The Official Match Ball of the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League features the classic star panel pattern with a unique graphic featuring mottos from the game's greatest players. Mesuit Ozil contributed, "Play your life, I play mine," and James Rodriguez says that "creativity wins." Gareth Bale touched upon his incredible speed, writing that he wins "faster than a speeding bullet." The match ball designed by Adidas will be used during all group stage matches, and a finale ball will be released at a later date. The 2016/17 Official Match Ball is now available in The Soccer Shop.
