Premier League football kit gifted to girls by Blackpool FC Community Trust

Girls from five partner schools across Blackpool will receive a brand-new Premier League football kit, as part of the League’s ongoing support for women’s and girls’ football.

The schools applied to receive the kit, which includes 13 outfield sets and one goalkeeper set plus optional Nike 2.0 hijabs, thanks to their involvement in the Premier League Primary Stars programme with Blackpool FC Community Trust.

Delivered in partnership with Nike, the Premier League Kit Scheme will see more than 58,000 girls in more than 4,000 primary schools across England and Wales receive the free football kit, featuring the Premier League and No Room For Racism emblems.

Richard Masters, Premier League Chief Executive, said:

“Football is a game that everyone can enjoy, and it has the ability to empower and inspire young people in the classroom, the playground and on the pitch. I hope the girls enjoy their new Premier League kit and that they continue to reap the many benefits that football can bring, both on and off the pitch.”

Celebration Festival

Girls football teams from five schools taking part in Blackpool FC Community Trust’s Premier League Programme will receive Premier League Primary Stars football kit to celebrate their involvement in the programme and commitment to girls’ football.

On Tuesday 5th March we held a celebration festival for the five schools to attend to show off their new kits. The festival was held for the girl’s football teams in year five and six from Roseacre Primary, Stanley Primary, Moor Park Primary, Hawes Side Academy, and St Kentigern’s Catholic Primary Schools. The players enjoyed a fantastic sunny morning of lots of football to show off their new football kits together.

Simon Smith – Primary PE Manager, Blackpool FC Community Trust said,

“It has been an absolute pleasure to be able to give back to some schools who have been brilliant partner with us over the past few years. Within these schools not only do we support a lot of PE delivery, but we have delivered numerous workshops around topics such as anti-discrimination, social action, and bullying.

The headteachers and school leaders also share our understanding of the local football club being embedded within the community and the schools within it, creating a legacy for lifelong attachment to the club.

I would also like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to all our partner schools for all their continued support.”

Shaun Kellett – Pastoral Lead, Moor Park Primary School said,

“Thanks to you and your team for a brilliant football festival. All our girls never stopped talking about it. They loved every minute about it, and they never took their medals off all day!” 

The Kit Scheme is just one element of the Premier League’s primary school education programme, Premier League Primary Stars, and builds upon the 7,000 free football kits that have already been given away via the Premier League’s primary schools programme since 2017. 

Dan Burrows, Senior Director, Nike Social & Community Impact said,

“Nike is delighted to partner with the Premier League on the Kit Scheme for girls. Our work with partners like the Premier League is vital to removing cultural, social and economic barriers to participation, so all young people, especially girls, have an opportunity to benefit from play and sport. Together, we can create an active next generation and a more equitable future for all.”

Launched in 2017 and available to every primary school in England and Wales, Premier League Primary Stars uses the appeal of football to help children to be active and develop essential life skills.

The free primary schools programme enables children to take part in, and enjoy, more football, sport and physical activity, as well as increasing their interest, understanding and confidence in English, PSHE and Maths to support their development of skills and values that are crucial to success in later life. More than 19,000 schools across England and Wales have engaged with the programme to date.

Premier League Primary Stars provides teachers and parents with free downloadable resources across a range of curriculum subjects at Key Stage 1 (age 5-7) and Key Stage 2 (age 7-11), developed by teachers for teachers, and in collaboration with experts such as the National Literacy Trust and the PSHE Association.

Currently, 104 professional football clubs from across the leagues run in-classroom Premier League Primary Stars sessions in local partner schools. More than 68,000 teachers have signed up to access free online national curriculum-linked resources, to date.

The total Premier League investment into the programme, via the Premier League Charitable Fund, is over £60 million, to date.
