After using the Football League's new Fluo 'winter' footballs for the first time last Saturday, City will now be one of eighty teams to use The F.A's new official Nike F.A Cup match-ball this weekend.

Every tie in this season's competition, from Friday's first round encounter between Warrington Town and Exeter City through to the final itself, will all be played using the official F.A Cup ball shown in the main picture above.

Although Phil Parkinson's Bantams have been training with the match-balls this week, City will, of course, get their first proper use out of the balls this Sunday when they make the short journey across West Yorkshire to face Vanarama Conference side FC Halifax Town for their first round tie in front of the BT Sports cameras.
