They were never really made of pig skin. They just looked like it.
Footballs have better grips than others because of the material they are made out of. A football that is made out of leather will have a better grip than a football that is made out of nylon.
Super Bowl footballs are made of the same leather that is used on the regular season footballs.
1. Leather FootballsLeather footballs are the highest grade footballs and are typically used in game and practice play. Many of the leather footballs are made with a tanning process that makes the ball tacky, so it is easier to grip, particularly when wet. Some leather footballs are also made to resist absorbing moisture, so they can be used in all weather conditions. Leather footballs that are not specified as water proof or water resistant should not be used in wet conditions, as the ball can absorb water becoming heavier and harder to grip. Leather footballs are only intended for use on grass or turf surfaces.2. Composite FootballsComposite or composite leather footballs are made from synthetic leather. These balls tend to cost less than leather footballs. Composite footballs may be used in game or practice situations and are great recreational use. Composite footballs look and feel like leather, but tend to resist moisture better than real leather. They are also often easier to grip, because the composite material usually has more texture. Some composite leather balls have enhanced the grip of the ball even more by making the cover tacky and/or softer. Composite leather footballs tend to be more durable than leather footballs. However, like leather footballs, these balls are generally intended for use on grass or turf surfaces.
