Pendle doesn’t just boast a great relationship with grassroots football teams – we’re also immensely proud of our involvement with schools. Meaning we’re delighted to be the official kit supplier to the English Schools Football Association!

This partnership, which began in the 2017-18 season, means that all ESFA England squads are kitted out by Pendle. It allows us to bring our core values of trust, quality and exceptional service to an association that is dedicated to the healthy development of boys and girls in education throughout England.



The best possible service to schools

We offer all ESFA-affiliated schools great benefits when using Pendle. These include a customised online shop with your choice of merchandise and a 10% discount on our usual prices. Your FREE Club Shop offers an easy and affordable ordering system for sports departments and lets parents purchase a quality school PE kit directly.



Some benefits of schools’ football for students

Football is our national sport and the ESFA have understood the importance of allowing children to play since 1904. However, the benefits to a child’s development go way beyond fitness. There are so many positive reasons for your child to get involved with football.

Positive behaviour and decision-making
Improves problem-solving skills
Improves communication and teamwork
Promotes school pride
Builds self-confidence
Teaches respect

Some kind words from the ESFA CEO, Andrea Chilton

“The ESFA are most grateful to Pendle for their ongoing support of the International programme and also the fantastic deals that they are able to offer to our Members. We hope we are able to encourage even more schools and teams to invest in the great quality items Pendle are able to provide. We are looking forward to another season working with our official kit suppliers”
