As an ideal present for the soccer fan in your life, why not give a fairtrade football?

This terrific 32 panel, size five quality ball has a balanced latex bladder and is fully compliant with official ball standards.

It’s produced by the first company in Pakistan to sign up to a pioneering fair trade scheme. The fairtrade football provides village-based work, which particularly benefits women as they can work part-time close to home.

Each fairtrade football comes stamped with the Fairtrade Foundation label, and is available from the Ethical Superstore, which is packed full of other fun fairtrade goods.
