My Story:

This is the Mitre Revolve club issued version used by Scunthorpe United in the 2008/2009 English Football League Championship season. The Football League logo carries the ‘Coca Cola League Championship’ wordings.

According to Wikipedia: The team is nicknamed The Iron, and has played in a home strip of claret and blue for most of its history.  It plays its home games at Glanford Park, having moved from the Old Show Ground in 1988.  Grimsby Town, Hull City, Doncaster Rovers and Lincoln City are its main rivals.

The club was formed in 1899, turned professional in 1912 and joined the Football League in 1950. It achieved promotion to Division Two in 1958, where it stayed until 1964, but has spent most of its time as a Football League club in the basement tier. The club has had more success recently, however: it was promoted from Football League Two in 2005, and has spent three of the last five seasons in the Football League Championship.The Iron were relegated to Football League One in 2011, having finished bottom of the Championship.

In recent years, the club has developed a reputation for developing promising young strikers, having sold Billy Sharp, Martin Paterson and Gary Hooper on for seven-figure sums. The club is also considered one of the most financially prudent in English football, being one of only three in the top four divisions to be debt-free.


The Official Story:

I have not seen one yet since this is a club issued ball.  The story for the generic Mitre Revolve should be good enough.
