MITRE RELEASE LIMITED EDITION PERMAWHITE MAX FOOTBALL

MITRE RELEASE LIMITED EDITION PERMAWHITE MAX FOOTBALL

Mitre celebrates Ronnie Radford's famous FA Cup strike with new limited edition Permawhite Max football.

Prepare for a very special limited edition drop from Mitre the official ball supplier of The Emirates FA Cup – with only 150 in circulation.

In 1972, one of the most famous strikes in FA Cup history was scored by non-league Hereford United’s Ronnie Radford to knock out Newcastle United. Now, 50 years on, to celebrate that moment and celebrate 150 years of The Emirates FA Cup, Mitre is bringing back its legendary Mitre Permawhite Max. The limited-edition collector’s ball drops at 1pm on Friday 11th February.

 

 

Crafted from full grain leather panels, and hand stitched to reflect the original design, the Permawhite Max has been manufactured in the same way as the ball leathered into the top corner by Ronnie Radford – a moment etched into footballing folklore.

 

 

With National League side Boreham Wood pulling off the unthinkable on the South coast last weekend in the fourth round of competition, and Championship side Nottingham Forest knocking out Premier League giants and holders Leicester City, the magic of the cup is very much alive and kicking 50 years on. And football enthusiasts can now mark the occasion with this true collector’s piece. It’s not just a ball. It’s history reborn.

 

 

The FA-endorsed Mitre Permawhite Max ball is individually numbered and delivered in its own presentation box - containing a certificate of authenticity. Available in size 5 and dropping on mitre.com and prodirectsoccer.com from 1pm on Friday 11th February for a limited time RRP: £150.
