The Adidas Finale 14 ball will be used as the official Champions League match ball for the group stages games of the 2014/15 competition. This ball is yet another example of an Adidas ball pushing the boundaries for soccer ball designs.

This Champions League match ball is the first ever ball in Champions League history to have an asymmetrical design in that the left and right sides bear different color schemes. The overall design remains uniform, but the dual color scheme approach aims to symbolize the rivalries between competing teams in the world's most prestigious club football competition.

The colored panels face appear to face off against each other in explosions of solar red and solar gold shapes against a black background, highlighting the moment of impact between two teams meeting each other on the pitch.
