Adidas recently launched the Official Match Ball of the UEFA Champions League 2014 Final. The game is to be held in Lisbon at the Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica on May 24th, 2014. The ball features the same thermally bonded seamless surface that keeps the Brazuca (Official Match Ball of the FIFA World Cup) together. This innovation in stitching creates a “more predictable trajectory, better touch, and lower water uptake,” according to Adidas. It’s interesting to see how much research and design goes into every match ball made by Adidas. The attention to detail is great, with the colors used to represent the blue sky and orange rooftops of Lisbon.
