Inspiring City Award Finalist

In the Running for the Inspiring City Awards 2016

Although  we’ve yet to actually win an award, Bala Sport is proud to have been shortlisted in two relevant competitions so far.

2016 Inspiring Glasgow Awards

It’s an honour to have been shortlisted in the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce Inspiring City Awards.


It’s through exposure and recognition through the spotlight shone from awards like these that we can raise awareness of our products and workers and impact on them by increased sales. As a co-operative we are proud of our organisational structure and our 114 member investors in our community benefit society. We’re also very proud of the workers in Pakistan who make our balls, and it is they who deserve to be recognised for making great quality Fairtrade balls

The ceremony for the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce/ Herald Events Inspiring City Awards takes place on 8th September. We’re up against our friends at the Homeless World Cup and Street Soccer Scotland as well as two other great s organisations in the Sport category; Glasgow Eagles Multi Sports Club and the Glasgow Tigers Speedway. So whether we win or not, it’s just great to be included with these other organisations. Watch this space for the result.

Cooperative Congress awards (June 2016)

There was strong competition in the Inspiring Co-operative category back in June and alas we were pipped to the post by the very deserving Riverside Housing Co-operative who offer affordable housing.
