Hi Everyone

After much searching, I have found the first pictures of cards and products for the Champions League 16/17 Match Attax collection.
The pictures I have found are of the Nordic Edition, although from previous CL and Premier League Match Attax releases in the Nordic countries, I think we can be 99% sure that the both the cards and products will be similar to that of the general international/UK release, with only 1 or 2 minor differences such as additional subsets.

In summary, there is going to be:

- The online game, Match Attax Live, returns, but this time with the additional incentive of being able to win prizes from entering your codes. There also appears to be some sort of partnership between Mastercard (who are one of the main Champions League sponsors) and topps, which is likely to be do with the addition of the prizes.

- Packets of Cards (Nordic Edition pictured)

- A starter pack (Nordic Edition pictured). The Nordic edition appears to contain 36 cards including a Gold Limited Edition card of Lionel Messi (likely to be the same for international/UK release), a mega double sized play pitch, a collector binder and checklist.

- Mini Tins
- Mega Tins (Being labelled in the Nordic Edition as 'Gift Boxes')
- Advent Calendar (I am expecting this to be a Nordic Exclusive due to the release of the Premier League Advent calendar in the UK)

It is also worth noting the teams on the side of the Advent Calendar and once again it would appear that there are teams missing from group stages with only 22 of the 32 club crests appearing on the side of the box.
The teams pictured are all sides that automatically qualified for the group stages par Manchester City, who it appears have been swapped in, in place of CSKA Moscow.

It could well be that a few more teams appear yet, but I just thought that it was interesting that they went to all that effort to swap Manchester City in. I really hope all 32 teams are included in some way, but I am not getting my hopes up.

Here are the images:

What do people think about the card design? I think it is quite refreshing and in particular I love the look of the Man of the Match cards in particular!

Could one of the admins please set up a new sub forum for the Match Attax 16/17 Champions League cards, so that I can then move this topic in there.

Many Thanks
Toby

Toby - great work finding these.

The design of the cards are excellent and I know this time around to source my LE's early from abroad to avoid another Gold Schurrle fiasco

I think it'll be late December, early January again Mike so it doesn't impact MA 16/17 Sales.

I have made a couple of contacts abroad now so if anyone is interested in getting any of these (from the Nordic set which is English) I could be able to help get these (if they come out earlier than here) although having bought cards from there before they are not cheap and only seem to be in packs of 6 cards!!
