New 23/24 season men’s and women’s Champions League balls unveiled
The new match balls, once again supplied by Adidas will be used in the group stage of both competitions.
The group stages of the 2023-24 UEFA Champions League men’s and women’s competitions are just around the corner with the men’s group action kicking off in September and two months later the group stage of the women’s competition gets underway.
Building up to both tournaments, official supplier Adidas have unveiled the balls that will be used in both competitions with the respective anthems an inspiration when it comes to the design of the match balls.
The Champions League anthems mark a dramatic precursor to the games and the new designs pay tribute to these iconic symphonies and the irreplaceable feelings of excitement and anticipation that come with them.
Set on a metallic silver background, the men’s ball uses a single letter from the instantly recognisable chorus lyric – ‘The Champions’ - onto each of the 12 stars.
An anthem ahead of Women’s Champions League matches was introduced in the 2021/22 season and the the new design incorporates the lyrics of the song in two of the ball’s eye-catching star panels – creating a unique circular text pattern in bright orange. The remaining ten stars feature a wavy purple and pink print with the overall effect creating an abstract and attention-grabbing look.
