Welcome to Game Balls
A Guide to the Official Footballs
of Professional Leagues
football leagues are more numerous than most people realize. Some
leagues have come and gone, but most have their own unique official
game ball. For some, it’s a simple matter of branding it with
a logo. For others, the shape, color, and composition make the difference.
When put together they make an interesting group.
site attempts to illustrate nearly every official game ball of modern
professional football leagues. See them all at once on the gallery
page, and quiz yourself either
before or after you check out the individual league pages. Click
on the thumbnail photo of any ball to enlarge it. Most of these
balls are in my personal collection, and others are still on my
“want” list. If you have information about any of the
footballs and leagues mentioned or omitted on this site, please
let me know about it. My email address is at the bottom of this
page. Note: I haven't updated the site in quite some time, so some of the links and information about leagues may be out of date.
thanks to Ben Haberek, whose excellent site “Helmets,
Helmets, Helmets” provided much of the information for
many of the leagues. Other logos and photos came from other collectors
and additional sites like oursportscentral.com and sportswebsearch.com.
I’ve also provided some other links
for getting information about the leagues or the game balls. Enjoy
