My Story:

The third ball of the Europa League range and we see another upgrade in the technology quite similar to that of  Tango 12 used in the 2012 Ukraine Poland UEFA European Championship in terms of the panels. However if you look closer, it has the Grip ‘N’ Groove feel that is similar to the Adidas Finale 2012 UEFA Champions League and Adidas Finale Munich 2012 UEFA Champions League Final match balls.  This is probably evident by the different FIFA Approved code which is 202.A1B instead of the 202.A1D/202.A1E associated with the Tango 12 range.

So far the Europa League match balls have been embracing the latest technology that Adidas has come up with, while this time adding a bit of blue slashes to the normally seen red patterns in white background of Europa League match balls.
