About us

Lionstrike is a brand of footballs that are specifically designed for kids. Our footballs are at least 25% lighter than standard footballs and these are much easier for children to kick.

Our footballs encourage kids to kick with the right technique, thereby developing the right skills from an early age and also making football more fun!

Because the footballs are lighter, they also don't hurt as much when heading the ball. This helps develop the right heading techniques when children are ready to do so. 

Take a look at the table below to compare our footballs with standard weight footballs:



Lionstrike 210 210g 312-340g 3-7 years
Lionstrike 260 260g
7-14 years

Our footballs are standard circumference, which is recommended to be 58cm for size 3 balls and  63.5cm-66cm for size 4 balls.
