Ahead of the return of the UEFA Champions League today, adidas Soccer has revealed the official match ball that will be used on the road to Milan. The match ball will be used in the knock-out rounds through to crowning a winner at the San Siro in Milan on May 28, 2016.
The new design showcases iconic elements from Milan, including the Teatro alla Scalais and the stairs of the San Siro, host stadium of this year’s final. The UCL trophy is also featured in one of the famous stars, this time painted in grey with black and pink detailing.
The outer coating of the ball provides optimal grip, while the star surface is thermally bonded to have a seamless surface for improved touch. It performs equally in both dry and wet conditions, securing the show at the top level European soccer.
The new Finale Milano takes over for the Finale 15, official matchball for the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League group stage, that was released last summer.
adidas Finale Milano is available to pre-order at World Soccer Shop!
