adidas Finale Munich

The official match ball for the 2012 UEFA Champions League final, the adidas Finale Munich, was unveiled at the Fußball Arena München ahead of its debut in the round of 16.

The official match ball for the 2012 UEFA Champions League final – the adidas Finale Munich – was officially presented at the venue for this season's showpiece match, the Fußball Arena München.

As the 12th adidas supplied match ball for a UEFA Champions League final, the adidas Finale Munich will be the first "final ball" to be used throughout the UEFA Champions League knockout stages and not just for the final itself.

The ball's graphics are inspired by the shape of the Fußball Arena München and they enhance its iconic starball logo design, while the blue and acqua tones are strongly influenced by the reflection of modern local architectural materials, which also build the UEFA Champions League Final Munich 2012 brand identity.

The adidas Finale Munich made its debut with two of the eight round of 16 ties – the first leg matches between Olympique Lyonnais and APOEL FC, and Bayer 04 Leverkusen and FC Barcelona.

The UEFA Champions League final takes place in the Bavarian city on Saturday 19 May.
