With the group stages of EURO 2016 coming to a conclusion this week, adidas dropped a glimpse into the latter stages of the tournament with the help of the 'Fracas'. Bottles poppin' we stepped outside for the launch of the ball that will be used for the knock-out rounds.
With the adidas Mercury Centre in Paris providing an all round smashing backdrop, it was here where adidas invited us in to get a first glimpse at the 'Fracas' match ball which follows on from the 'Beau Jeu' and brings another round of energetic flair to the fore. Somewhat cosmic in its creation, the design is one that looks to capture emotions in its design.
An evening that took in two more fixtures in concluding one more group, this ball was thrust into the mix ahead of its own first outing this Saturday. A night that wouldn't be the same without some familiar faces, Miralem Pjanic was also on hand to cast his eye over the 'Fracas'.
