Exclusive Rare Breaking News HD Video adidas Presents Official Match Ball For UEFA EURO 2012 Sports Soccer Football News adidas and UEFA presented the adidas "Tango 12", the Official Match Ball for the UEFA EURO 2012â„¢. The ball was unveiled on stage during the UEFA EURO 2012â„¢ finals draw by former Ukrainian Olympic pole vaulter Sergey Bubka. Based on the classic Tango design used during both the FIFA World Cupâ„¢ and UEFA EUROâ„¢ tournaments during the early 1980s, the adidas Tango 12 features a modern interpretation of the design including a coloured outline inspired by the flags of the two host nations -- Poland and Ukraine. Etched into the Tango design are three bespoke graphics which celebrate the decorative art of paper cutting, a tradition in the rural areas of both host countries and link to the key characteristics of football -- unity, rivalry and passion. Complementing the design, the adidas Tango 12 features a series of triangular panels that are thermally bonded together to ensure a true, stable flight path. Covering each panel of the ball is a grip texture which supports boot to ball contact and enhances ball control. Beneath the outer surface of the ball lies a woven carcass and a new bladder for increased air retention and reduced water uptake. Available content includes an edited package as well as stills.
