What's the best football to buy? Well, this depends on what you like and what you'll be using it for.
Luckily for you, FFT has rounded up the best footballs on offer for any requirement or budget – including the best deals on Premier League, EFL, La Liga, Champions League and Euro 2020 official matchballs.
Let's kick off with the obvious starting point...
GIFT GUIDES The presents football lovers REALLY want
Best footballs: Nike Premier League Flight 2021/22
This season's Premier League ball is yet another beauty from Nike. It was tested for more than 1,700 hours to ensure it was as aerodynamic as possible and the results are obvious. This is the ball the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Mo Salah and Kevin De Bruyne spend their Saturday afternoon pinging around top flight stadiums in England.
You can emulate them with your very own Premier League Flight ball, which you can buy for £129.99 here.
Adidas Pro Pyrostorm 2021/22 Champions League
It doesn't get any more top shelf than the official Champions League ball, instantly recognisable by those sumptuous stars. This is the official ball being used throughout Europe's premier competition this season. There is also an orange winter version.
The creme de la creme of the footballing world are playing with this beauty this season. Why settle for less?
Puma EFL 2021/22
This season marks the first time in 45 years Mitre aren't the official supplier of the EFL match ball. That honour has been taken over by Puma, who burst onto the scene with this frankly stunning offering.
Fan of a lower league club and therefore don't care which piece of leather Manchester United and Arsenal are kicking about? Want to emulate your EFL heroes instead? Then this is the option for you.
Puma Accelerate 2
The official match ball of La Liga. This is the third season that Puma has supplied the official match ball for the Spanish top division, following Nike ending their partnership in 2019.
The ball has a 3D-textured surface for enhanced aerodynamics and a rubber bladder, along with a Puma Air Lock valve for air retention. This absolute beauty ball was unveiled in July with some of Puma's high-profile players in the league, including Jan Oblak and Jules Kounde.
Adidas Unifornia official Euro 2020 final matchball
The Adidas Uniforia was the official matchball of Euro 2020 this summer. Most similar in design to the 2014 Brazuca World Cup ball, it also has a certain 1980s Tango influence to it.
What is not in doubt is that this is Adidas's top-of-the-range ball and, with England having gone all the way to the final at Wembley over the summer, you can also purchase the above version, which was used specifically for the semi finals and final stage. It's a must have piece of memorabilia from a summer of incredibly good vibes in the English sunshine.
Adidas Finale 21
If you're a Chelsea fan, you're going to want one of these simply to commemorate the lifting of the second Champions league title in your club's history.
Thomas Tuchel's side dispatched Manchester City in May's final, with Kai Havertz poking this gorgeous metallic creation into an empty net, having rounded Ederson outside the area. It's a stunning design and now, for fans of one club in particular, one shrouded in history.
