My Story:

This is an extremely rare hi-vis orange version of the Nike NK 800 Geo white version that was used in the 1998 UEFA Champions League Final.  On the overall it has all the markings that the white version has, with the wordings Meets or Exceeds International Matchball Standards and Tested by SGS United Kingdom Limited, Wembley showing that it is very much a match quality ball even though it is not up for the FIFA Approved quality award.  It must be highlighted that this must have been one of the earlier Nike match balls since subsequent ones from 2001 onwards has the FIFA Approved logo.

 

The Official Story:

Not seen one for the NK 800 Geo white version so I doubt ever there was one for this ball.

 

Technical Story:

Made in Pakistan.
