One popular element of last year’s ball that will carry over to the new look is the names of every club competing in the Westfield FFA Cup 2017.
The online competition coincided with the announcement of Mitre® as the ‘Official Ball Supplier’ of the Westfield FFA Cup for the next three years.
This year Westfield FFA Cup balls will use the Delta Hyperseam, the most technologically advanced football Mitre® has ever produced.
The new Delta Hyperseam ball will be used throughout the Westfield FFA Cup Final Rounds and selected Preliminary Round matches.
