Big Game Footballs


Each fall, our footballs sail across college stadiums and get spiked into end zones all over the country. No company on the planet ships more FBS college game balls than Big Game does. Now, in addition to shipping them to collegiate teams nationwide, we’ve made college game balls available to diehard fans! Our collegiate footballs are the exact same balls the teams play with on Fridays and Saturdays, and they are a truly unique collectible. Whether tossing the pigskin at tailgates or using it as a display piece, our college footballs never disappoint.

These days, we’re nationally recognized for our college and high school footballs, but that’s not where we began. Big Game was founded when our owner Chris Calandro wanted to customize a few footballs as gifts but was turned down by the large football manufacturers because his order was too small. The reputation we built by creating custom footballs has opened many doors for us, but those custom orders to commemorate special occasions are still some of our personal favorites.
