Winter breaks complete, it’s almost time to get back in the swing of elite-level football as the Champions League resumes next month. So, to whet your appetite for Messi, Ronaldo and the rest returning to TV screens worldwide, how about a look at the new official matchball that’ll be used for the rest of the competition?

It’s a bold take on the ball used pre-Christmas, this time featuring orange-red panels with a stark black outline. The bright colours are quite fitting for the venue of this year’s final: the cauldron that is Atletico Madrid’s stunning Wanda Metropolitano. Scenes from the stadium make up the backdrop for the coloured panels.


Elsewhere, it’s the same structural design as previous Finales, so the stars that have come to represent the UCL remain, though because of the black border on the surrounding panels, they’re much more prominent here. The ball’s also adorned by official logos for the Champions League, adidas, and the Madrid final itself. Tech-wise, it’s a thermally bonded seamless surface covering a butyl bladder, and the ball is fully FIFA-accredited to the highest possible standard. Would you expect anything less?
