.....And it was all yellow!

1 November 2013

City will be one of 72 Football League clubs to use special yellow footballs this weekend following the introduction of a new official match-ball by the Football League from Mitre.

Starting with Saturday's trip to Crewe Alexandra, Phil Parkinson's men will use the 'winter' yellow balls for every league match up until the end of February.

Mitre, the Official Ball Supplier of The Football League, have launched the new hi-visibility match-ball today (Friday) but Parkinson's side have been training all week with the new footballs.


The Delta V12 Fluo is the hi-visibility version of the most advanced FIFA approved quality match ball ever made. The fluo yellow colour is scientifically proven to deliver speedier player reaction times in poor visibility. The combination of 12 panels and textured grain surface keeps the ball stable at over 70mph.


All matches in the Sky Bet Championship, Sky Bet League 1 and Sky Bet League 2 will use the state of the art new Mitre footballs from this weekend, up until the end of February.  The ball will also be used in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy for the Area Quarter Finals, Area Semi-Finals and Area Finals.
