Owned by every football team world-wide

A football is an inflated ball that is often spherical and white with a lot of black dots[1] and is used in the game of the same name. The players of each football team have to score goals with the ball by using any anatomy part of the body, except for the hands. The only exception for that rule is the goalkeeper, who is the only player permitted to use his hands, as this player has to protect the goal. If the ball touches another player's hands, it counts as a foul and the particular player will be punished. Continuity in touching the ball can sometimes lead to the yellow card and the red card.

A punctured football was amongst the discarded Portkeys that Harry Potter observed when he first arrived at the campgrounds for the 1994 Quidditch World Cup.[2]
