Sensational 1- a soccer ball revolution

The debate over equal rights in sports may be heating up again. With female athletes two to eight times more likely to suffer a sports injury, coaches around the world have criticized the focus in youth sports on performance rather than injury prevention and game development.
Sensational Football, a progressive company now going worldwide with Sensational 1, a new women’s soccer ball. At 12 ounces and 26 inches circumference (360 grams, 67 cm) the ball is lighter than the traditional size 5 ball currently used in football (a ball developed to men). Sensational 1 is calculated by scientists to make sure we ended up with the most suitable and perfect ball for wom-en. It is supported by the Danish Football Association. It is currently being used in games in Denmark, Germany and Sweden.

bold Just as important as cutting down injuries is the ability to create a faster and more fun game for the players and the audience. More goals from the distance, more skills performed on the field, could turn women’s football into a TV darling. According to research conducted by Silke Sinning, a leading professor from the Institute for Sports Sciences at the University of Koblenz-Landau in Germany, 66% of the test players thought the Sensational 1 ball performed better than the Adidas Jabulani, the official match ball of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ in South Africa (a ball equivalent to the women’s Speedcell ball, used at the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany).

The Sensational 1 ball has been tested for performance since 2008. We know we are up against some huge players.. But since they seem not to care so much about the girls – we will embrace the battle and trust that women of today dare to say "we want to be treated special, we want the best equipment to develop our skills, we want to have fun without the fear of injuries – like you would ever give Messi a ball 7 without people around him going through the roof.
