The ball, which was presented for the Champions League 2008-2009, was no different from the ball for the finals of the previous tournament in Moscow. We are talking about the construction, of course. These are all the same 14 rounded panels that are connected by thermal bonding. A special gooseneck texture makes life easier for goalkeepers and helps field players better control the ball.
The ball design is inspired by the traditional atmosphere of the Champions League evening match. The combination of silver and blue symbolizes the bright spotlights of stadiums in the night sky. The green edging of the stars symbolizes the green lawn of a football field. If you know these associations, this ball no longer seems so cold and metallic, does it?
