Manufacturers recommend that you reduce the air pressure in your match balls after a game to reduce the amount of stress on the ball seams or stitching. Be sure to inflate the ball back to proper pressure before the game.
The bladders hold the air and are at the very center of the balls. They are made out of PU. The lining is inserted between bladder and cover. It gives the ball the shape, structure, and feel. It ensures a proper bounce. Lower end balls have two layers of polyester. Mid-level balls have two to three layers of cotton or polyester. Top level balls have four to five layers of cotton or polyester.
The cover material depends on the level of skill. The three most common materials are Synthetic, Polyurethane (PU), and PVC.
Synthetic used for best quality soccer balls. It offers superior feel and softness, but is less durable and less water resistant than other materials. It is the most expensive cover material.
Polyurethane (PU) is used for high quality practice balls and basic game balls. It combines the benefits of synthetic materials (great feel and softness) and PVC (highly durable). Feels like leather. Highly scuff resistant, water resistant, and durable. PVC is used for entry-level practice balls, molded out of plastic with a glossy coating for additional protection. It is the most durable, scuff resistant and water resistant material. Has less softness and feel than the other cover materials. Generally used for the least expensive balls. The balls are treated with an anti-rain product.
Football balls are made out of 4 panels and are either hand or machine stitched. Stitches hold the panels together. The laces are hand stitched and the other stitching is machine stitched.
