Title Adidas Europass Football
Collection Museum of Design in Plastics: Arts University Bournemouth

Date 2008
Description A boxed Adidas Europass Football, from the 2000s. The Europass 2008 soccer ball comprises 14 panels, assembled using a patented thermal bonding technique, which gives a more true sphere and consistency in flight when compared with a traditional 32 panel soccer ball. The Europass 2008 is made from a bladder, textile and foam substrate and outer layers of polyurethane and Impranil, a branded polyurethane based textile coating with a textured surface. The nub-like structure of the surface provides improved grip and a larger contact surface area allowing the player more control over the ball in all weather conditions.
