Official Match Ball for the Vancouver International Soccer Festival

For the 4th consecutive year, VOLO Athletics was the Official Match Ball at the Vancouver International Soccer Festival, July 6-8, 2016.

Now in it’s 12th year, the Vancouver International Soccer Festival (VISF) was host to hundreds of athletes, officials, and volunteers who descended on Empire Fields for a tournament that promotes inclusion, respect, and equality.

The VISF is a 7-on-7 World Cup-style soccer tournament that brings together up to 32 women’s and co-ed soccer teams and players from Canada, the U.S.A., local international schools, and multi-cultural communities to celebrate “the beautiful game” and showcase diversity and cultural harmony. Five First Nations teams from BC will also participate.

The VISF is also the only continuing Fairtrade Sporting Event of it’s kind in Canada, meaning Fairtrade goods were used where possible – including Ethical Bean Coffee, Traditional Medincinals Teas, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, Nature’s Path Snack Bars, Discovery Organics bananas, Camino Chocolate, and of course, VOLO Athletics Pro 4 Match Balls.

The principles of fair trade and the Fairtrade City designation held by the City of Vancouver align with the values of inclusion, equality, and respect that are espoused by the Vancouver International Soccer Festival.

“Soccer has an incredible power that can be used to make this world a better place. We work within this powerful platform to promote peace, equality, health, and education for everyone.” ~ Adri Hamael, the Founder and Executive Director of VISF and the One Team for Peace Society
