Football Federation Australia (FFA) and Umbro today announced the Umbro Neo 150 Elite as official match ball for the Westfield FFA Cup 2014 – and the ball will be available for purchase at selected retail outlets.

Ryan Pittaway, Umbro Brand Manager Australia said he is thrilled Umbro will be partnering with the FFA for the Westfield FFA Cup.

“The growth of football in Australia and the strength of the local competition is a perfect match for our brand – which celebrates its 90th birthday this year,” he said.

“Our partnership with the FFA and the Westfield FFA Cup is what we hope will be the start of a long and successful relationship supporting the growth of the beautiful game in Australia.”

20 of the 32 teams for the first round of the Westfield FFA Cup 2014 are now known with the remaining clubs to be determined over the course of the next month before the Round of 32 draw on Friday 27 June 2014.

The Umbro Neo 150 Elite Match Ball has a traditional looking football design with modern features.

It is constructed with 14 panels, a tri-pli linings system and a Teijin outer shell to maximise power and control.

Umbro, the ‘Official Ball Supplier of the Westfield FFA Cup’, will supply the Umbro Neo 150 Elite Match Ball to all participating clubs and make it available for football fans at selected retail outlets.

FFA CEO David Gallop expressed his delight at securing the Umbro Neo 150 Elite as the Westfield FFA Cup 2014 official match ball.

“To have an international company with the footballing pedigree of Umbro supply the official match ball for the inaugural Westfield FFA Cup competition is an exciting prospect,” said Gallop.

“We look forward to working with Umbro for this inaugural edition of the Westfield FFA Cup and beyond.”

The official broadcast partner of the Westfield FFA Cup, Fox Sports, will broadcast the Round of 32 draw live and exclusive. Fox Sports’ coverage of the Westfield FFA Cup 2014 will include a minimum of 10 matches from the Round of 32 onwards, including all four Quarter Finals, both Semi Finals and the Westfield FFA Cup 2014 Final.
