This Saturday, the biggest game in European club football will be taking place. No, not Cardiff versus Blackpool! The Champions League Final between Bayern Munich and Inter Milan.
Both teams will be going into the competition fired up from historic wins, with Inter Milan having secured a League and Cup Double, and Bayern Munich clinching the Bundesliga title for 2009-2010.
As the Home team, Bayern Munich will be favouring their newly-revamped Home Shirt. Bayern Munich’s new home shirt made it’s debut on their final game of the season, as Bayern claimed a 3-1 win at Hertha Berlin.
Already a favourite with the Bayern faithful, thanks to it’s return to a traditional red-and-white stripe, Arjen Robben & co. will be hoping this new shirt continues it’s run of good luck, as they enter the finals as underdogs.
Inter Milan will be sporting their current home kit, probably for the final time this year. The Inter Milan kits have always been a popular choice for Milanistas and foreign supporters alike, thanks to the classic nerrazzuri black and blue stripe.
In honour of the final, adidas have produced one of their most technically advanced footballs ever in the adidas Champions League Finale X.
With unique star-shaped panels and dimpled texture, the Finale X is sure to become a huge hit with players and fans alike.
An awesome piece of attention to detail from adidas is the inclusion of a graphic that represents all the previous Champions League Finals (that they have provided balls for) inside the Stars on the Finale X itself!
Obviously we’re never going to be 100% sure what football boots the players will wear until they step out onto the pitch – but that’s not going to stop us having a guess!
Inter Milan have the most intriguing boot-based conundrums. In training leading up to the final Samuel Eto’o has been wearing his Puma v1.08‘s again (Which you might remember he wore for Barcelona in last season’s final). If the Cameroon international sticks with this selection this could be a blow to Puma who you could only guess would like him to wear the new v1.10 Tricks.
Also in the picture above you will notice Wesley Sneijder sporting the Nike T90 Laser Elite, so we can only guess that Nike’s key wearers will also be sporting the Elite Series football boots.
As for adiZero representatives, there is the evergreen Arjen Robben in Bayern Line-up, who has been wearing the Sun Yellow/Black launch colourway when in action recently. And not to forget Inter Milan’s Goren Pandev, who gave the adidas f50 adiZero‘s a stealthy debut when he wore a blacked-out pair against Barca in April.

I also noticed a number of players from Bayern were wearing the Techfit versions, although Olic changed to a normal shirt at halftime
Inter are the champions! Bayern didn’t really have any great offensive breaks, and other than Milito’s goals neither did Internazionale the game was kind of boring.
too bad for adidas that one of its athletes and boots (milito/adipureIII) gave the victory to Inter
player kit so very beautifull
