As a business we’re really privileged to work with lots of clubs, organisations and charities that are about much more than just sport.

Sport can be a force for good in so many ways. At it’s best sport unites communities, raises awareness for important issues and provides an escape from the challenges of modern life.

It’s been a year where sport has been disrupted massively. And when things go back to “normal”, it’ll be more important than ever as a means of bringing people back together.

To celebrate the good that sport can do, we’re going to highlight three causes we work with that we think need highlighting. Plus they’ve all got banging kits too…

Grenfell Athletic FC

Founded following the tragic 2017 fire, Grenfell Athletic (as well as being a pretty decent football team) have quickly become a central hub and beacon of hope for the local community.

The club has big plans too. They want to launch youth teams, women’s teams and eventually have their own ground. You can read more about the club’s vision for the future in our interview with club founder, Rupert Taylor.

You can be part of helping them achieve their goals by buying one of their lovely Nike match kits, proceeds of which go towards the development of the club. Click here to check out their club shop.

Whippets FC - Black Trans Lives Matter

Whippets FC are a London based women’s football collective. They’re all about celebrating creativity, identity and inclusivity through women’s football. They also combine their love of the game with shining a light on important issues. And boy, do they know how to design a football shirt…

As proud members of the LGBTQIA+ community, they recently launched a special edition Nike shirt, all profits from which will be donated to the Marsha P. Johnson Institute, who’s mission is to protect the rights of black transgender people. This is a community who encounter significant structural, social and institutional barriers, all of which have been exacerbated by the pandemic.

Broadley FC

The Lincolnshire based club were set up in the memory of Grimsby Town fan Richard Broadley, who sadly died of leukaemia in 2011, aged just 20. Incredibly, the club have raised over £20,000 for charity to date and they aren’t stopping there.

Broadley FC have attracted support from a number of ex-Mariners, as well as from a slightly more unlikely source in Man-vs-Food legend, Adam Richman. County of Kings, Richman’s TV production company have sponsored Broadley FC’s shirts which you can purchase here.

If you’re not a fan of the shirt (are you mad?) then you can get behind the boys by donating to Blood Cancer UK via their Just Giving page.

Three great causes, with three great football shirts to match. These are just a few of many incredible clubs we work with. Keep your eyes peeled for more over the next few weeks and months…
