My Story:

This is the Mitre Revolve club issued version used by Millwall in the 2009/2010 English Football League One season.

According to Wikipedia: Millwall Football Club is an English professional football club based in South Bermondsey, south-east London. Founded as Millwall Rovers in 1885, the club has retained its name despite having last played in the Millwall area of the Isle of Dogs in 1910. From then until 1993 the club played at the Den, a now-demolished stadium in New Cross, before moving to its current home stadium nearby in South Bermondsey, also called the Den. The traditional club crest is a lion rampant, referred to in the team’s nickname “The Lions”. Millwall’s traditional kit consists of blue shirts, white shorts and blue socks. The current strip pays homage to the Scottish roots of the club and the first ever kit worn by Millwall Rovers in 1885, which the team played in until 1936; it has darker navy blue shirts and socks with white shorts.

In 2004, the team reached the final of the FA Cup and, in doing so, qualified for the UEFA Cup the following season, playing in Europe for the first time in their history. The club has also reached FA Cup semi-finals on another three occasions, in 1900, 1903 and 1937. Millwall have spent the majority of their existence competing in the second or third tier of the Football League. The team spent two seasons in the top flight between 1988–90, in which the club achieved its highest ever finish of tenth place in the First Division. Based on all results during the club’s 85 seasons in the Football League from 1920–21 to 2011–12, Millwall are ranked as the fortieth most successful club in English football.

Millwall have a long-standing rivalry with West Ham United. The local derby between the two sides has been contested almost 100 times since 1899. Millwall’s supporters have an infamous association with hooliganism. The fans are renowned for their chant, “No one likes us, we don’t care”.

 

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.
