The Ultimate Guide to Football Equipment


If you love the game of football and have a passion for playing and/or watching, this is the guide for you. This comprehensive guide to the football equipment the team here at Battle Sports recommends to continually improve your game. We offer lots of fun equipment to make your training more effective, improve your techniques, and help you be a better team player.

To play football, you’ll want to wear appropriate clothing and footwear, such as our hoodies and a pair of cleats, to help you move easily and safely on the field. If you are gearing up to play during spring practice, you may also be required to wear protective gear, such as pads or a helmet. Finally, you may want to bring along some water and a towel to stay hydrated and cool during the game.

Protect Your Pearly Whites with a Battle Mouthguard

Mouthguards are an important piece of safety equipment in football because they help to protect the teeth and mouth from injury. During the course of a game, players may receive hard hits or tackles that can cause the head and jaw to snap back and forth, potentially damaging the teeth or causing other injuries to the mouth. A Battle mouthguard can help to absorb some of the shock and reduce the risk of injury to the teeth and mouth. In addition, a football mouthguard can help to reduce the risk of concussions by helping to absorb some of the impact to the head. It is generally recommended that all football players wear a mouthguard to help protect their teeth and mouth from injury while playing.

Get a Grip with our Sticky Football Gloves

Football gloves are worn by many players to help improve their grip on the ball and to help protect their hands from injury. Our Battle gloves feature UltraTack palm with a sticky surface on the palms and fingers which helps the player to grip the football more securely. This can be especially important for players who handle the ball frequently, such as receivers and running backs, as it can help to reduce the risk of drops and fumbles. In addition, Battle football gloves can help to protect the hands from abrasions and other injuries that may be caused by contact with the ground or other players.

Welcome Rivals to the Gun Show with Our Arm Sleeves

Arm sleeves are a common piece of football equipment that are worn by many players. They are typically made of stretchy, moisture-wicking fabric and are worn over the lower arm and elbow. There are a few main reasons why football players may choose to wear a Battle sleeve:

  1. Compression: Football arm sleeves can provide compression to the muscles in the lower arm and elbow, which can help to improve blood flow and reduce muscle fatigue.

  2. Protection: Arm sleeves can provide some protection to the lower arm and elbow from scrapes, cuts, and other minor injuries.

  3. Warmth: Arm sleeves can help to keep the muscles warm which can be beneficial in cold weather.

  4. Sun protection: Arm sleeves can help to protect the skin from the sun's harmful UV rays, which can be especially important for players who spend a lot of time outdoors.

  5. Style: Football players may also wear Battle arm sleeves simply for the style and fashion aspect.


Let Your Gear Speak for you with Battle Back Plates

Football back plates provide protection, comfort, improved performance, and confidence. Let’s dive further into these:

The most obvious benefit of a Battle back plate is the protection it provides to the back.

A back plate can help to absorb some of the impact and reduce the risk of injury.

Our back plates fit well and are designed to be comfortable to wear so you can feel more at ease on the field and perform your best. Football back plates are essential for players of all levels. They should be worn by everyone on the field, whether you're a quarterback or a cornerback.
