My Story:

This looks like the last English Football Association Cup ball made by Mitre until Umbro took over the reins and it could be due to this fact that a retro look was given to this ball.  Really simple, plain and nostalgic for this ball that was used in the 2005/2006 competition.  This is the pro version which has a matt look as compared to the shinier lower end yet still FIFA Approved version.
