I'd say 1980s mate. I have a match-used 1970s one that is more basic in design & style to yours.

Early to mid 80s would be my educated guess buddy.

This one is from 1984 and quite similar in style (panel wise), so I would guess it is, as Wiggy said, a 1980's ball.

According to Mitre's own website, the TACTIC was launched as a training/schools football in 1990.

"undefeated by schools since 1990".

And here is one on sale on Ebay which refers to it as a 1990s ball, so would say that decade is your best bet.
