Which match day footballs should my team buy?

Which ball is best for my team is a question that we frequently get asked here at 3Q sports. We hope that this quick guide will help you to decide on a football that is suitable for your team.


One of the first things to consider is what size football you need, most of the balls that we sell come in size 3, 4 and 5. Junior teams will be looking at size 3 and 4 footballs depending on the age. The Mitre Mini Soccer match football is a great football for young players making the step up to match play. The lighter design makes the ball easier to control and will inspire confidence in junior players.

The first football we have selected is the Mitre Match Hyperseam football. This is Mitres most affordable match football starting at £12. This 12-panel ball is based on the Delta Hyperseam, Mitre’s most advanced football. The wound core gives increased shape and size control and it’s high air retention bladder means low maintenance.
