Dressing for success

Buying new football kits has a lot to do with creating your club identity but it can also impact a player’s confidence. Looking professional can give a player an extra boost on the pitch. It can also give you an edge over your opponent by knocking their confidence. It all comes down to looking the part and playing like a professional. To ensure your players are all living up to their potential, you’ll want to get the best possible kit.

A team wearing a football kit is about more than just knowing who you’re meant to be passing to. Anyone who’s played football will understand the feeling you get when you’re dressed in your football kit before a match. Being part of a team wearing matching gear promotes the idea of teamwork, creates unity, and can help bring about success. Being proud of their football kits will push players into performing their best every time they step onto the pitch.

Players will be working hard and are bound to sweat. Making sure that your kit is made from moisture-wicking fabric will ensure that it doesn’t affect their comfort levels. You’ll also want to make sure that shirts keep their colour because they’ll need a fair bit of washing. Buy your new football kits with Pendle and you get 100% durable colourfast polyester which retains colour wash after wash.


Which colour?

There have been plenty of studies to determine if there’s a link between shirt colour and your chance of winning. The results tend to suggest that teams with red shirts win more often than teams in other colours. Between 1947 and 2003, 60% of winning English teams wore red shirts. Followed by 20% wearing blue, 10% in white, 5% in yellow or orange, and 3% in other colours.

There could be plenty of reasons for this but colour theory suggests that red is not only good for boosting confidence but also suggests dominance. It’s also possible that red is just easier to see on the pitch which increases the accuracy of passes. Whatever the reason, check out our range of red football shirts and see if it gets you on a winning streak.

Make sure you’re visible

Of course, you don’t need to go rushing out and change your shirts to red if it isn’t part of your club’s colours. The main thing you need to consider when it comes to kit colour is that your players can see each other. Nobody wants to go through what Manchester United did in 1996 with their invisible grey shirt. Thankfully, Pendle has a great range of eye-catching football shirts for you to pick from.

Getting a professional-looking kit is about more than just colour. Players are more likely to put in a greater effort if they feel more like a professional team. Creating a professional kit can be as easy as adding numbers, names, and sponsor artwork to your shirt. A club with a more professional-looking kit will seem like a bigger threat than one with a more basic one. When you buy your new football kits from Pendle, you can choose from a range of customisation to suit your club’s budget.
