So I guess that you are here because you are looking to find out the best footballs for under £10 that you can purchase today.
You want to go out playing football with your buddies.
However, you are on a budget and don’t want to spend too much on a football.
Now don’t get wrong, if you are paying for quality, and a ball that costs, let’s say £100, will be more robust and will be made of better material.
But that’s not to say that a £10 football won’t be suffice.
Because if all your looking for is a ball that will do the job, then most footballs will provide that for you.
In this post, I am going to go over 7 of the best footballs you can get for £10, as well as links that will direct you straight to them.

The first ball is Mitre, which is a brand that specializes in football.
Growing up playing Sunday league, it was Mitre balls I used for the games. There good quality and great to play with.
It is called the Mitre Training Football, which is currently the #1 best seller on Amazon.
You can get it in either white, blue, orange, or yellow.
These footballs are made to adapt to all weather conditions.
Especially with a machine-stitched TPU football which means it will feel nice to kick it.
So whether you have rented out the local Astro or going on the local pitches, which may be heavy to kick a ball on then, this could be a great pick up for you.
Now I know it's not quite the champions league, but you get the graphics and design of the second biggest European domestic competition on the ball with this ball.
The yellow, almost zig-zag lines are cool, and overall the ball is designed well.
It also features machine-stitched material, as a synthetic rubber on the ball's bladder.
Suitable for use on both grass and astroturf, you can use it on multiple surfaces.
I was surprised by researching footballs because despite being an official ball, it only costs £10 to purchase.
If you are a fan of the Europa league or even support a team playing in the competition, it could be worth getting this ball for a cheap cost.
While Nike, for the most part, is an expensive brand, there was one football that caught my eye, and that is the Nike Pitch Team football.
What caught my eye was not only the quality look of the ball but the rather low price of £7.95 that it is currently on sale for.
There isn’t much difference between this ball and the other ones Nike has on offer, in my opinion.
You have the regular swoosh that is featured in the center of the ball.
It also has a smooth, durable casing that helps move the ball around fast.
Overall it’s a top ball for a good price.
The one above is white; however, you can also get green, orange, red, and yellow depending on your preference.
Nike also does some higher quality footballs, which are used in the top divisions, you can find them on this complete gear post.
The first Adidas ball to emerge on this list is the Tiro Club football. It’s another good quality football that you can purchase for a low price.
This one is a solar yellow and black football that works really well for this particular Adidas football.
It is well constructed and made of durable synthetic.
This means you will be able to play on most surfaces, but it is designed to last.
Overall this is a great football, and I am again surprised that you can get this ball for less than £10 at the moment.
Switching another popular brand within football, you have the Puma TeamFINAL.
This ball features the classic puma logo on the face and a cool black and red pattern.
If you are on the lookout for a football, this is a solid option.
It features a durable casing means it will be good to go when playing in various conditions.
Something that stood out with the PumaTeamFINAL is the positive reviews for the ball.
I found people saying how the ball gave them a great experience and lasted months.
All qualities you love to see, but at the same time, you wouldn’t associate with a ball that is less than ten pounds. So it’s safe to say this one is great value for your money.
6. Mitre Retro Ball
If your ideal football is a basic look, then Mitre is likely the one for you.
While completely white apart from the logo, this ball has a classy look about them that makes it stand out.
It takes inspiration from the Ultimax, a ball released by Mitre 25 years ago.
It is one of the most popular balls to be released with that ball because it is such a classic.
However, between you and me, I am leaning towards the new Mitre Retro Ball.
There is something about that clean look and the stylish Mitre font that does it for me.
Right now, you can get this ball for exactly £10.
7. Diamond Icon
The last football on this list sees what may be an unfamiliar football to you from a brand named Diamond.
This model is called the Diamond Icon, and not only is it under £10, but it’s closer to £5, with it being £6.50 right now.
While it’s the cheapest ball on this list by far, it’s one I rate, having brought a few of them years ago.
I brought both the yellow and the red ones, which I had a good experience with.
When I used them, I practiced shooting and found that doing knuckleball and finesse shots were especially effective.
They were great until I, unfortunately, lost both of them. However, if I find myself looking for a cheap ball in the future, this will be one I will look at buying.
How To Find Cheap Footballs?
Finding cheap footballs is easier than you would think.
What I recommend doing is going to your favorite retailer, going on the football section before sorting by low to high.
Not only will you see the cheap balls, but you will be able to find ones that are on offer and were previously at a much higher price.
This enables you to find a good standard of footballs for prices that give you great value.
Other ways to find cheap footballs include:
- Carboot sales
- Second-hand sites (e.g., Facebook groups, eBay, etc.)
- Entering competitions (e.g., Instagram giveaways)
Are Cheap Footballs Worth The Price?
I was discussing something similar in my latest post, where I discussed expensive football boots.
Ultimately when it comes to almost everything, the more you pay, the more you get in terms of quality.
So just like boots, the balls that are over £100 will come with the latest technology and will be made of the best materials available.
Footballs are made though to support different budgets, which means no matter if you have a few pounds or a hundred quid to spend, you can buy one.
From my experience, though, I have found them to do the job and be perfectly fine to play with from using cheaper footballs.
Now and then, you will buy one that lasts a month or two before getting a puncture.
However, all in all, most cheap footballs I think are worth the price, especially the ones I have highlighted on this page.
What priced ball you purchase all depends on your budget, your need for a ball, how much you will use it, and many other factors.
There you have it, the best seven footballs for under £10 that you can purchase today, in my opinion.
For all the balls I have listed, they are all ones I recommend. Being a footballer who plays week in week out, I have also had the chance to play with a number of them myself.
If you like their look and you are thinking of arranging a kick about with your mates, then feel free to check them out.
