again, and will shine throughout the pitches of
Europe; from the knock-out stages, all the way to the Final.
The design was inspired by the
dynamic, young and hip 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, the setting for this year´s ultimate UEFA
Champions League showdown, which will take place on Saturday, June 6.
The surrounding stars on the ball
each have a bold and colourful design, including the other key Berliner symbol:
The vibrant mix of colour is also typical of the expressive, artistic
and free spirited German capital city.
The Finale Berlin will also be
showcased in the latest Gamedayplus episode, the 7th of the
series, which will include an exclusive stadium tour at Chelsea with none other
than star defender Gary Cahill.
The installment will also give a special behind
the scenes look at the shooting of adidas most recent ´There will be Haters´
campaign advert, featuring Leo Messi, James Rodriguez, Luis Suarez, Gareth
Bale, Benzema. To cap it off adidas had a chat with FC Basel´s Fabian Frei who
teed-up the knock-out clash with FC Porto. T

Champions League Official Match Balls, the adidas Finale Berlin features an outer coating texture
designed to provide optimal grip at the point of impact. 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.
