FIBA Official Game Ball
This is the exact basketball used in all FIBA tournaments, with the ball making its debut at the 2019 Basketball World Cup. The BG5000 leather basketball can be used when brand new in both practice and games. The new premium leather allows the ball to be used without the need for 'bouncing in'!
The new surface texture gives the ball an optimum grip over traditional pebble grip basketballs, even when in contact with sweat or moisture.
The Original Leather Texture Surface area in contact with the hand is wider by 95% compared to that of conventional pebble surfaces for better grip.

All balls have the correct pressure printed around the valve. Correct ball inflation is important to maintain a technically superior product. Over-inflation will damage the ball. When inflating the ball, with a pump, it is critical that the pump needle is lubricated before insertion.
