adidas Drop the Official UWCL Ball for the Competition’s Knockout Stages

This Champions League ball is about to seriously light things up.

February 10th 2023

adidas reveals the UWCL Pro Ball Eindhoven, the Official Match Ball for the 2022/23 UEFA Women’s Champions League knockout stages and final.

The new ball celebrates the innovative architecture and design elements that Eindhoven – the host city for this year’s competition – is known for.

Set on a dark blue background representing the vibrancy of the city at night, neon detailing across the ball nods to the association Eindhoven has as the City of Lights.

Each iridescent neon graphic represents illustrious landmarks and famous features found across the city, including The Eindhoven Stadium as well as The Evoluon – now a conference centre, this landmark is a former 1960s science museum that resembles a UFO.

Distinctive white pearlescent Champions League stars stand out against fluorescent edges, highlighting the contrast between the impressive historic and modern architecture found in Eindhoven, plus the thriving light art scene emerging across the city.

To keep up with the demands of the modern game, the ball also features a range of adidas performance technology, including an innovative PRISMA surface texture that offers Europe’s best players precision on the ball. Whilst the outer texture coating, found on all UEFA Champions League match balls, offers secure grip and complete control with the thermally bonded seamless construction designed to deliver ultimate performance.

As part of adidas’ on-going partnership with Common Goal, 1% of all global net sales from footballs, will contribute towards initiatives driving lasting social change for under-served communities, helping to create a better and more inclusive future through football.

The 2023 UEFA Women’s Champions League final in Eindhoven takes place on June 3rd, but the UWCL Pro Ball Eindhoven is available now in adidas stores and online.
