Soccer is one of the world’s most powerful communication tools. And we are committed to raising awareness of gender equality and access to all in soccer.

The unique Global Goals soccer ball not only proudly display the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and as such are a great learning tool. It is the only ball, which has also been scientifically modified to fit women and young players.

The Eir ball is the product of three years of research by scientists in Denmark and Germany supported by the German and Danish football/soccer associations. The Danish Football Association has granted permission to play with the ball for all age groups except for the pro adult league.

By offering both safe, competitive, and playful ways of playing soccer we increase the ability, confidence, and desire to be active.

If you have any questions or want to buy more than 15 balls just write us at mmg@eirsoccer.com – and we will try to discount as much as we can and hope to be able to help locate sponsors who will buy balls and donate to everyone who helps take action.

 

Buy a ball that breaks down gender stereotypes

Many young girls and women are playing soccer with a men’s size soccer ball. Most other sports like basketball, golf, tennis, and hurdle race have adjusted equipment to give players the best chance to succeed. In soccer, players aged 14-19 suffer one serious injury per year.

With a 90% chance of a suffering second injury, many of them retire from the game before they ever reach their prime. The Eir balls have been developed to fit women’s size and weight, to reduce injuries and enable a faster game. This is why we use them exclusively in our GGWCup Tournaments. 

We have created game balls for women since 2008 and they can last for years.
