UEFA and adidas have officially unveiled the ball which will be used in the group stage of the 2020/21 Champions League.

The first phase of the competition proper gets underway on 20th October, and for the first time, the ball features a textured design which UEFA says creates depth through the layering of different coloured graphics. 
 
The draw for the group stage will take place on Thursday 1st October, and to mark the launch a new short film starring adidas ambassadors Paul Pogba of Manchester United, Paulo Dybala of Juventus and Marcelo of Real Madrid was released as part of the brand’s Ready for Sport campaign, celebrating the return of elite competitions from the coronavirus lockdown.
