Abstract: A mathematical model together with simulation data is presented for a soccer ball in flight. This type of sports ball although used in a sport of great popularity has received limited attention within the research community. It is concluded that a relatively simple model can be used in order to simulate key situations during a soccer game. Initial simulation results are presented for a free kick, corner kick and goal kick under various conditions. The results are consistent to previous studies and to the physical principles governing soccer ball motion in the air.
