As UEFA official supplier partner, adidas fully leverages its marketing rights to utilise the tournament matchball to communicate, engage and display a product that will continuously be under the spotlights: The adidas Finale Berlin.
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 6th June.
The surrounding stars on the ball each have a bold and colourful design,including the other key Berliner symbol: the bear. The vibrant mix of colour is also typical of the the expressive, artistic and free spirited German capital city.
The Finale Berlin will also be showcased in this week´s 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 instalment 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.
As with all UEFA 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. [Source: adidas.com]
