McDonalds kit scheme


FA Charter Standard clubs now have until Sunday, September 28 to apply

Over 4,500 FA Charter Standard clubs nationwide are applying for their share of a kit gift from McDonald’s which equates to over £2m of retail cost per season, and Essex clubs are being encouraged to make sure they don’t miss out after the deadline for applications was extended until Sunday, September 28.

In August, The FA and McDonald’s launched their new 2014-18 sponsorship programme which outlined McDonald’s as The FA’s Community Partner for the next four years. In addition to their continued support of the Community Shield and the Community Awards, the new FA McDonalds Community Kit Give Away Scheme will provide every Charter Standard club with at least one team in the under-16s age group or below with a free kit for each of the four years.

The focus of the Community Kit Give Away Scheme is for teams between the under-7s and 12s age groups. However, if an FA Charter Standard club does not have any teams within these boundaries, but do have a team between the under-13s and 16s, the scheme will provide these clubs with a free kit. To be eligible, each club’s FA Charter Standard accreditation is required to have been ‘Awarded’ or ‘In-Progress’ on June 30, 2014.

FA Charter Standard clubs now have until Sunday, September 28 to order their kit. E-Mail as soon as possible for details. Further information on the FA Charter Standard Programme, and grassroots football, can be found at, by following @EssexCountyFA on Twitter and by searching for ‘EssexFootball’ on Facebook.
