Official Ball Providers
Chryso have been supplying the most technologically advanced match balls to clubs and leagues across the UK & Ireland since 2002.
Their engineers continually strive to push the boundaries of match ball technology. The innovation of new PU combined with the latest laminates result in higher consistency and more reactive match balls.
The polyurethane outer coating is specifically imported from Japan, and the inner laminate is precision bonded to provide maximum strength and elasticity. The highest grade butyl significantly reduces the rate of pressure loss in the bladder. This quality and consistency is evident every time a Chryso ball is struck.
With this level of experience and expertise, Chryso engineers are able to design and manufacture a ball to suit any playing conditions. Balls are made lo-response or hi-response in order to effect energy transfer and ball speed. Seam positions are 3-D modelled and adjusted to provide different trajectories.

The Daniel Wilkinson Foundation, is a charity setup in memory of Daniel who died on the 12th September 2016, aged 24, playing the game he loved, from an underlying heart condition called Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC).
ARVC is an inherited condition that causes the replacement of cardiac muscle with fibrous, fatty tissue. This causes the walls in the heart chamber to become thin and stretched, impacting how the blood is pumped around the body and causing abnormal heart rhythms which can lead to Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD).
ARVC can be found in one in 1,000 to 5,000 young adults. SCD is the leading cause of death in young athletes during sport and the majority of deaths occur with no prior symptoms or family history.
