History is boring? Not in this case: The history of football
It’s quite interesting to have a closer look at the history of the football being a sports equipment. It all started in China, mother country of the most popular sport in the world. Already BC, people used to play with leather balls filled with feathers and animal hair. Later, there were balls made of a net filled with tissue bits. Balls filled with air came up between 220 and 680 AD. After that, nothing interesting happened for ages.
Let’s go on to the 1930s, the time when Argentinians invented balls with ventils. However, the biggest problem was that footballs by then – made of real leather – soaked up water when it rained and became really heavy. So, engineers invented an impregnated finish and later they started to mould fully synthetic footballs. Another important invention in the development of this sports equipment was its shape introduced in 1970: Since that time, a football is an icosahedron – that’s the correct mathematical term for it – made of twelve pentagons and twenty hexagons.

Here, some fun facts about football!
Being a dyed-in-the-wool football fan you might have heard about funny stories concerning footballs. Do you know the highest speed a football every reached? Unbelievable 212 km/h (132 mph) achieved by Brasilian Ronny Heberson Furtado de Araújo. Another funny thing happened in November 2004 in Belgium’s first division. R.S.C. Anderlecht against La Louvière; Anderlecht’s Walter Baseggio scored 1:1 with a nice shoot at the goal from 20 meters. Nothing special – except during its flight the ball exploded but managed to find its way into the goal and the referee had to recognise the goal … the other team wasn’t amused. After the match – Anderlecht won 2:1 – La Louvière entered a protest, followed by months of litigations. Finally, La Louvière’s appeal was rejected.
