The One World Futbol Project has partnered with the RHIEM Group in Germany, making it easier for consumers in Europe, Africa and the Middle East to purchase the One World Futbol.
The One World Futbol is the world’s first nearly indestructible ball that never needs a pump and never goes flat, even when punctured multiple times.
The company sells the ball online through a Buy One, Give One model where for every ball purchased at retail for £33.00, One World Futbol Project gives a second ball to organisations using sport and play to support peace and development programs in disadvantaged communities worldwide.
The company also offers a Give Balls option allowing people who don’t need a One World Futbol to buy balls to give to One World Futbol Project’s growing network of organisations around the globe.
“We unveiled the One World Futbol in July 2010 and over the past three years, retail sales have increased more than 400 per cent," said Arnold Ambiel, chief operating officer, One World Futbol Project.
"We want to better service our growing base of customers in Europe, Africa and throughout the Middle East.
“We chose RHIEM Group as our partner in Europe because of their ability to enable a unique business like ours to establish a European footprint quickly and cost effectively. Working with RHIEM helps ensure that we have a complete, one-stop e-commerce solution that will support our mission to reach the most vulnerable members of society, our children, and ignite their potential through the power of play.”
To date, One World Futbol Project has shipped more than 700,000 One World Futbols across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas enabling sustainable play for an estimated 21 million youth worldwide.
