My Story:

This 2009 Audi Cup ball is third version of the family of F50 balls which rides on the technology of the Adidas Teamgeist 2, Terrapass or Europass with the PSC-Texture.  This ball with its colour scheme of dark red and blue shapes clustering together to form wavy shapes gives it a rather futuristic look.  Other times this ball has been officially seen is in the 2009 UEFA European Under-19 Championship held in Ukraine and the 2009 Peace Cup held in the Andalucia region of Spain.

The first edition of the Audi Cup was a two-day association football tournament that featured four teams, and was staged in late July 2009 at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany.  The competition was organised and promoted by car manufacturer Audi AG to celebrate their 100th year of trading, and hosted by 2007–08 Fußball-Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.  Bayern Munich defeated Manchester United in the final in a penalty shoot-out after a goalless draw.  Boca Juniors defeated Milan in the third place match.

This ball carries the team names of Bayern Munich and AC Milan.

 

The Official Story:

There should not be one available for a ball unsold in general retail so the generic F50 (version 3) one should suffice.
