ABOUT THE EIR BALL

Most other sports – e.g. basketball, hedge and golf – have adjusted the game/and equipment to women. Not in football/soccer. With the Eir ball we give women soccer players a full, safe lifetime of joy playing the game they love. ‘Common sense’ as Emma Hayes – head coach from Chelsea ladies – always says.

All footballs produced by Eir Soccer are special because it is a football scientifically adjusted by scientists to fit female players, reduce the high level of injuries and create speed. It is a football suitable for any player.

THE EIR BALL MAKES YOU PLAY FASTER

The ball may feel fast the first few times you play with it - but after a little practice you will be able to control it fully and hopefully fall in love with the speed of the ball like we did.

KEEPING THE BALL IN SHAPE

The first time you pump the ball, give it a day to really fall into the shape. Since the inner material is organic the Ball will loose a little air over a few weeks time. This is a good thing – it will keep the material elastic and soft. Eir recommend that you give the Ball valve a drop of ball pump oil every 4-6 months to keep the valve flexible and minimize air loss.

THE BALL MAY FEEL HARD IN COLD WEATHER

Consider deflating it and keep it somewhere warm for a short time – e.g. close to a heater for an hour. Then give it a 30 seconds massage with your hands. The ball will be softer when you inflate it again.

THE BALLS ARE HAND STITCHED

ABOUT THE GLOBAL GOALS

In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Goals for a better world by 2030. These Goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and address the urgency of climate change. Guided by the Goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone. Same year Eir Soccer partnered up with UNDP - and since the Eir Ball have been an active player in sharing the United Nations 17 Global Goals worldvide in schools, in boardrooms, and in the alternative Global Goals World Cup (GGWCup) founded by Majken Gilmartin and Rikke Rønholt. Learn more about the Goals here.

Majken Gilmartin invented the sensational Eir Ball and have been producing handmade game balls since 2008. The SDG Ball is the only football used in the alternative world cup for women: The Global Goals World Cup (GGWCup).
