Premium British lifestyle brand, Lyle & Scott, is launching its biggest brand campaign to date – a new global initiative supporting grassroots football. The brand will launch ‘Kits for Clubs’ to pay tribute to its 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 from the brand in the first year, the campaign will grow to offer new kits to tens of thousands of dedicated grassroots football players all over the world.
Clubs will be able to apply for their new football kits using a simple application process, filling out a short online form with the story of their club at https://kitsforclubs.lyleandscott.com/. 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 Lyle & Scott team colours of black, gold, and white compliment the elevated designs, aiming to capitalise on the close relationship between premium fashion and football that has gone from strength to strength over the last two decades. Relationships with the chosen clubs will be nurtured and their feedback on the products will be used to develop the range of products further in the coming seasons.
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.
TheChicGeek says, “This is a fantastic and generous initiative from Lyle & Scott. Anything that encourages people to get off their screens and get out there is a good thing. If they are looking and feeling good as a team, even better.”
Applications for kits can be made via the brand’s dedicated page kitsforclubs.lyleandscott.com launching on the 18th of July 2023
