UEFA Champions League Final Match Ball Revealed

With the UEFA Champions League Final approaching fast this June in Cardiff, UEFA have just announced the Champions League final match ball.

The official match ball will actually be used for the knockout stages and the final itself.

Inspired by the national emblem of Wales, the ball’s design features a striking dragon print. The dragon, a symbol of power and strength in Celtic mythology, represents the ferocity with which the latter stages will be played. The 2017 final takes place on Saturday 3 June at the National Stadium of Wales in Cardiff.

As with all adidas UEFA Champions League official match balls, its outer coating provides optimal grip, while the familiar thermally-bonded star panel design provides a seamless surface for improved first touch.

The ball will be used during UEFA Champions League matches from Tuesday, when Benfica host Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain take on Barcelona.

Here at LTST, we are massive football fans but we are also based just outside of Cardiff, so this is such an exciting thing to have the Champion League final being hosted just down the road.
