The ball made its on the pitch debut during the first four matches of the UCL Round of 16 on Tuesday and Wednesday. It will be used for all of the competition’s knock-out stage fixtures and at the Berlin final in May.
The design was inspired by the dynamic, young and hip scene of Berlin.

The surrounding stars on the ball each have a bold and colourful design,including the other key Berliner symbol: the bear. The vibrant mix of colour is also typical of the the expressive, artistic and free spirited German capital city.
