Lion plays with a new kind of soccer ball to prove it’s indestructible

Dec 12, 2012 By Abraham

The guys behind the One World Futbol Project have designed a new kind of soccer ball that they hope to get into the hands of as many kids as possible around the world.

What’s special about this ball?

Unlike any inflatable ball on the market, the One World Futbol never needs a pump and never goes flat, even if punctured. The ball is made using state-of-the-art technology that requires no stitching and is designed to have the same rebound characteristics as a traditional soccer ball. It’s the same size and weight as a standard soccer ball…

The One World Futbol is ideal for any playing surface, not just grass or regulation soccer fields: indoors, on concrete, on blacktop, on grass, on a beach, on dirt, or even on a rocky field. The ball can withstand the harshest conditions without deflating.

And to prove the ball’s durability, they left it in the lion exhibit at the Johannesburg Zoo for two days…

    This is pretty amazing! And an awesome idea! Many kids can’t afford to buy a new football, when theirs gets punctured. I know I couldn’t! And I don’t really belong to the poor!

      Yeah! Poor/sick people don’t deserve to have any fun! If only I could teach them math. Then they probably wouldn’t be poor any more….

    I want to know if the person just makes remarks or actually goes out and does something to help on their own? Making remarks is easy, blaming people also easy
