When speaking to customers the subject of ball care sometimes arises, with the most common query regarding inflating the balls.
When inflating the footballs care should be taken when inserting the inflation needle into the ball to prevent damage to the valve. Mitre Glycerine should be used to allow the needle to be inserted smoothly. This is particularly important when the ball is first inflated as the wall of the bladder can be damaged at this stage.
The amount of pressure in a ball will affect its performance and durability. The recommended pressure is printed on the ball and should be checked regularly using a ball pressure gauge
A range of match and training balls are available from our Mitre Footballs section at The Soccer Store.
