My Story:

This is the Mitre Tensile club issued version used by Bournemouth in the 2011/2012 English Football League One season.

According to Wikipedia: A.F.C. Bournemouth is a football club that plays at Dean Court in Kings Park, Boscombe, Bournemouth, Dorset and have been in existence since 1899.

Nicknamed “The Cherries”, the team traditionally played in red shirts with white sleeves until 1971, when the strip was changed to red and black stripes, similar to that of A.C. Milan. A predominantly red shirt was chosen for the 2004–05 and 2005–06 seasons before announcing a return to the stripes for the 2006–07 season due to fan demand. After narrowly avoiding relegation from the football league in the 2008–09 season, Bournemouth were promoted in the 2009–10 to League One. In 2010–11 the club finished sixth, and qualified for the play-offs to the Championship, but lost on penalties in the semifinal against Huddersfield Town. In the 2011–12 season, they found it hard to reach the play-offs but still finished mid-table.


The Official Story:

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