Football starts with one thing: the ball. But only once you have mastered control of the ball have you mastered the game. Touch, shape, movement, flight and construction all affect how well you can command the game, taking your ball control to the next level. Whether you just want to kick a ball around in the backyard or play at professional league level, adidas has various types of football balls to suit your style of play.
All-inclusive practice balls
Built to be durable, adidas football balls are made with synthetic materials that work well on almost any field. They come in different sizes suited for all skill levels, from juniors still learning the game to experienced players wanting to practice every day. These practice balls are made with strong resilience for beginners, while more advanced players could still use them for recreational purposes. Slightly heavier, they’re perfect for use on hard turf fields. These football balls feature machine stitching, an eye-catching visual difference that separates adidas match balls from training balls.
Training balls to master your footwork
For those players looking to take their passion to the next level, it’s important to train with a football ball like the one used on match day. Your techniques for passing, shooting and general footwork will be affected when using lighter balls. These training balls are made with premium bladder latex and meet the standards for club, high school and university teams.
World Cup-worthy balls
adidas has created World Cup-worthy balls with only the highest quality technologies that are used by elite football players in stadiums around the world. These football balls are designed with quality covering, backing and bladder, with some also featuring the threadless, seamless, bevelled technology (TSBE), which creates a seamless surface touch. The technology allows you to stay in absolute control with less water uptake. Not only are these balls created with the latest leading technologies, but they also have to pass strict shape, weight, performance-rebound and water absorption tests enforced by FIFA. Most of these training and pro-league balls are FIFA-approved, meaning you can train with them just like a champion.
