Nike 13-14 Mango 'Pink' FA Cup Incyte Ball Unveiled

Just in time for the 2013-14 FA Cup Nike has released a special ball for the traditional English cup, which begins this weekend. Nike has supplied the FA Cup with their balls the first time last season, when they used a Nike ball from the semi finals after they sold Umbro and took over many of their contracts.

Update: Even officially named Mango, the color of the ball looks really similar to pink. The pink FA Cup Ball might be one of the most discussed balls used in the FA Cup.

The new Nike Incyte 2013-2014 Ball features a bright orange color.



The new 13-14 Orange FA Cup Ball features not the traditional colors white, but comes with a typical color used for bad weather conditions like snow. The color of the ball should generate maximum visibility, to allow players to react faster, called Nike RaDaR (Rapid Decision and Response) technology.

The ball itself comes with a Five-layer construction to improve the first touch for players as well as a high-elasticity layer on the surface which inreases the speed of the ball. The Nike Incyte Ball is used in several competitions, including the Premier League, Primera División and Serie A.

The 2013-2014 orange FA Cup Ball is available to purchase from December 1.
