You know the competition is not far from commencing for real when the match ball gets revealed, and sure enough, with the draw for the group stages taking place today, we get the new Champions League match balls for 22/23.

Inspired by the absence of light in space and how the stars shine out against the dark void, the refracted overlays and silver rays communicate the mastering of all dimensions and the battle for the biggest stage of men’s and women’s club football.

As well as their new graphic designs, the balls feature the latest adidas performance technology, including an innovative PRISMA surface texture that offers the world’s elite players even more precision on the ball. The new outer texture coating – consistent across all adidas UEFA Champions League Official Match Balls – offers secure grip and complete control, while the thermally bonded seamless construction guarantees ultimate performance.
