My Story:

This is the Mitre Tensile club issued version used by Leeds United in the 2010/2011 English Football League Championship season.

According to Wikipedia: Leeds United Association Football Club is an English football club based in Beeston, Leeds, West Yorkshire. They have spent the majority of their history in the top tier of English football. The club was formed in 1919 following the disbanding of predecessor team Leeds City F.C. by The Football League. Their home is the 39,460-seat Elland Road stadium, where they have played since their establishment after taking over from Leeds City.

Leeds United have won a number trophies in English football, including 3 first division league titles, an FA Cup and a League Cup. The club have also been successful in Europe winning two Inter-Cities Fairs Cup (replaced by the UEFA Cup). However, they have also been runners-up, in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup (1967), the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup (1973) and the European Cup (1975). The club won the majority of their honours under the management of Don Revie during the 1960s and 1970s.

Leeds United’s regular kit colours are plain white. The club’s badge has been changed several times in attempts to re-brand the club and modernise its image. The current badge, features the ‘White Rose of York’ and reads “LUFC”, although the club’s name includes “AFC”.The club’s most common nicknames are “The Whites”, “United” and “The Peacocks”, the latter stemming from the former name of Elland Road, The Old Peacock Ground. Being the city’s only professional football team, Leeds United are associated with a large, passionate fan base. Recent online research indicates that they are in the top ten most supported clubs in England.

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