My Story:

The Adidas Europass PowerOrange is strangely still called a match ball replica even though it is of the same technology and hence high standards of the summer version.  Maybe the different colour scheme of black dots over striking orange background just sums up the fact this it is not the real MccCoy and hence a replica.  Nonetheless this ball was created, I suppose, for the day that the weather turned freakish and it snows down on the matches in the 2008 Austria Switzerland UEFA European Championship.  Mind you, we are playing in these alpine countries.

 

The Official Story:

I don’t have the official box with the ball but I suppose it should be the same as the summer version.

 

Technical Story:

Made in Thailand.
