Liverpool FA Partners with Kit Aid

Liverpool County Football Association is delighted to announce a new partnership with charity, Kit Aid.

KitAid is a registered charity that finds a new home for your unwanted kit in areas of the developing world where football is loved but participation is held back by a lack of access to kit and equipment.

The charity was founded in 1998 by Derrick Williams MBE. A keen football fan, Derrick saw young children in Tanzania playing football in bare feet with tattered shirts and a football made of plastic bags. He promised to send back a box of kit to the village and KitAid was born.

Since then KitAid has worked with many Charity Partners, sending over 460,000 items of kit to over 40 of the poorest countries across five continents.

At the end of the season, Liverpool County FA will be hosting a donation drive, where people from across Merseyside can drop unwanted kit off before it’s packaged and sent to Africa.

Details of these drop-off dates will be announced in the coming months.


Stu Carrington, Football Development Officer at Liverpool FA, said: “Kit Aid is such a fantastic, worthwhile cause, sending used or new football kits out to Africa for adults and kids who have nothing.

“We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Kit Aid and hope to bring a smile to many people’s faces when they’re able to receive football kit from generous donations.”
