ABOUT THE BALL

In 2008 Denmark’s EIR launched the first football scientifically developed and adjusted to fit female players (of course it is also suitable for any other player as well!). The design has been developed extensively over time, always with the aim of supporting women who play football.

In 2015 EIR teamed up with UNDP and created the official SDG ball that proudly displays all of the United Nations’ 17 Global Goals icons. The Global Goals are also known as the Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs).
