This season's Premier League Players' Kit Scheme has now opened for applications from schools and district teams across the country.
The Scheme, which is now in its fifth year, sees players from each of the 20 Premier League Clubs donate funds for full team kits (of 15 strips) to school groups and district teams who apply online via this link.
To date the Premier League, alongside its official partner, Nike, have provided 63,765 individual kits to junior teams both via the online national application system and through individual player nominations.
Stoke City goalkeeper, Jack Butland, recently visited Newstead Primary School in Stoke to hand out kit following their successful application as part of last year’s Scheme.
"The Premier League Players' Kit Scheme is a brilliant opportunity for us to give back to the local community by handing over some kits which can hopefully help get kids active," he said. "It's nice to come to the school and see kids so passionate about getting out and playing football.
"They seem really pleased with the new kits. It's a very simple thing but it gives a little bit of motivation, a little bit of encouragement to the guys to get involved."
Simon Morgan, Head of Football Relations at the Premier League added: "Over 4,250 schools and district teams have already benefited from the Premier League Players’ Kit scheme thanks to donations from Premier League players.
"I hope that the attraction of having the Premier League badge on their shirts will encourage more schools to sign up via the online application form, which in turn will help encourage their participation in football."
