Posted on: May 27th, 2020 | by Laura Murdoch | No Comments

Buying a new football kit for your club is an important decision. There are so many different things for you to consider before you make your choice. So, what exactly do you want to be thinking about when you pick your new kit?

Dressing for success

Picking the right football kit 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 help 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 that feeling that comes when you’re dressed in your football kit before a match. Being part of a team in matching gear promotes the idea of teamwork, creates unity, and can help bring about success. Being proud of their football kit will push players into performing their best every time they step onto the pitch.

Comfort

To get the best out of your players, you’ll want to make sure that you’ve picked the most comfortable kit possible. Finding the right fit is important. Pendle offers a great range of sizes for adult and junior players and the unisex design will be perfect for men, women, girls and boys. Our modern fit shirts not only look great but give players enough room to move.

The right materials

Players will be working hard and are bound to sweat. Making sure that your kit is made from moisture-wicking fabric will ensure that this doesn’t affect their comfort levels. You’ll also want to make sure that shirts keep their colour. After all, your team kits will need a fair bit of washing. At Pendle, we use 100% durable colourfast polyester which retains colours wash after wash

Which colour?

There have been plenty of studies carried out to determine if there is a link between football shirt colours and a team’s chances 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 changing your shirts to red if it isn’t part of your club’s colours. If you’re doing well in the season then your confidence will be boosted regardless of what colour you’re wearing. The main thing you need to think about when it comes to the colour of your kit is to make sure 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.

 

Customisation

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. At Pendle, we offer a range of customisation that will suit every club’s budget.
