My Story:

This is the Mitre Revolve club issued version used by Tranmere Rovers in the 2008/2009 English Football League Championship season. The Football League logo carries the ‘Coca Cola League 1’ wordings.

According to Wikipedia: Tranmere Rovers Football Club are an English professional association football club founded in 1884, and based in Birkenhead, Wirral. Originally known as Belmont Football Club, they adopted their current name in 1885. They were a founder member of Division Three North in 1921, and have remained a member of the Football League since. They have spent much of their history in the shadow of Merseyside rivals Everton and Liverpool.

During the 1980s, they were beset by financial problems and, in 1987, went into administration. However, this was a prelude to the most successful period in Tranmere’s history; under manager John King, the team reached the play-offs for promotion to the Premier League in three successive seasons. Under King’s successor, John Aldridge, Tranmere experienced a number of cup runs, most notably reaching the 2000 Football League Cup Final. Other cup runs include reaching FA Cup quarter-finals in 2000, 2001 and 2004.

Tranmere’s regular kit is an all-white strip with blue trim, their main colours since 1962. The club moved to its current home, Prenton Park, in 1912. In 1995, the ground had a major redevelopment in response to the Taylor Report. It now seats 16,567 in four stands: the Main Stand, the Kop, the Johnny King stand and the Cowshed.

 

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.
