Best Soccer Ball

The best soccer ball choice may vary depending upon how you plan on using it. For practice balls you may generally want to shy away from the more expensive balls since they will get a lot of use, however you do not necessarily want the cheapest ball. If you play in a league you will want a ball that is similar in design to the ball that is used in game play. Top brands that will not kill your wallet are balls from Adidas, or Nike. For the very best, the tournament balls such as Jabulani FIFA World Cup 2010 Official Match Ball is a great choice too.


Size will also need to be a factor, and balls come in three sizes; 3,4,5. Which ever size your league uses will be the best guide to size choice. Size three is used for children under 8, size 4 for children aged 8-12, and then finally size 5 which is the international standard size ball for all players over the age of 12. Look for synthetic materials in the construction of a ball. These materials are built to last, and will hold up well to game play or daily practice. Look for stitched balls, not glued, with synthetic thread, such as polyester. More expensive balls will be hand stitched, but middle of the line balls are often stitched by machine. Look for the inner lining to made of Butyl, instead of latex, as this will save money without loosing any quality.
