Pendle continue as Official ESFA Kit Suppliers for 2019-2020

The fantastic partnership between the ESFA and Pendle continues for another season

The English Schools’ FA are delighted their partnership with Pendle as Official Kit Suppliers will continue, once more, into the 2019-20 season. As well as kitting out both our England U15 School Girls’ and England U18 Schoolboys’ teams, the partnership will also continue to provide all schools with the opportunity to purchase great quality kit.

For 42 years Pendle have been supplying the best quality football kits & equipment direct to schools without any agents or middlemen, enabling them to offer exceptional quality, service and value to customers. Pendle see this partnership as a way to bring their core values of trust, quality and exceptional service to the ESFA and all secondary schools, which sees the continued development of the health of girls and boys in education across England.

Last season’s ESFA England Squads were fully kitted out, courtesy of Pendle’s commitment to support the Association and, separately, PlayStation provided all U12 – U15 Schools’ Cup finalists with a PlayStation branded Pendle kit to wear ahead of the National Finals. As a result of this ongoing partnership, ESFA Member Schools get the chance to purchase their own Pendle kits and merchandise at a special rate.

The ESFA and Pendle would like to invite ESFA partner schools’ to take advantage of an incredibly priced “All-In-One Kit Bundle” that offers fantastic savings on football kit and equipment. In addition, there is also still the option for schools to set up a free Online Shop for the benefit of easy and affordable kit ordering for sports departments.

Steve Hall, Sales & Marketing Director from Pendle said ‘It is a real privilege and honour to be the Official Supplier to the English Schools’ FA. We are incredibly proud to be partnering such an impressive organisation with such strong values and a long heritage of tradition dating back to 1904. As ever, Pendle will continue to offer exceptional quality, service and value to all our customers and member schools”
