Players from across the football pyramid will have their names at the heart of this seasonís Emirates FA Cup Final.

The FA has placed the names of 137 goalscorers from this seasonís competition on the Nike Ordem V, 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 worldís 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 seasonís most memorable and impactful strikes.

Among the names represented on the Ball For All will be City's Salim Relizani who scored in the Preliminary Round victory over Stamford last August. Other names featured are:
- Liam Pullen of Chipping Sodbury Town, whose strike in the Extra-Preliminary Round was the clubís first ever goal in the competition.

- Noah Keats, whose goal in the Fourth Round Qualifying saw Truro City become the first Cornish side to reach the First Round Proper since 1969.

- League One Wigan Athleticís Will Grigg, whose strike against Manchester City sealed a famous Fifth Round victory.

- Alexis SŠnchez and Willian, who both scored decisive goals for this seasonís finalists.

Andy Ambler, The FAís Director of Professional Game Relations, said: ďOne 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 footballís most famous names. Over three thousand goals have been scored in this seasonís competition, from all levels of the football pyramid and the 137 from across the country are representative of all who have contributed to this seasonís competition.Ē

Liam Pullen, Chipping Sodbury Town FC, who will also have the accolade of presenting the match ball ahead of kick-off, said: ďTo have played and scored in my clubís first ever Emirates FA Cup match back in August was a dream come true and was one of the highlights of my career to date. Itís an honour for my name to feature on the Ball For All and to be asked to carry it out at Wembley Stadium ahead of the Final is going to be extra special. Iím really looking forward to the experience and will be very proud to be representing all of the players who have scored in this seasonís competition.Ē

At the close of the season, The FA will have distributed a total of £14.6 million in competition prize money to the 737 competing teams.
