The official competition's logo was once again designed with the contribution of the now closed Portuguese design agency Brandia Central. It was unveiled in 2014 by Russian cosmonauts orbiting the Earth on the International Space Station. The logo itself symbolizes a "lift-off" movement of a ball with stylized windows, bringing football emotion and human excitement closer to the stars.
