Introducing the “Beau Jeu” ball

The official match ball of UEFA Euro 2016, the "Beau Jeu” (French for "beautiful game”) has a unique symmetry of six identical propeller-shaped polymer panels being thermally bonded together, alongside a different surface structure. They will provide improved grip, touch, stability and aerodynamics on the pitch. Incorporating the best elements of "Brazuca”, the official match ball of 2014 World Cup, the "Beau Jeu” surpasses it in terms of properties and improved grip in play. The new outer shell now consists of a total of five layers using polyurethane protecting the ball against external factors and providing much needed elasticity, improved ball control and a stable flight. It is also water resistant.
