The Mitre Delta V12S has fast become one of our favourite match balls to launch this year.
It’s hand-stitched goodness and leather-feel casing are good enough reasons to love this footy, but team it with one of our favourite charitable initiatives – Movember – and that’s a combo we can get behind.
This November will see the debut of the new Mitre Delta V12S Fluo football which will be used across the Sky Bet Football League from this weekend through until March.
In a first for The Football League, on Saturday the new fluorescent yellow balls will also feature the iconic Movember “Mo” to celebrate the start of the Movember charity campaign.
Each year, Movember challenges men to grow moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness and funds for beneficiaries including The Football League’s Official Charity Partner, Prostate Cancer UK.
The new Mitre Delta V12S Fluo football will be provided to all 72 Football League clubs for their first matches of Movember and will feature in the 34 Sky Bet Football League matches that kick-off on Saturday including Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Birmingham City and AFC Bournemouth vs Brighton & Hove Albion, both broadcast live on Sky Sports.
Mitre and the Football League both describe the Movember cause as ‘fantastic’ and the fact that it aligns with their existing choice of charity only makes it sweeter.
