How To Replace A Soccer Ball Valve

The method that I use here has always worked well for me, but I do not take responsibility for my own attempts (especially at Official Match Balls)!

You need:
• new valve
• ball pump

Before you think about changing the valve, you should check if the valve is broken. Instead, the ball could have a hole or you use a too thin ball needle when inflating.


Since there are cold months right now:

When it's cold outside, the air in football contracts. So he makes a flat impression. But if he is back in the warm, everything is as before. Remedy to inflate the ball outside later.

First you assure yourself that the valve is completely visible and not covered to the hole itself.

Now you need the "Puller". He pulls the valve out of your ball. Try to get the valve out as a whole, otherwise it will be very tiring and you can use pliers to pull the valve out piece by piece.

Here I photographed the valve on a bubble from a broken Brazuca with a "Puller" from the inside.

If everything worked, you should now have pulled out the old valve. This is definitely broken now and no longer useful.

Get the new valve ready.

Your ball no longer has a valve. If it happens to contain foreign particles such as tartan particles, you can now try to get them out.

Now you take the "pusher" and press the valve evenly into the ball, until it "locks" in its desired position. If it does not really work, take a spit to moisten the valve from the outside.

Finally, you pump the ball on trial and pray to God that the valve does not fall out! If that is the case, it was either not in the right place or the rubber ring is too small. In this case, I would simply stick the valve tough, then keep everything as it should.

I hope I could help you. If you want, leave me feedback on the contact page, as you can tell with the instructions.
