THERE ARE A FEW THINGS YOU NEED TO TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION WHEN CHOOSING A FOOTBALL. Read our tips below and make your choice.

The age of the players

The first thing to bear in mind when choosing an official football is the age of the players.

For players under the age of 9, which is the U-6/U-7 and U-8/U-9 age groups at club level, you should choose a size 3 ball.
For players aged 9 to 12, in other words the U-10/U-11 and U-12/U-13 age groups at club level, a size 4 ball is the right choice.
And for players over the age of 12, namely U-14s and over, you should go for a size 5 ball.

Hand-stitched, machine-stitched or thermobonded?

Your choice will then come down to what you're looking for: a ball for beginners, a ball that's comfortable and hard-wearing, or an ultra-reliable ball offering great feel and trajectory.

Machine-stitched balls are the best for beginners (the panels are stitched together and the seams visible). These balls are easier to use and hard-wearing. They're ideal for getting into the game.

Hybrid balls (the panels are machine-stitched and the seams concealed) are both hard-wearing and comfortable to use.

Thermobonded balls are the best bet for players looking for great feel and perfect, stable flight through the air. These seamless balls are perfectly spherical and have 12 panels that are heat-bonded onto the bladder.
