Adidas Tango 12 Official Match Ball of UEFA EURO 2012
Adidas Group CEO Herbert Hainer commented: "The Adidas Tango 12 is a combination of many years of football tradition coupled with extensive player and lab testing to make it the most tested ball Adidas has ever produced.”
Adidas Tango 12 features a series of triangular panels that are thermally bonded together to ensure a true, stable flight path. Covering each panel of the ball is a grip texture which supports boot to ball contact and enhances ball control. Beneath the outer surface of the ball lies a woven carcass and a new bladder for increased air retention and reduced water uptake.
The Adidas Tango 12, which has been developed over a two-year period, underwent two rigorous types of testing - qualitative player testing, which was conducted across eight different countries, using players, federations and clubs from both elite and grass roots football, and quantitative lab testing, which concluded that the Adidas Tango 12 meets and exceeds all FIFA Approved Standards for an Official Match Ball making it the most tested ball Adidas has ever produced. You will find all ball characteristics we are testing and the respective results in the infographic below
