adidas to Officially Unveil UEFA Champions League Ball at #bethedifference World Final

UCL OMB 1516 PR 01

adidas is set to officially unveil tomorrow the Finale 15, Official Match Ball of the UEFA Champions League 2015/16, during the brand's #BETHEDIFFERENCE World Finals in Marseille.

The ball, which will be used throughout the Group Stages of this season's UEFA Champions League - the world´s most prestigious club competition - and which has already been in play at the preliminary qualifying playoff rounds, is poised to be one of the highlights at adidas' unique celebration of football in Marseille, which will see European powerhouses Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Bayern Munich, Chelsea FC and Juventus being brought together for the first time for a tournament like no other.

The adidas Finale 15 continues to boast the traditional and world famous star panel design but with a twist – it features a reinterpretation of the elements contained on the city crest of Milan – the location for this year's UEFA Champions League Final. The stars of the predominantly white ball come in striking tones of blue which carry a distinctive snake skin element. In addition these also feature design references to the colours of the EXPO – a Universal Exposition to be held in Milan this year.

Players from six giants of European football Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Bayern Munich, Chelsea FC and Juventus will unite in this celebration of modern football and be on hand to crown the victors of the #BETHEDIFFERENCE World Finals. With the Marseille event taking place on the same day as this year's UEFA Champions League 2015/16 group stage draw, the event will officially showcase the adidas third kits for each of the six clubs.
