The Molten brand was established in the UK in 2003 and is exclusively distributed in the UK and Ireland by the Unicorn Group.
Products include footballs, basketballs, netballs, volleyballs, waterpolo balls, dodge balls, handballs and korfballs, as well as a range of sports accessories.
Molten is the world's leading ball manufacturer and an internationally recognised brand. It is renowned world-wide for the exceptional quality of its ball products and its advanced technical know-how. This is reflected in the many international competitions and tournaments in which Molten balls are the official game balls.
For example, the Molten G-Series basketball is the official game ball for all FIBA international event’s worldwide up to 2016; while many of the Molten balls, from soccer balls to volleyballs, carry international federation approval including that of FIFA, FIBA, FIVB and IHF.
The Unicorn Group acquired the UK and Ireland distribution of Molten Sports in 2012 and Bob Hope, the ex-professional basketball coach and GB Olympic basketball team manager who introduced Molten to the UK, remains a consultant.
