Aberdeen Football Club - On This Day
On This Day: 15 December

1951: This was the day that Aberdeen used a white football for the first time, in place of the traditional brown one. In the era before floodlights, the white ball was much easier to follow in gloomy and muddy conditions - a great boon to spectators and players alike.
We don't know if the new ball helped the Dons to victory.
