Footballs are not made made in England because people in LEDC's ( Less Economically developed countries ) will make footballs for much lower pay. On average people in places like Pakistan will sew footballs for 50p, you can roughly sew four footballs a day which means the people stiching footballs get roughly about 2 pounds a day!

Football are sometimes called a "pigskin," which makes people think footballs might be made out of pigs. But nope! The NFL's official footballs are made of premium cowhide leather.

The NFL's official footballs are only made at the Wilson Football Factory in Ada, Ohio.

Despite the nickname, footballs are made of leather, not pigskin. footballs are referred to as "pigskins" because early soccer (or maybe rugby) balls were made from inflated pig bladders. Apparently, the name stuck, and everyone from pee-wee players to broadcasters now calls footballs pigskins.

The official NFL football is made by Wilson Sporting Goods. The factory is in Ada, Ohio where the footballs are still made of genuine leather and are made by hand.

Nerf footballs were first made in 1972. This was introduced after a polyeurethane ball was developed by Park Brothers in 1969, with a diameter of 4 inches.

Footballs were actually made out of a pig's bladder. They used pig's bladders because they were durable, easy to inflate, accessible and relatively round in shape.

Footballs have better grips than others because of the material they are made out of. A football that is made out of leather will have a better grip than a football that is made out of nylon.
