My Story:

This is the ISO Carling that was supposedly issued for use in the 2005 Carling Cup final between Liverpool and Chelsea played at The Millenium Stadium in Cardiff, which was won 2-3 by Chelsea.  The numbering on this ball is 40/100 which means that it was likely issued to either team for training purposes.  The markings encompassing the ball shows each Football League Cup winners up till 2004.


The Official Story:

I have not seen one yet since this is supposed a match issued ball for the final.   The story for the generic Mitre ISO should be good enough.


Technical Story:

Made in Pakistan.

FIFA Approved Code: 219.O2P
