Ada’s Wilson Factory Churning Out Super Bowl Footballs

1/30/18 – 4:27 A.M.

For the 52nd straight year, footballs used in the Super Bowl will come from northwest Ohio. Workers at the Wilson factory in Ada have already turned out thousands of balls that will be used Sunday in Minneapolis and they’re not done yet. Each ball is still cut, stamped and stitched by hand by more than 130 workers at the factory.
