The official match ball was adapted from Molten’s flagship football model, the Vantaggio 5000. Molten’s unique thermal bonding technology enhances shape retention and minimizes water absorption, resulting in an exceptional performance regardless of conditions. The dimples on the surface reduce turbulence around the ball while it is in flight, optimizing ball control. Giving special consideration to UEFA’s brand, Molten created an exclusive design for the competition’s official match ball.
UEFA Europa League is the largest league of professional football clubs in the world. Every season, over 180 professional football teams from 55 countries across Europe take part in the league games, including the preliminary round.
