ULLOA TO FEATURE ON CUP FINAL BALL

16 May 2018

The FA
The 2017/18 Emirates FA Cup Final ball will have all of the scorers from this season's competition.

Brighton & Hove Albion striker Leonardo Ulloa will have his name at the heart of this season’s Emirates FA Cup Final.

The Argentine forward netted in the 4-1 win over Coventry City in the quarter-final stage at the Amex Stadium and the FA has placed the names of 137 goalscorers from this season’s competition on the Cup Final ball to be used at the 137th edition of the showpiece fixture.  

The 'Ball For All' celebrates players from Step 6 of the National League system through to the Premier League, who all share the accolade of being a goalscorer in the world’s oldest domestic cup competition.

The names included represent goalscorers from every round, beginning at the Extra Preliminary Round through to the Semi Finals and also include a selection of the season’s most memorable and impactful strikes.

Andy Ambler, The FA’s Director of Professional Game Relations, said: “One of the most special things about The Emirates FA Cup is that a goalscorer in the Extra-Preliminary Round shares the same accolade as some of football’s most famous names.

“Over three thousand goals have been scored in this season’s competition, from all levels of the football pyramid and the 137 from across the country are representative of all who have contributed to this season’s competition.”
