Fairtrade Balls

Bala Sport is growing its reputation among schools and clubs for high quality ethical footballs. This reputation is based on quality of product and the distinctive look, designed in the UK. All of our balls carry the Fairtrade Mark. It takes time to ensure the right quality of ball, but coming soon are; Bala Fairtrade certified netballs, volley balls, footgolf and hockey balls. These are all currently being tested and will be available for sale in the autumn (2016) with rugby balls to follow. We also do Fairtrade customised balls – so tell us what you want!

Bala Fairtrade balls are made and tested to the same standards that FIFA use. The really good thing is though that when workers are paid to make a Fairtrade Bala ball they benefit from the extra 10% Fairtrade Premium, and they decide democratically on what social development schemes to spend it on – so it’s  win-win for all.

The Fairtrade Foundation Schools Team have made a great educational video on Fairtrade football production in Pakistan. In it you will learn all about the Fairtrade Premium as well as seeing our Bala balls being made.
