ADA, Ohio (WOWO): A northwest Ohio factory has a crucial role to play in this Sunday’s Super Bowl.

The Wilson Sports Goods factory in Ada probably has one of the most important jobs when it comes to prepping for the 50th anniversary of the NFL’s championship game: they make the footballs that will be used by both the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers.

Our partners in news at 21Alive report the factory has made 108 custom balls for each team.

The factory has been making footballs for the NFL for the past 75 years.
