More info on “The Duke”
In honor of the late New York Giants owner, Wellington Mara, one of the most beloved and respected figures in professional sports history, the NFL has returned the name of the official game ball to “The Duke”.
Wellington Mara, who spent 81 years with the New York Giants and made numerous contributions to the NFL, was named Wellington by his father after the Duke of Wellington. He was given the nickname “The Duke” as a youngster by Giants players.
The NFL game ball was known as “The Duke” from 1941 to 1969.
The NFL first used a ball in honor of Wellington Mara called “The Duke” in 1941 at the suggestion of Chicago Bears owner George Halas, who had helped arrange with Giants owner Tim Mara “Wellington’s father” for Wilson Sporting Goods Co. to become the leagues official supplier of game balls.
“The Duke” ball was used through 1969 but was discontinued prior to the 1970 season, the first to be played in the NFL-American Football League merger. The NFL and AFL continued using a Wilson football, but with a new design.
Wilson has been a partner with the NFL for over 65 years; this is believed to be one
of the longest agreements in sports history.
