My Story:

The Total 90 Aerow version used in the 2005 series of the AFC Champions League. The design of the Aerow is a masterstroke by Nike in that it embraces a kind of bulls eye target mentality within a timing of 90 minutes, genius. The 2005 final was a two legged tie between Al Ittihad of Saudi Arabia and Al Ain of United Arab Emirates.  The championship was retained by the Saudi Arabian club Al Ittihad with a 5-3 aggregate victory over UAE side Al Ain. Following a 1-1 draw at the Tahnon Bin Mohammed Stadium in Al Ain in the first leg, Ittihad recorded a 4-2 victory at the Prince Abdullah Al Faisal Stadium in Jeddah to lift the trophy for the second consecutive season.


The Official Story:

I do not recall seeing one specifically for the AFC Champions League version of the Nike Aerow so the one for the English Premier League one is apt enough.
