Flat after one use!

It was great whilst it lasted…which was about 20 minutes. Next time we use it it was flat! Disappointing present.

Best ball I've ever had

Excellent ball, the lighter weight makes it more suitable for any non-competitive setting. You still get a lovely flight on it but avoid the same sting when it's booted against you. Also nicer for goalkeepers to use as there's much less impact on the wrist.

a normal ball for basic play

cheap and easy to use ball but difficult to find a suitable air pump for it without going back to orginal retail store

Gut für die Straße

Mein Junior kickt gerne auf der Spielstraße, wo es auch parkende Autos gibt. Richtige Fußbälle sind härte und können bei Autos auch mal ne Delle hinterlassen. Dieser Ball ist zwar so schwer wie ein Jugendball, aber die Oberfläche ist softer. Somit kann man damit besser kicken, als mit einem Gummiball, aber die Autos werden geschont. ;-)

Super Ball

Der Ball ist einfach super und genau das richtige für Anfänger! Vorallem ist es nicht so schade wenn einmal was mit dem Ball passiert kann man sich einen neuen kaufen den der Preis ist gerechtfertigt. Das einzige was ich mir noch wünschen würde das es den Ball mit dem gleichen Aufdruck in verschieden Farben geben würde (z.B. Grün/Rot). Sehr Empfehlenswert!!!

Leider dauerhafter Luftverlust

Eigentlich ein schöner und leichter Ball für den Kindersport. Leider verliert der Ball andauernd Luft, so dass er jeden Tag neu aufgepumpt werden muss. Das Ventil scheint jedoch dicht zu sein.

Guten Tag Dieter,

vielen Dank für deine Produktbewertung. Produktbewertungen helfen uns dabei uns und unsere Produkte stetig weiterzuentwickeln. Es tut mir sehr leid, dass der Fussball schon nach weniger Zeit die Luft verliert, das darf natürlich nicht sein. Ich werde dein Feedback an den zuständigen Produktmanager weitergeben. Wir hoffen sehr, dass wir dich beim nächsten Mal wieder von unseren Produkten begeistern können.

Mit sportlichen Grüßen



Fussball Sofz

Sehr zu empfehlen

The story behind this ball

For beginner football players, it is sometimes difficult to get the power they want and reach the corners. This is why our teams have specially designed the Softball, which weighs only 290 g, about 130 g less than a standard ball of the same size for better feel when playing!Learn football light-heartedly with this ball.

A softer ball, what for?

To make your home football matches more fun, we created a softer ball, called the Softball. Thanks to the synthetic outer (TPU) with 2 mm foam, contact with the ball will be more enjoyable with reduced impact for the feet and head.Gently get to grips with football with this ball.

Did you say lightweight? but is it durable?

To limit the chances of the ball puncturing and cutting your scrimmage short, we have reinforced the interior bladder with a protective woven covering. This reinforcement also provides perfect sphericity and a uniform, even bounce.

How big is it? what's the circumference?

The size of this ball is between 68.0 cm and 70.0 cm (size 5).

How about you? what do you think?

We value your feedback and use it to continuously improve our products.A huge thank you in advance for sharing your feedback with us.

Storage instructions

After use, store your ball in a dry and ventilated place.
