Fairtrade Footballs - Lets Make Them Official

With fairtrade and enviornmental issues being on everyones mind in the 21st Century it\'s about time the BIG companies started to show their support. In Pakistan, the home of football stiching a project has been underway for sometime to provide Fairtrade Footballs. The workers are paid a living wage, supplied with health care if they need it. In all the workers are paid what they are worth, a life outside of poverty. However Fifa, the governing body of football do not yet use these balls in their official competitions. Lets put the pressure on Fifa to make these balls official for ALL professional level football matches


Fifa are the governing body of Association Football across the world. Headed by Sepp Blater, Fifa are responsible for the game at all levels including the formation and clarification of the Laws of The Game. Whatever happens in the game comes from Fifa and this is our chance to influence the game AND triumph for Fairtrade. http://www.fifa.com/

    Comments: The "beautiful game" is seen these days as one of the greediest, dirtiest, most excessive and capitalistic industries. That football players should be paid millions every year while those who make their equipment are subject to practically slave-labour conditions disgraces the game even further. Using Fairtrade footballs for all pro matches would be a significant step in the right direction.
