Soccer Balls for U.S. Embassies
Unpoppable Balls + Unstoppable Play for the World's Youth
In many lesser-developed countries, children play with ordinary soccer balls that quickly deflate. Thanks to a variety of sports diplomacy initiatives by U.S. Embassies and Consulates, roughly 2.1 million youth have already been positively impacted through the use of 72,000 unpoppable One World Futbols.
Our durable, custom-branded One World Futbol is ideal for Embassies working to empower kids in these countries. When you purchase balls, you will:
* champion sport by bringing valuable resources to youth who need them
* spotlight your work and the organizations you support
* engage Embassy staff and the local community to make an impact
* increase awareness about sports as a tool for development and social inclusion
Custom-cap balls take four months from invoice payment to delivery in geography. Price does not include fees related to shipping; Embassies handle importation clearance/fees
* 10-100 balls for $20/ball
* 101-2,200 balls for $19/ball
* 2,200+ balls for $17/ball
