This ball has graced every stadium, every field, and is responsible for every touchdown in the NFL® since 1941. "The Duke" is legendary and is the essential football to play like the pros do.
Named in honor of football icon Wellington "Duke" Mara, the deep pebbled leather, classic "Duke" pattern, and firmer texture allows for an increased grip on the ball and unbeatable durability. Double laces offer added texture and control. A three-ply bladder ensures better air retention and moisture control, with a multi-layered lining structure giving the ball a better shape and a long-lasting performance.
Each ball is inspected by hand and passes the same specifications as all the balls used in NFL® play do. It is an official size and weight game ball.
