In an event without precedents in the history of the UEFA European Championship, adidas has hosted the ‘Future Arena’ in Paris, a place where the official match ball and all the new away shirts of Germany, Spain, Russia, Belgium, Sweden and Denmark will be shown for the first time to public. All guests can take a look and interact with these products, while also participating in various activities such as a five a side soccer pitch with an incredible 360° projected digital football stadium surrounding the players so they can feel what’s like to play in front of 50,000 fans.

“I already tested Beau Jeu in training with long shots, passes and running at pace,” Wales forward Gareth Bale said of the new match ball. “It performed brilliantly. I can’t wait for the tournament to start.”

Zinédine Zidane, one of the most famous soccer players in history, unveiled the new official match ball for the much-anticipated tournament that will be hosted in France next summer. Nicknamed ‘Beau Jeu’ (French for ‘Beautiful Game’), the new ball features stunning and elegant graphics in various shades of blue with some touches of red, orange, black and gray.

The letters E, U, R and O, as well as the numbers 2, 0, 1 and 6 are shown on orange, alluding to next year, when the tournament will take place and new champions (or Spain themselves) will be crowned as kings of Europe to represent the continent in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.

‘Beau Jeu’ has a Premium PU Cover that has been bonded for reduced water absorption and perfect roundness. Revolutionary panel shape creates flight speed and enhances roundness to fulfill the maximum quality standards for the game at elite level.
