Behind the Goals: Bala Sport UK, producing Fair Trade footballs

Date: 1st August 2018

On this week’s Behind the Goals podcast, Angus Coull of Bala Sport talked to us about their campaign for fair trade products in sport. They began with a vision to promote the use of fair trade footballs, but found that there were very few available – so made their own! They now produce footballs, futsal balls, rugby balls, netballs and volleyballs.

Listen to find out the difference that fair trade can make to the lives of the people making these balls, and also find out what you can do to help the Bala Sport mission: buy their balls at www.balasport.co.uk/buy, invest in the company at www.balasport.co.uk/about-bala/bala‚Ķommunity-shares, and spread the word!

Angus also mentioned AS Velasca, who have recently designed their own football. Visit the home of the most artistic football club on the planet at www.asvelasca.it/EN/home.php
