Our Humble Beginnings

Born in Sweden in 1996, we began playing football at just four years of age. Yeah, we were that young! But even in our tiny football jerseys and kid-sized cleats, discovering football was like recovering a lost limb we didn’t even know we missed. It became part of who we were, both as brothers and individuals. Even at such a young age, we fell in love with football.

The Injury

Fast-forward to age 15. At this point, we have over 10-years of experience mastering our game and technique, and simply put— we are loving every minute of it. But something uncanny happens. Within three weeks of each another, both of us suffered career-changing knee injuries— the same one, but on opposite knees — forcing us to undergo surgery within 24-hours from one another.

Thanks to our earth-shattering ailment, we had to stay off the pitch for 1-year while we recovered.

The recovery

To say our recovery was difficult would be an understatement. Sitting on the sidelines during a lengthy and exhausting rehab, we had to watch as our friends continued to play football and better their talent, all while hobbling around on crutches. Little did we realize that our injuries were going to alter the course of our lives forever!

One month after receiving our surgery, we were given the green light to play football in a low-key setting, basically just out on the street. Our restrictions required us to explore new talents, and it was on the streets outside our home that our passion for football freestyle was founded.

Hours turned into days which turned into weeks of us practicing our crazy moves. Fueled by our love for football and our passion for landing every trick, we soon grasped that we were doing something game-changing.

The beginning

Sitting at our kitchen table, we knew we needed to share what we were discovering about ourselves with the world. We needed something to call ourselves. Jakob said, “What about SkillTwins?” And from that moment, nothing has been the same!

To achieve this, we train hard every day, attend many events, teach skills at camps, play Panna Games with our fans and even coaching other football teams.

What is the SkillTwins personality about?

We want to spread joy, positive energy, and inspire everyone that we encounter. As you will see in any of our videos, we are energetic and we hope that shines through in everything we do.

Like kinetic magnets, we have a symbiotic relationship that allows us to work well together in our shared passion. Basically, we balance each other out. Jakob is a little bit more creative and Josef is a little bit stricter. Yes, we’re identical twins, but we’re best friends. Together we’re the ultimate skill duo!

What makes our style unique?

Many could argue that our passion for football morphed into an obsession. Either way, we have made it our mission to master every element of the football possible.

So, what now?

Despite playing for over a decade, we could always feel something was missing. Over time, we’ve used many different balls, but none of them ever fulfilled our expectations— a ball made for football, street and freestyle, playable in any surface. The market didn’t offer it, so we created the SkillBall - for us and for you too.

Well we say, “Enough is enough!” Answering the call, we created our SkillBall from scratch, and simply put, we’re obsessed with it.
