ADA, Ohio (AP) — While the players in the upcoming Super Bowl may be based out of San Francisco and Kansas City, the balls used in February’s big game come from a plant in Ohio.

The village of Ada is home to the Wilson Sporting Goods factory that makes footballs used by the NFL, many of the nation’s top college teams, high schools, and more.

The Wilson brand says every offensive point scored in an NFL game since 1941 was with one of the company’s footballs.

More than 100 people work in the factory and make 3,000 to 4,000 footballs daily.
