My Story:

The fourth ball of the Europa League range and we see slight tweak in the surface technology to that of Tango 12 used in the 2012 Ukraine Poland UEFA European Championship, whereby the grooves are more refined looking to the eye.  The exterior design now takes on the similar patterns of the Adidas Predator balls which are typically not of match ball quality and is in sync with the latest Adidas Predator boot series in 2012.  This has lead to many retailers calling it the Adidas Predator Europa League Official Match Ball.  But keeping with the colour schemes of the UEFA Europa League, it has that red and dark yellow combination over a white background.
