adidas Europa League 16/17 Match Ball

With the group stage draw done and dusted, and the googling of random Eastern European clubs completed it’s time for the football to do the talking in the 2016/17 Europa League. New ball needed, new ball delivered, as adidas roll out the official match ball for their secondary European competition.

It’s a slightly new look for the Europa League match ball as shades of red and navy sit on the white backdrop. Tech-wise, there’s absolutely nothing different to the ball from the previous competition and the ball even retains the same design as the one used to fire Sevilla to European success for a consecutive year. Fans of Man City, Leicester, Arsenal & Spurs, don’t worry about it. Fans of Man United and Southampton, drink it in. Fans of Chelsea, concentrate on qualifying.
