A simple gift can bring great joy! One such item is a soccer ball. Throw one into a group of kids anywhere in the world – and you have an immediate game with laughter and competition. Giving a small simple gift can mean the world to a child and their community. Many love to pack a deflated soccer ball and pump in their Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts. Here is a list of soccer ball discount deals and pumps as well!
Soccer Ball Discount Deals:
Sizes 3 and less are mostly just for fun for the little kids. Size 4 is for ages up to teen. Size 5 is teen to adult and for competitive play. Generally, the balls ordered online come deflated which is perfect if you are going to then pack or ship to your ministry. Make sure to purchase pumps and “pins” to inflate the balls. Multiple pins are a good idea since they break often.
Price changes constantly! Currently, Walmart has a 12-pack – size 4 and comes with 1 pump. They seem to do in and out of stock quickly. Even from morning to night, so check often!
Red – Click HERE
Green – Click HERE
White – Size 4 Click HERE
size 5 – costs a little more: Click HERE
For single balls, the price is a little more – Walmart has a size 4 Franklin Soccer Ball online HERE. Or even HERE online. (they also do go out of stock quickly! But check back often to see if they get new stock)
Blue, Red, or Black or White
For everything at Walmart –
– You can order online with Free 2-day shipping on orders over $35 (I often add my personal pantry shopping to get to $35. I love having heavy cat food, or even simple things like flour, sugar, and canned goods delivered!)
– OR if it is offered, you can order online and get Free pick-up in-store!
Their prices change quickly and products come and go. They have a bulk purchase of 12 size 5 Franklin Sports balls for a good deal and they come with 1 pump.
The bulk purchase of 12 size 4 Franklin balls at Amazon costs less and also comes with 1 pump.
Here is a pack of 50 balls – different brand, but has great reviews, and comes with 2 pumps.
While I’ve shown the best deals for today, listings and sellers come and go so quickly at Amazon, check here for all they offer for SOCCER BALLS IN BULK
3. 5 BELOW:
5Below stores often carry name-brand size 4 and size 5 Soccer Balls (and many other sports balls) during the summer and fall. Speak to the manager, as they have often stored the deflated balls in the back room.
Deals on Soccer Ball Pumps:
Whichever soccer ball discount deals you find, you will need to include a pump (and extra pins).
1. DOLLAR TREE:
I like these RED pumps at Dollar Tree. I’ve gotten them several times and have been happy with them. Many others have reported back to me that they have tested them out and also approve of the quality. These are often very hard to find in the store (do NOT get the BLUE pumps as they are more suited for balloons), so order them online and have them shipped to your store for free. or to your home for a small shipping fee.
For a bulk set of 50, CHECK HERE
For a very special quality pump, here is a full Franklin Sports Ball maintenance pump kit from Amazon.
I would suggest purchasing extra “pins” like these from Amazon. They do break easily and without a pin, you can’t inflate the ball!
Where can you Donate NEW Soccer Balls?
Operation Christmas Child: Pack a shoebox filled with hygiene items, school supplies, and perhaps even a soccer ball! Here is a wonderful story about a missionary bringing soccer supplies to a Syrian refugee camp – Check it out HERE.
Charity Ball: Ethan King was only 10 when he was playing soccer with a group of children in Mozambique when it hit him, he says, “So much joy a single soccer ball could bring.” After a couple of kids showed him their soccer balls, made of balled-up trash bags and twine, he said: “I felt really bad knowing that I had seven soccer balls in my garage back home and these kids didn’t even have one or have access to buy one.” Ethan began Charity Ball: a global soccer charity fueled by kids, fans, and athletes who believe that giving back and playing for something bigger can make the world more beautiful.

Only have used equipment?
Do you have soccer balls, cleats, etc. that are collecting dust in your garage? Did you know some organizations that would LOVE them?
Peace Passers lets you donate used soccer equipment – there are drop-off locations all over the US! WOW! They will then donate them to local community groups that have limited access to proper gear. For more info check it out HERE.
Kids in Haiti often play soccer barefoot, kicking around plastic bottles or tin cans if they can’t find a ball. One of the biggest ways you can help is to donate new and lightly used soccer equipment. You could donate them to Goals for Haiti. For more info check it out HERE.
