Ready for another season of European football? We certainly are, and so are adidas! They've officially launched all three European match balls to be used across the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League, Europa League and Super Cup.
UEFA recently signed a new six-year deal with adidas for all three competitions which will run until the end of the 2017/18 season. Adidas' long-standing relationship with European football's premier cup competitions has given us a fresh trio of ball designs each year.
It's been a busy year for adidas footballs following the Olympic “Albert” match-ball. Now as we look ahead to the Champions League and Europa League group stages, adidas have unveiled the designs that will lead us to Wembley (UCL Final) and the Amsterdam Arena (Europa League Final).
This years Super Cup match-ball is the same as last years design and takes inspiration from the colours of the UEFA Super Cup logo, as well as the colours of the respective teams competing in the game – Chelsea and Atletico Madrid.
Which match-ball takes your fancy and who are you backing for European success this season? Let us know. Join the conversation online, on Twitter and on Facebook.
