Fairtrade Football matches
The Global Week World Cup will use Fairtrade footballs
- From: Saturday 2 March 2019, 2 pm
- To: Saturday 2 March 2019, 6 pm
As part of Fairtrade Fortnight, look out for Fairtrade footballs used in the Global Week Football World Cup. Matches take place on Saturday 2nd March at the City Sports Centre.
The Fairtrade footballs help to provide fair pay and safe working conditions, as well as an extra 10% Fairtrade Premium for the workers at Bala Sports’ facilities in India and Pakistan. A Fairtrade committee democratically decides which projects to invest this cash sum in, for example water purification plants, free eye tests and subsidised treatment, fair price shops, free transport to and from work and the provision of free school station for their children.
