Technical Information

It's important that young footballers use a ball that's the right size, no matter their age, which is why our design teams have developed the First Kick. Size 3 for children younger than 8 Size 4 for children aged 8 to 12 Size 5 for all other ages. In addition, we have conducted numerous lab tests to guarantee the ball's ability to withstand every hit.
Between 68.5 and 69.5g (Size 5) Between 63.5 and 66g (Size 4) Between 60.5 and 62.5g (Size 3)
Average measured variation: maximum 2%. We measure the football's sphericity at 16 different points and examine the recorded discrepancies. If the discrepancy is greater than 2% (FIFA PRO Standard), our engineers are tasked with improving the sphericity to ensure a consistent bounce.
Maximum pressure loss
We inflate the ball to the recommended pressure (meaning 0.8 bar). 72 hours later, the ball must not lose more than 15% of its pressure, meaning approx. 0.1 bar. The pressure after 72 hours must, therefore, be at approx. 0.7 bar. This also means that it is quite normal for a ball to lose pressure after a few days."
Maximum water absorption
We simulate rainy playing conditions in a lab, leaving the ball to sit in 2 cm of water on a pivoting support whilst subjecting it to 250 compressions. By the end of the test, the ball must not have absorbed more than 20% of its weight, or approx. 80 g for the First Kick in size 5.
Between 125 and 155cm with a maximum difference of 10cm between the ball's highest and lowest bounce. Each ball is dropped 10 times onto a steel plate from a height of 2 metres.
Shape and pressure retention
The most demanding test that this ball is subjected to is the machine shot test. Withstands up to 2500 shots against an inclined concrete surface at 50 km/h from a distance of 2.5 m. At the end of the test, we check: - the ball's general state: stitching must withstand this test - the circumference: it must not have increased by more than 1.5 cm - the sphericity: must not have varied by more than 1.5%. - the air pressure: the ball's loss of pressure must not exceed 0.1 bar
Between 420 and 445 g (Size 5) Between 350 and 390 g (Size 4) Between 310 and 340 g (Size 3)

So in the technical information it clearly states "We inflate the ball to the recommended pressure (meaning 0.8 bar)." Yes I have ordered 30 but at no point during my ordering did it state they would come flat! your description is therefore incorrect - but I have paid the same price for deflated balloons as inflated ones. not happy. so for your ease they are flat but this is not easy for me. So I will be returning them and buy 30 from your shop!

Hi Louise,

Thanks for the review and the feedback. I have spoken to our web team and we will adapt the description so it is clear, and speak to our logistics team to try to find a solution for those who want the balls ready-pumped. How close are you to a store? We'll be happy to pump them up for you if you're able to bring them in. Let me know and I am happy to contact the person you need.

Kind regards,

Its soft material, bought for my 4 year old son, it had got couple of wear patches on first day only, that with few kids of 4 year old kid. It's first time, I disappointed with decatht product.
Response of the brand
Dear Mr. Adish, 

We are really sorry for the inconvenience you have had to face with one of our footballs. 
We designed so the young budding footballers can play/practice basics of football on soft grounds such as natural/artificial grass pitches. If you have been using it on such grounds and find the outer layer to be conceding, please do have it replaced. However, you will find these patches if you use the ball on a hard ground/mud ground as the outer layer is much softer and designed for juniors. If your usage is on such grounds, please try our f100 footballs as they are more compatible. 

Please do write back to us if you have any further queries. 

Digital Football Leader,

Dear Mr. Kevin, 

We are really sorry for the inconvenience you have had to face with our first kick footballs. As a footballer myself, I can understand your disappointment with this matter. 
I would suggest two things based on what I have understood from your email. 
1. You may go with our f100 football rather than the beginner models if your level of play is higher what the first kicks can handle. The first kicks are designed for beginners to learn and practice the basics of football. 
2. If you would still want a size 4 football for juniors. I would suggest the f100 light. It is specially designed and made lighter for kids to play easily.

Please be advised we do not recommend any of these balls on hard ground/mud ground. You may have your defective ball returned at any of our stores and replace it with any of these models. 

Do write back to us if you may need anything else. 

Digital Football Leader,

Hi Rahul,

We are very sorry for the experience you have had with one of our learning footballs. 
This football was designed by our team for kids between 8 & 12 to learn football on fields. If you have been using it for the same purpose, you may replace it at any of our Decathlon stores. However, if your purpose is different, you may choose from our range of footballs as we have footballs which match international match standards as well. 
Please do write back to us if you may need any further help. 

Digital Football Leader,
