You get the right size football kit and the right size football boots, so why not get the right size football too? With 10% off all our FORZA Footballs, we’re giving you the lowdown on what size football you should get…


A football is a football, right? Wrong. There’s so much to consider when looking for the right one; whether you need a match football or a training football, a football for astroturf or a football for futsal. But one of the most important things you need to ask yourself is “what size football should I get?”


When it comes to kicking a ball around during a senior football match, the game is always played with a standard size 5 football. However, if you’re looking to get balls for youth matches or for your kids to have a kickabout in the garden you should always look to find the most suitable size for their age group.



The phrase goes ‘don’t run before you can walk’ and the same can be said when it comes to football. It has been discovered that smaller sized balls allow aspiring young footballers to develop all areas of their game and technique without the danger of tripping over one that’s too big for them.


As a rule of thumb, it’s always
best to follow the below guidelines set by The
FA in their Standard Code of Rules for Youth Competition*:

Size 3: Age
groups U7 to U9
Size 4: Age
groups U10 to U14
Size 5: U15s
and above

*It’s always worth checking with your local FA if you’re unsure what size they use.
