The Champions League ball is perhaps one of the most aesthetically pleasing footballs on the planet. Forever one that you'll never want to bounce on concrete let alone go wild with in the cage, it's one that punctuates each season with so much style. For the 2018/19 season, adidas have taken a confidently bold departure from previous years as the colouring of the ball has been inverted, with white stars and an innovative blue graphic print.

The new official match ball is designed to highlight the iconic UEFA Champions League stars. The white star panels contrast with a blue graphic print covering the rest of the ball.
