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 into their Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts. Here is a list of soccer ball discount deals and pumps as well!

Soccer Ball Discount Deals:

1.  WALMART

Best deal!  Currently, Walmart has a size 4 Franklin Soccer Ball for $4.88 online HERE.  (they do go out of stock quickly! But you can check back often to see if they get new stock)
Blue, Red, or Black or White
– You can order online with Free 2-day shipping on orders over $35
– OR order online and get Free pick up in-store!
Looks like the most you can order at once is 12 – but I think you can then place multiple orders.

2.  FRANKLIN SPORTS

Our friend Jennifer reached out to Franklin Sports to see if she could get a deal if she bought in bulk.  And they responded!  Joshua, a Sale Representative at Franklin Sports is offering this deal on their quality size 4 soccer balls:

A soccer ball can mean so much to a child

Size 4 Black and White Soccer Balls for $4.10 plus shipping:  Normally $9.99 each, BUT purchase a case 60 deflated balls and they will be $4.10 each plus shipping (must be purchased in case lots).  Shipping costs will vary between locales.  They ship from Memphis, TN and estimated shipping (the last time I checked) for a case of 60 balls to Portland, Maine are $45.  This is a good deal if you can purchase it in bulk.  You must contact Joshua directly to get the deal.  (You can mention Jennifer told you about the deal!)  Size 4 is perfect for ages younger through 8-12.  Older age teens would still enjoy a 4 but might require a regulation size 5.  These balls come deflated.

3. AMAZON

The prices at change quickly and products come and go.  As of 1/2020 they have a bulk purchase of 12 size 5 Franklin Sports balls for a good deal and they come with 1 pump.

4.  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 store 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:

Dollar Tree pump good to inflate a soccer ballI 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.  I would suggest purchasing extra “pins” like these from Amazon.  They do break easily and without a pin, you can’t inflate the ball!

These are often very difficult 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!

2.  AMAZON: 

There is a full Franklin Sports Ball maintenance pump kit from Amazon HERE for less than the official FS website.

Again, extra pins are important to include whatever pump you choose.  If you want to purchase just extra pins CLICK HERE from Amazon.

Get free shipping on a $25 order OR snag free 2-day shipping on ANY size order with Amazon Prime (you can sign up for a FREE 30-day trial here). OR, choose free no-rush shipping and get a $5 credit for Prime Pantry OR a $1 credit for eBooks & more – may vary by user.

Where can you Donate NEW Soccer Balls?

Operation Christmas ChildPack a shoebox filled with hygiene items, school supplies and perhaps even a soccer ball!  Here is a wonderful story about a missionary bring 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, “how 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.  For more info check it out HERE.

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.

I hope I was able to help you find some great soccer ball discount deals!  Make sure to check all the bargains and deals I post here at JOY with Purpose!  Don’t miss a sale!
