Buy Derbystar footballs

Before you buy a Derbystar ball it might be interesting to know the story behind the brand. The first Derbystar was produced in 1963 in a small leather factory in Goch (Germany). The company was previously a supplier of other leather products, such as saddles for equestrian sports. This is where the name ‘Derbystar’ originated. Derby’ refers to the company’s roots in equestrian sports and ‘Star’ stands for quality.

After the production of the first ball Derbystar has innovated a lot. For example, the first ball construction of Derbystar consisted of 32 panels while up to that time balls were constructed from 18 panels. Eventually Derbystar switched to a new structure of 20 hexagons and 12 pentagons, with the result that the balls had an improved predictability, reliability and escape behaviour.

The innovation Derbystar was one of the first producers who switched to PU material instead of leather. At the time this was a revolution in the sports world, but the PU material provided many advantages. Derbystar was at this time a major player in the football world and this resulted in a partnership with the German Bundesliga.

The balls of Derbystar were tested in a wind tunnel by the Institute of Health and Sports Sciences at the University of Tsukuba (Japan). The findings were that the 32 panels provide better aerodynamics than any other ball on the market. Hugely important for players to assess the ball correctly.

Finally in 2012 Derbystar reached a historic high of selling more than 1 million balls in one year.
