Premium British lifestyle brand, Lyle & Scott, has launched its biggest campaign to date - a new global initiative supporting grassroots football.

Kits for Clubs pays tribute to the brand’s historical connections to football by supplying free, bespoke football kits to amateur teams and small clubs across the world.

Beginning with a seven-figure investment in the first year, the campaign will grow to offer new kits to tens of thousands of grassroots football players all over the globe.

The campaign is a response to the astronomical finances of modern game, with the gap between grassroots and professional football getting wider witch each passing season. Lyle & Scott has recognised the efforts and dedication of the heroes of amateur football are often under-appreciated and overlooked. Small local communities are often left with no choice but to contribute their hard-earned incomes to keep their clubs alive due to the shameful lack of funding coming from the top down to grassroots football.

Clubs can apply for their new football kits using a simple application process, filling out a short online form with the story of their club at Any club, whether 5, 7 or 11-a-side, freestylers, pub teams or mid-week footballers, is invited to apply for complimentary football kits and remove a significant expense for the season ahead. An expert panel will then review all applications individually before deciding which teams will receive the free Lyle & Scott football kits.

Designed in-house and developed through the brand’s long-established production processes, the kits pay homage to the brand’s 150 years of heritage, combining Lyle & Scott’s expertise in fashion, football and products developed for performance. Teams will be able to choose their favourite kit from a range of shirts designed to look and feel great. The range includes an Argyle pattern, or a thistle inspired design for those wanting something striking, or more classic designs for the football purists.

The kits will all be hand-finished in Scotland, in the brand’s hometown of Hawick, with customisation for individual player numbers and club crests. For any newly formed teams, if they do not have a club crest, Lyle & Scott will go the extra mile and collaborate with the club to design that as well, to help develop their own proud identity.
