adidas Finale 13 Official Match Ball -- the official ball of the Champions League, a ball approved to the highest FIFA standards.
This revolutionary star panel shape delivers perfect aerodynamics, a must for a ball to be used by Europe's finest players. High end materials are utilized in the cover, backing, and bladder to ensure the ultimate on-field performance. The thermally bonded seamless surface guarantees a predictable trajectory, better touch, and lower water uptake. And because it has been approved with the highest FIFA rating, you know this adidas Match Soccer Ball passes tests on weight, water uptake, shape, and size retention. The main material is 70% polyurethane and 30% polyester.
The Adidas Finale ball is the current official football of the UEFA Champions League, since the 2000–01 season. The ball is therefore designed with emphasis on the stars of the UEFA Champions League logo. The ball is used mostly in the final stages, as other balls may be used in preliminary rounds. For example, a Puma ball was used in a 2006–07 third qualifying round second leg match between Maccabi Haifa and Liverpool. However, in recent years Adidas Finale had been used in all stage of UEFA Champions League Season.
The ball is made by Adidas as the German brand took over the contract from Nike in 2001, and was firstly developed based on the Adidas Terrestra Silverstream, the official matchball of the UEFA Euro 2000 in the Netherlands and Belgium. This ball was also made with the same type of materials and construction used for the Adidas Fevernova, except, of course, the graphics.
The Finale ball incorporates a unique design that was inspired by the UEFA Champions League "star-ball" logo. The Finale is softer, faster, and more accurate than any other Adidas football before and it also features a layer of highly compressed, gas-filled micro-balloons of equal size (syntactic foam), proven during Euro 2000 and probably contributing to one of the highest average goal rates in a major tournament.
Until the final of the 2005–06 season, the Finale used standard hexagonal and pentagonal panels. From then on the panels are the same as the Adidas Teamgeist ball. From 2004–05 the ball was the same as the Adidas Roteiro balls, with thermally bonded panels. The only difference was the design of the pattern.
Each season in the Champions League, the colour of the stars on the ball is changed. The first ball, in 2000–1 was silver, followed by black in 2001–02, then dark blue in 2003–04, and red in 2004–05. This was followed by light blue in 2005–06. The design for next season's ball was used in this season's final. A light blue ball was used for most of the 2005–06 season, but in the final between Arsenal and FC Barcelona, held in the Stade de France, Paris it was replaced by a ball with the same paneling as the Adidas +Teamgeist but decorated with pink stars. For the 2006–07 season, the ball had grey stars trimmed in red and white and the Finale Athens ball is a chrome silver metallic with royal blue and white. For the 2007–08 season, the ball was decorated in tangerine orange and black stars with grey trim. For the final of the 2007–08 season in Moscow, the ball was gray and red stars with a gold trim, while the ball's paneling was still same with +Teamgeist, but with PSC- Texture™ which based on Adidas Europass. The match ball used for the 2008–09 season was black and white with a green trim. For 2009-10, the star-ball's based panels is being used.
Each match ball intended for use in the final is marked with the location at which the final match is to be played. For example, the 2004–05 Champions League final was held in Istanbul, Turkey and as such, the blue/silver-starred Finale balls were marked with Istanbul.
These official match balls are well prized. The UEFA Champions League is thought to be the most prestigious club competition and the ball itself has a very unusual design which makes the ball unique and sought after. FIFA Approved with highest rating, and cherishable.
