Having a Ball

AS last season, this year's FA Cup match ball is a mango design by Nike.

We will be using the ball for our FA Cup first round tie on Saturday at Home Park against AFC Fylde.

Based on the Nike Ordem Match Ball, the Nike FA Cup 2014-15 football features Nike Aerowtrac grooves and a micro-textured casing for accuracy, control and a true flight. The Nike Ordem II Football merges three synthetic layers for the casing to equalize surface air flow.

The ball is mainly orange with navy and royal blue applications for better visibility. The Swoosh is royal blue with a white border, while the 2014-15 FA Cup logo and the lettering Nike Ordem are printed on the upper of the ball.
