My Story:

This is the ISO FA Cup that was supposedly issued for use in the 2003 Football Association Cup final between Arsenal and Southampton played at The Millenium Stadium in Cardiff, which was won 1-0 by Arsenal.  The numbering on this ball is 27/100 which means that it was likely issued to either team for training purposes.  The markings encompassing the ball shows the shape of the FA Cup itself.


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

    hi balls 1-10 were usually used for warm up at final all other balls were sold to public(very limited number 90) so quite rare balls,always go for single numbered balls even rarer cheers mick.

      Hi Mick yes I agree…guess the only one which I have is actually just the 2006 Community Shield one between Liverpool and Chelsea which is 1 out of 100. Not uploaded at the moment yet.
