UNDP Shop Exclusive: SDGs Soccer Ball
Our soccer balls are special. And that’s not just because they have the SDGs on them!
They were designed by a Danish youth soccer coach named Majken Gilmartin. Earlier in her career, Gilmartin saw that many young players would get fatigued easily when they started playing with a larger ball.
That’s why she designed a ball that would be more ergonomic, especially for women of all ages. The ball is a bit lighter and smaller than a professional-size ball. It’s also made of softer materials for extra bounce, and has a protective outer layer made out of polyurethane.
The result is a long-life soccer ball that causes fewer strains and injuries. And that means you can score a lot more Goooooooalllss! for the Sustainable Development Goals.
