Play Fair 2008
Play Fair 2008 is an international campaign leading up to the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing,
China aimed at pushing for the respect of workers’ rights in the global sporting goods industry.  
The Playfair Alliance recognizes that an end to the present exploitation and abuse in sportswear
and athletic footwear industries can only really be brought about when governments assume their
responsibilities to protect workers rights and hold business accountable for labour practices, and
when workers are able to organize in order to advance their own interests.

Sporting bodies such as the International Olympic Committee, through their licensing
arrangements, and the totality of those companies which market or produce sportswear, athletic
footwear and other sporting goods can take far greater responsibility for the labour practices in this
industry than they do now.  Play Fair pushes these bodies for respectful and fair labour practices.
