The Community Trust have worked with more than 4,000 children as part of Premier League Primary Stars, a scheme which aims to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills. 

The Kit and Equipment Scheme, run in partnership with Nike, gives teachers the chance to get their hands on free resources to aid pupils’ learning.

Registered teachers, who have not received free kit or equipment over the past two seasons, can apply online here. The Kit & Equipment Scheme is delivered on the League’s behalf by the Football Foundation.

What kit and equipment is available?

Available in a variety of styles and colours, this season’s Premier League Primary Stars kit package includes: 14 Nike football shirts and 1 Nike goalkeeper shirt numbered, 15 pairs of shorts and 15 pairs of socks. In addition, there is a special Nike tracksuit for the teacher.
