Wilson to Serve as Official Soccer Ball of the OHSAA in Fall 2018

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio High School Athletic Association is proud to announce that Wilson Sporting Goods will provide the official soccer ball of the OHSAA, Executive Director Dr. Dan Ross has announced. Wilson has been the OHSAA’s official football partner for many years and provides the official game ball that is used in all OHSAA tournaments.

“We are pleased to have this opportunity to work with Wilson as the Official Soccer Ball of the OHSAA,” Dr. Ross said. “We highly value the relationship that we have with Wilson and the excellent products that they provide, which our member schools, coaches and student-athletes enjoy using throughout the tournaments.”

“The OHSAA’s dedication to young athletes across the state is tremendous and mirrors our own love of sports,” said Kevin Murphy, General Manager, Team Sports, Wilson. “We look forward to working with OHSAA towards further enriching their soccer programs and supporting coaches and students as they pursue their athletic goals.”

The Wilson Forte FYBrid II Soccer Ball is the official soccer ball of the OHSAA tournament for the 2018-19 school year. Key features include:

· Engineered geometric contact zones for more controlled, precise strikes with predictable ball flight.

· A technologically-advanced ball cover that offers players more control, and that minimizes water and moisture absorption for extended durability.

· A high-tech bladder that ensures a balanced, round shape with explosive rebound acceleration.

Junk ball. Has been for the NCAA, no different now.

What ball do you recommend? Nike no longer provides the ball that has been used and the NFHS requires that any ball used must have their stamp on it.

That's the biggest issue with it. No reason for this requirement of "stamp."

I agree but the NFHS is rule making body for all high school associations and the OHSAA needs to follow their requirements. Most officials do not check for the stamp and teams generally use whatever ball they want during the season. The Wilson is only the official ball for the Regional and State level of the tournament and it is certainly better than the Nike ball that has been used.

Does anyone know the cost of these balls? I have checked with a couple of vendors and they do not carry the balls. Will there be special deals on these? League rules state in our league that whatever ball contract OHSAA enters into that will be our league ball. Trying to find good deal.

Wilson Ball
 
it's available for $99.99 at BSNSports less your school discount. The Under Armour Desafio 595 soccer ball has the NFHS stamp, as a regular season alternative.
