Brand Message“FOOTBALL FOR ALL PEOPLE”
If there is a “ball,” it will make us excited and connected to the world.
We create a lot of smiles around the world with balls.
We’re challenging to make the world better and enriched with a “ball.”
Fair-trade PolicyWe are dedicated to making a positive impact in people’s lives through football.
There is a child labor problem in football factories around the world with about 168
million children forced to manufacture footballs. In Pakistan, which has the largest
number of football-producing factories in the world, many children can’t afford an
SFIDA’s factory in Pakistan however provides fair-wages and a secure environment for
our workers. We are dedicated to keep fair business practices with no child labor, aided
by regular assessments by international organizations.
The more income parents make, the more children can afford having education instead
of being forced to work. We believe the best way to fight against for child labor is to
provide appropriate income and environment to employees working in our factory.
Every child goes to school in SFIDA’s factory. It’s our promise.
