Air leaks quickly

Air leaks quickly. Damaged Decathlon reputation

Dear Niaz,

We are truly sorry that you have had a bad experience with one of our football balls. It was never our intention.

Our design team prioritized the exterior cover's durability and bounce so that you can practice your first moves on grass pitches with our F100 football ball. Please be advised that can't be used as a match ball.

What we would like to do is identify the root cause of this issue. The air leak usually happens if the bladder is damaged while pumping air or if the ball comes in contact with any sharp objects while playing. However, do be assured that if it is a manufacturing defect, we will replace the football for you. To understand what has gone amiss, I would request you to come to any of our stores so that we can help you.

Please write back to us if you have any further queries.

It's important that young soccer players 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.


Between 2.4 oz and 2.5 oz (Size 5) Between 2.2 oz and 2.3 oz (Size 4) Between 2.1 oz and 2.2 oz (Size 3)


Average measured variation: maximum 2%. We measure the soccer ball'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.

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."

Maximum water absorption

We simulate rainy playing conditions in a lab, leaving the ball to sit in 0.8" of water on a pivoting support while 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. 2.8 oz for the First Kick in size 5.


Between 49" and 61" with a maximum difference of 4" between the ball's highest and lowest bounce. Each ball is dropped 10 times onto a steel plate from a height of 6'6".

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 30 mph at a distance of 8 feet. At the end of the test, we check: - the ball's general state: stitching must withstand this test - the circumference: must not have increased by more than 0.6". - the sphericity: must not have varied by more than 1.5%. - the air pressure: loss of pressure must not exceed 0.1 bar.


Between 14.8 and 15.7 oz. (Size 5) Between 12.3 and 13.7 oz. (Size 4) Between 10.9 and 12 oz. (Size 3)
