My Story:

The second ball of the Europa League range and we see an upgrade in the technology of that of a Jabulani (or a Torfabrik or a Speedcell) of the 2010 FIFA World Cup match ball fame, which bears the Grip ‘N’ Groove technology.  Other than this upgrade, the design of the ball looks pretty much the same as the first version.

 

The Official Story:

Developed with the Grip n Groove technology first seen on the adidas Jabulani World Cup football, the adidas Europa League official match ball provides an exceptionally stable flight and perfect grip under all conditions.  The official adidas Europa League football is thermally bonded for a seamless surface and features a micro texture that improves contact between ball and foot.  This provides a more predictable trajectory, better touch and lower water uptake during games.  And with the highest quality FIFA rating, the Europa League Official Match ball is designed for world class performance in the elite level of football!

  • Eight 3 D spherically formed EVA and TPU panels thermally bonded
  • Dynamic flight combined with perfect roundness Aero grooves create the clearly visible profile on the match ball surface
  • Grip n Groove profile circles round the entire ball in an optimal aerodynamic way
  • FIFA approved
  • adidas and Europa League logo prints
  • White
