The Umbro Neo FA Cup matchball's for The Final on Saturday have arrived at Wembley.
It's often said that 'there's no point re-inventing the wheel' and you might think that the same might apply to 'the football' but you'd be wrong. Umbro have combined cutting-edge design and technology with fine craftsmanship to create a new and improved football - A ball that goes exactly where you want it to - fast, straight and true.
So what exactly is new? It still looks pretty round? Yes, but that's where Neo's similarity to the average ball begins and ends. Whereas most footballs are designed around a template of 20 hexagons and 12 pentagons, Neo is designed with just 14 stitched panels.
14 panels creates a cleaner strike zone and better shape retention so that Neo is both faster and more accurate in flight. Finished in soft leather for great first touch sensitivity with bold eye-catching graphics for clearer visibility, Neo is your new football.www.umbro.comYou can pick up the official FA Cup Final matchday programme from Wembley Stadium, or various WHSmith and Tesco outlets, priced at £10 including a £1 donation to official FA Charity Partner Action for Children
