My Story:

This Finale Wembley match ball was the second Wembley ball in three seasons with designs and patterns like the crown, and numbers 1963 and 2013 paying homage to the Wembley Stadium, 50 years and still counting. The 2013 UEFA Champions League final was the final match of the 2012/2013 UEFA Champions League season contested between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, both of Germany at Wembley Stadium in London, which was won 1-2 by Bayern Munich in normal regulation time.

This ball has the Borussia Dortmund vs FC Bayern München inscription and is probably one of the actual match balls used at the 2013 UEFA Champions League Finals held in Wembley.

An interesting point to note is the FIFA Approved Code of 202.A1F which is different from the 2o2.A1A of last year’s Finale Munich match ball.  Since there is no change to the star panel design, the only difference of note is the surface which is slightly less rough like the Tango 12 surface.

 

The Official Story:

Since this is the actual ball used in the finals and has the name of the teams, it is not available in general retail and hence you can rely on the generic one instead.

 

Technical Story:
