Why You Need the Best Soccer Ball

There are so many soccer balls on the market that it can be difficult to find the best match. For some people, it means that their soccer ball needs to be made to a high standard.

The best soccer balls favor a few crucial areas of the game.

Why You Need the Best Soccer Ball


The dribble up soccer ball is nothing without speed. But in order for the ball to travel at the right speed, it is important for it to be inflated correctly. At the same time, the design of the soccer ball greatly influences its speed. Over the latest World Cup editions, FIFA has tried different types of soccer ball designs. With every new release, the ball was lighter and it was affected to a greater degree by the feet of the players. Looking back at the history of the soccer ball, it is clearly visible that there are no clear signs that faster designs are going away.


Since soccer balls also got lighter over the past few decades, their accuracy is considerably improved as well. For this reason, there is no need to look further at the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo or Paul Pogba to see how the biomechanics of the feet impacts the ball in the air. For example, free kicks can now be more precise than ever before. Hitting a 90s soccer ball is different from hitting a modern ball.

There are few distinctions between modern soccer balls as well. Official Uefa Champions League soccer balls are released every year. But at the same time, World Cups and other continental competitions come with their own soccer balls. It is why players now need to work with the solutions which are chosen by FIFA. In many instances, this is in favor of the field player and less in the case of goalkeepers who need to pay even more attention.

The real deal

Choosing the best soccer ball is not just about following trends. It is also about training with the soccer ball is resembles official releases which are used during game time. For the best skills on the ball and the best experience on the field, soccer players should only train with soccer balls which are official releases. In the case of set pieces, they can use very specific striking methods which need to be applied during the game. Furthermore, it is also important to make the distinction between how unofficial soccer balls respond and how official soccer balls respond.


The best soccer balls are the ones which are made according to official standards. They might cost more, especially in official training situations where more balls are needed. However, they might also come with the best results. At all age groups, the best soccer balls deliver the ultimate performance both for field players and for goalkeepers.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so.
