Adidas has unveiled the official match ball for the Uefa Champions League final in Rome on May 27th'  – the Adidas “Finale Rome”.

The Italian capital is hosting its second Uefa Champions League final, the first was in 1996, with Europe’s top two sides destined to meet in Italy’s biggest sports arena, the Stadio Olimpico.


The design of the Adidas “Finale Rome” is based on the widely recognizable Uefa Champions League star ball. The colours of the new match ball, which are mirrored in the latest models of the adiPure, F50.9 TUNiT and Predator Powerswerve football boots, are inspired by the traditional Roman colour burgundy with gold detailing around the stars.

Mosaic figures representing key sporting and Roman values such as speed, teamwork, justice and power are featured in each star honouring the most important European club game.

Like the “Europass”, the “Finale Rome” features the innovative surface structure, PSC-Texture which allows players to control and direct the ball perfectly in all weather conditions. The PSC- Texture consists of a sophisticated and extremely fine structure on the ball’s outer skin that guarantees optimum grip between ball and boot. Due to the usage of this material, the ball texture feels like goose bumps.

In addition, the “Finale Rome” is constructed out of 14 panels using thermal bonding technology.

    What a beautiful ball! If adidas did as good a job of incorporating little details in the design aesthetic into the design of their kits and boots as they do with their balls, they would be pushing Nike much harder than they are now.
