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 to this rule is the goalkeepers, who are the only players permitted to use their hands, as those players have to protect the goal. If the ball touches another player's hands, it counts as a foul and the particular player will be penalised. 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]
