My Story:

After the brickbats from previous season’s orange Neo Spark which was rather dim actually, Umbro release this yellow Neo Pro (yes not Neo Spark) for the 2011/2012 English Football Association Cup season which at least did not draw the same negative feedbacks.  Come spring and this yellow ball will be replaced by the white version.


The Official Story:

The FA cup has a rich history and tradition which spans 140 years, players and fans alike are all growing in excitement as the romance of the FA Cup progress.

Being such a prestigious event requires a great ball and Umbro have produced a truly amazing one which combines cutting-edge design and technology with fine craftsmanship.

Designed to go exactly where you want it to, the Umbro F.A . Cup Neo Pro Football will fly through the air fast, straight and true.

While most footballs use a template of 20 hexagons and 12 pentagons, the Umbro F.A . Cup Neo Pro is designed with just 14 hand stitched panels, laser cut for absolute precision.

Umbro’s patented 14 panel configuration means the Umbro F.A . Cup Neo Pro football has cleaner strike zones for a better connection with the ball resulting in more power.

It’s 14 panel design also creates better shape retention for a smoother, faster and more accurate flight on the ball as it’s flying through the air.

This Umbro F.A . Cup Neo Pro Football has a soft Teijin leather outer casing finish provides better control and a fantastic super soft touch.

With the irregular geometric shape of the panels, asymmetrical design and bold eye-catching blue tint, the Umbro F.A . Cup Neo Pro football offers clearer visibility.
