Before You Watch the Super Bowl, Visit ‘The Birthplace of the Football’

While football fans all over the world are gearing up for Super Bowl XLVII, the good people of the tiny town of Ada, Ohio, have been making sure every NFL Super Bowl goes off without a hitch.

Ada is home to the Wilson football factory, the only leather football factory in the world. The factory in Ada, which makes 70,000 footballs a year, also makes the game day ball for the Super Bowl.

The small town has earned the names “The place that makes the Super Bowl possible” and “The Birthplace of the Football.” Learn more about this awesome, football-loving town in the video above.
