How Football equipment is made

The process


First of all you have to inflate a rubber bladder and then coat it in cow hide hide(which is cut from the bend of the cow hide which is the strongest part). Then you sew the leather pieces together and close them with the plastic or string laces.


Helmets consist of a plastic shell filled with rubber, gel, or foam padding. Helmets gave about 8 holes in them for ventilation(depending on the model).

Every piece of equipment matters


Pads are a plastic layer with a layer of foam underneath. Pads disperse the impact between the layers to lessen the blow of hits.


Pants are made of pretty much all spandex but have pads on the thighs and on the knees to lessen impact even more and to prevent scrapes.
