The Euros got a new ball for the knockout rounds; ‘Fracas’

The Euros are heading into the knockout stages in just a few days time. Whilst the likes of England, France and Slovakia look seemingly content to ‘park the bus’ on their position in the Round of 16, Adidas has been busy creating the ‘Fracas’ match ball designed especially for the final stages of the tournament.

Launched last night at a dope little get-together of some of the coolest kids in Paris, the Fracas, on first impressions looks pretty neat. Following Adidas’ First never follows mantra, the introduction of the ball marks the first time in a major tournament two different match balls have been used.

Probably a good thing after the ‘exploding ball’ incident at France v Switzerland the other night…
