On September 30, 2010, FLA released a report on an independent assessment of football production in the supply chain of Shanghai Wande Sporting Goods Company in China. The independent investigation was conducted at the request of FLA affiliates Nike, Inc., New Balance and PUMA to determine whether there were subcontracting activities (either authorized or unauthorized) in Wande’s supply chain that might give rise to the use of home workers, underage workers, or even prison labor in the production of soccer balls.
