Super Bowl LIV is set for Kansas City and San Francisco. All they need now are the official Super Bowl footballs.

Wilson footballs have been the official ball for the NFL's biggest game since 1941. They're made in this factory outside Dayton, Ohio.

First, the leather is carefully selected and cut into panels. The panels are then stamped with foil logos and stitched together. The seams are smoothed out and the ball is stitched up before being packed for shipping.

Each team will receive 108 balls and everyone meets the NFL's rigorous standards.

Now, it's just a question of which balls will see action in the biggest game of the year.
