toonpete1892 Posted July 9, 2009 Share Posted July 9, 2009 Its been mentioned in a couple of other threads but I’ve been it holding off until I had a decent image of the completed ball. I had thought of doing a panel by panel reveal but fortunately the ball arrived in the office today so here is the official Mitre Newcastle United Championship Matchball for the 2009/10 season … http://img37.imageshack.us/img37/5936/side2m.jpg http://img509.imageshack.us/img509/9485/side3.jpg As part of my placement at Mitre, it has been one of my roles over the last 6 months to work alongside the Football League and the individual clubs to create all 72 (and several possible relegation/promotion teams) ball designs for the forthcoming season. Unfortunately that meant creating the designs of our ball way before the season ended. Come Villa Park on the last day, obviously I was hoping for Premiership survival but seeing the club I support using the ball I designed came a close second. Whilst others had to face piss taking work colleagues on that Tuesday morning, I had the responsibility of finalising the design and seeking approval from the club. Not great! On another note, Sky Sports have chosen to run a specific feature about the Newcastle ball and this should be aired within the next few days – further details will follow. And unlike the Chronicle’s story on the ball the other day, this will actually be about the right matchball, the Mitre Revolve. I hope you like it!!!
