If you intend to play football indoors, or train inside through the winter months, there are a couple of things to bear in mind. You don’t want a really bouncy ball as it’s difficult to control on a hard surface (not too bad on astro-turf) and will ricochet off boards if you are playing the popular sort of 5-a-side game found in the UK. Remember, proper Futsal is played on a much wider area and you play the game between traditional touchlines rather than boards.
Indoor football is also easier if you have a slightly smaller ball. That’s why Futsal recommends a size 4 ball.
One of the best entry level options is the Molten Indoor. It is constructed purely with indoor football in mind. It has an English felt outer casing but comes with an internal bladder so that the ball retains its shape, and is official size and weight. It comes in a bright yellow making it easier to track in poorly lit arenas.
Central has a range of indoor balls which are rather than felt and have reduced bounce. Felt balls aren’t much use outdoors because they easily get waterlogged in wet conditions, this range is a good alternative for astro turf use. These balls feature bright colours too, which helps in poorly lit conditions.
All of our range of indoor footballs are designed to exacting standards so should stand up to the rigours of frequent use. With free delivery over £35 you’re sure to find the one to suit your needs at Clubline Football.
