Technical Information

1
Design
It's important that young footballers use a ball that's the right size, no matter their age, which is why our design teams have developed the First Kick. Size 3 for children younger than 8 Size 4 for children aged 8 to 12 Size 5 for all other ages. In addition, we have conducted numerous lab tests to guarantee the ball's ability to withstand every hit.
2
Circumference
Between 68.5 and 69.5g (Size 5) Between 63.5 and 66g (Size 4) Between 60.5 and 62.5g (Size 3)
3
Sphericity
Average measured variation: maximum 2%. We measure the football's sphericity at 16 different points and examine the recorded discrepancies. If the discrepancy is greater than 2% (FIFA PRO Standard), our engineers are tasked with improving the sphericity to ensure a consistent bounce.
4
Maximum pressure loss
We inflate the ball to the recommended pressure (meaning 0.8 bar). 72 hours later, the ball must not lose more than 15% of its pressure, meaning approx. 0.1 bar. The pressure after 72 hours must, therefore, be at approx. 0.7 bar. This also means that it is quite normal for a ball to lose pressure after a few days."
5
Maximum water absorption
We simulate rainy playing conditions in a lab, leaving the ball to sit in 2 cm of water on a pivoting support whilst subjecting it to 250 compressions. By the end of the test, the ball must not have absorbed more than 20% of its weight, or approx. 80 g for the First Kick in size 5.
6
Bounce
Between 125 and 155cm with a maximum difference of 10cm between the ball's highest and lowest bounce. Each ball is dropped 10 times onto a steel plate from a height of 2 metres.
7
Shape and pressure retention
The most demanding test that this ball is subjected to is the machine shot test. Withstands up to 2500 shots against an inclined concrete surface at 50 km/h from a distance of 2.5 m. At the end of the test, we check: - the ball's general state: stitching must withstand this test - the circumference: it must not have increased by more than 1.5 cm - the sphericity: must not have varied by more than 1.5%. - the air pressure: the ball's loss of pressure must not exceed 0.1 bar

Kids love the ball.... brought 3 of them. One to have for the garden or to take to the park! Great quality n value for money!
We inflate the ball to the recommended pressure
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
So in the technical information it clearly states "We inflate the ball to the recommended pressure (meaning 0.8 bar)." Yes I have ordered 30 but at no point during my ordering did it state they would come flat! your description is therefore incorrect - but I have paid the same price for deflated balloons as inflated ones. not happy. so for your ease they are flat but this is not easy for me. So I will be returning them and buy 30 from your shop!
Response of the brand
Hi Louise,

Thanks for the review and the feedback. I have spoken to our web team and we will adapt the description so it is clear, and speak to our logistics team to try to find a solution for those who want the balls ready-pumped. How close are you to a store? We'll be happy to pump them up for you if you're able to bring them in. Let me know and I am happy to contact the person you need.

Kind regards,

Will
