  • Rank
  1. Bala Sport is a Glasgow based Fairtrade sports balls co-operative. They're balls are high quality, made to FIFA standards and ideal for walking football. Bala provide match balls for the Homeless World Cup and are the official match ball of the Scottish Futsal League. Discounts are available for walking football clubs and venues. When you choose a Fairtrade ball from Bala Sport you know the workers in developing countries are treated fairly and benefit from the extra 10% Fairtrade Premium. This fund gets invested in projects like water purification plants, not just for workers, but for the use of anyone in the community who can benefit from free, safe drinking water.
  2. We'd like to introduce ourselves to clubs and venues. As a walking football player you will know all about the importance of respect for players and fans that the FA and SFA etc are keen to encourage. Well Bala Sport, the only UK based maker of Fairtrade Certified footballs takes that respect further - to the workers in developing countries that make that crucial piece of the kit, the ball. We make sure that the men and women who make our balls get a fair deal, fair rates of pay, work in safe conditions and get access to union representation. They also benefit form the Fairtrade Premium, and extra 10% cash sum we pay them and which they invest democratically in social development projects. These include free eye and diabetes tests, free, safe transport to and from work, free school books and backpacks for their kids and water purification plants. The clean water facilities provide free, safe drinking water anyone in the community, not just workers as they are built outside the factory gates. Our balls are not just about changing the lives of the workers that make them, but about quality equipment for you. Our Team, Astro and Pro balls are all hand stitched for durability and made and tested to FIFA equivalent standards. Bala Sport balls were chosen by the SFA as the ball of the Bank of Scotland Midnight League, and are the official ball of the Scottish Futsal League. The Homeless World Cup was played with Bala Sport specially developed Astro balls. We can offer clubs and venues special discounted rates on all our balls and can even make customised balls (minimum order 50).
