When it comes to experience, few sports equipment manufacturers can equal Mitre. They’ve been around since 1817 and during all of that time they have been producing footballs. Consequently, Mitre footballs have been extensively researched, designed and developed so that you can now be assured of a top performing football. Many of the Mitre footballs utilise what the company calls Hyperseam technology. This is where stitched and bonded seams are fused together. Mitre says this offers an unrivalled flight control and makes the ball 100% waterproof therefore retaining its perfect weight and shape. The balls have a 12 panel construction with textured surface for optimum aerodynamic control. For the last 40 years, Mitre has been the official match ball of the English Football League. The Mitre Delta Hyperseam ball is their most advanced product and features across the Championship, League One, League Two and the League Cup. Mitre is also the Official Ball Partner of all SPFL leagues. For the more cost conscious, aim for the Delta Hyperseam replica match football and the Fluo variation. Both of these models are based on the pro-versions with much of the same technology. Mitre has a range of balls designed for indoor / Futsal use. They are made from a variety of materials that is reflected in their rebound ability and price. The felt ball has a 50% rebound while something like a Nebula Futsal ball has a 30% rebound. Most indoor balls are made from polyurethane to assure high levels of durability when used on rough surfaces. They are also available in various sizes. If you want to improve your technique, Mitre recommends their size two Midi football. This ball is also ideal for youngsters who’re learning the game. Mitre even produces balls for use on tarmac and dimple balls that require zero maintenance. These hard-wearing balls are ideal for school playgrounds.
