Only three days to go until the UEFA Champions League Final 2012 takes place in Munich. Only three more days before it is FC Bayern vs. FC Chelsea, Schweinsteiger vs. Lampard, “Stern des Südens” vs. “Go Blues”, Germany vs. England and Red vs. Blue.
Here at the adidas Group’s headquarters, where almost only people with a huge passion for sport come together, there is no day without excited discussions and predictions as to who will win the Final. Therefore we wanted to know which team our colleagues will support on May 19th and asked “… Are you red or are you blue?”
Check out the video below to see our cheers and chants and how we go ‘all in’ for our teams.
One important logistical task following the launch of the adidas Tango 12 is the delivery of training balls to the participating federations. This task was performed today. In the past such issues as balls going missing, not enough training time with the balls and obviously some federations wanting to purchase additional training balls were raised; for UEFA EURO 2012™ it is no different.
“In the 21st century designing a club’s new kit is a distinctly hi-tech affair”, writes “Champions”, the UEFA Champions League’s official magazine.
