The ESFA is delighted to share the brand new England kit for the 2022/23 international season, thanks to official kit suppliers, Pro:Direct. The Kit will be worn by the England U15 Schoolgirls and England U18 Schoolboys throughout their 2023 international campaigns
The new England Schoolgirl & Schoolboy kit has been designed and produced by the ESFA’s Official Kit Provider, Pro:Direct. The ESFA is excited to continue the sleek and modern design of last season’s kit, adding a few unique colour changes on this season’s home shirts.
The 22/23 international shirts once again feature the ESFA’s principle partner, Utilita as the front of shirt sponsor. The Association is happy to be promoting Utilita’s football rebooted campaign, supporting our shared mission to give as many pupils as possible the opportunity to play schools’ football.
Jem Maidment, Chief Marketing Officer at Utilita, said: “It is nothing short of an honour to again be supporting the Girls’ & Boys’ squads within the ESFA. The new kit looks spectacular and we are so proud to see the Utilita logo on the front of the shirt. Much like the ESFA, we strongly believe that everyone has the right to try their hand – or foot – at The Beautiful Game. That’s why Football Rebooted, our movement to collect used boots and donate them to those less fortunate, plays a huge part in this partnership. We wish both squads – U15 Schoolgirls and U18 Schoolboys – all the very best for their upcoming fixtures in their dazzling new kits!”
ESFA Chairman, Stuart Botham said: “On behalf of the ESFA, I am delighted to see the new kit created by Pro:Direct, which has been designed to perfectly showcase both the ESFA and Utilita brands, side by side. The ESFA is proud to continue into the 22/23 season with Utilita as the front of shirt sponsor and I would like to extend my thanks to Pro:Direct for their excellent work on producing this fantastic kit for our International squads. I am looking forward to seeing what our International teams can achieve, wearing their new kit, in 22/23!”
The England U15 Schoolgirls and U18 Schoolboys will be presented with their shirts during their preparatory training camp at St Georges Park, a proud moment for all involved. Their first chance to get their new kit dirty will also come during their training camps, facing various opposition in a series of friendly fixtures.
With the ESFA International trials being delayed last weekend, the ESFA is revealing this new kit today, to hopefully provide the awaiting trialists with added motivation and encouragement to get their hands on one of these kits for the season ahead.
