New Sheffield FC Classic Football Shirts Sponsorship + 16-17 Kits Revealed

Creating one of the coolest shirt sponsoring partnerships in recent history, Classic Football Shirts, the shirt retailer with the biggest collection worldwide, has teamed up with Sheffield FC, founded in 1857 as the very first football club.



The agreement sees CFS appear on the front of Sheffield FC's jerseys, which were also launched recently. Sheffield FC currently competes in the Northern Premier League Division One South, at the eighth level of the English league system.



Based on Puma teamwear, the new Sheffield FC kits feature Classic Football Shirts' logo on the chest. They are red, blue and yellow for home, away and third, respectively. Under the new partnership, Sheffield FC's 2016-17 jerseys will be sold exclusively through CFS' website, enabling fans all around the world to get their hands on them. Other merchandise and memberships are also available. It is the first time that Classic Football Shirts has entered such an agreement.

Danny Taylor from Classic Football Shirts stated: “We’re absolutely delighted to be
working with Sheffield FC and we look forward to supporting them on their exciting
journey and help propel the Sheffield FC story to our global audience. History,
heritage and authenticity are core values which make Classic Football Shirts unique
so working with The World’s oldest football club is the perfect partnership”.

Besides the day-to-day league business, Sheffield FC, long plagued by financial difficulties, is hoping to become a sustainable club in the future and build a new stadium at the 'Home of Football' at Olive Grove in Sheffield where the very first game of football took place in 1857.
