Normally the one-off cup final match balls are boring variations of the design that’s been used throughout the tournament, but for this year’s Champions League final in Berlin, Adidas decided to add ferocious multicolored bears.
But the bears weren’t added just to look cool (which they do). Berlin’s coat of arms prominently features a bear. And to extend the local theme, the ball also features an image of Brandenburg Gate. Which doesn’t quite have the same flair as a salivating rave bear exposing its teeth.
