Host Your Kit Campaign Expanded to Include Commonwealth Games Sports
iomart has today launched its annual campaign to give away free sports kits to youth teams across England, Scotland and Wales.
iomart will be giving away top quality football, rugby, hockey and basketball kits to youth league teams after expanding its Host Your Kit campaign from just football and basketball to include the sports of rugby and hockey which will feature at this summer’s Commonwealth Games.
Phil Worms, Director of Marketing for iomart, said: “With our headquarters being in Glasgow we wanted to expand our kit give away to reflect the fantastic year of sport that is going to be taking place in this city so we’ve included rugby union and hockey which will both feature at Glasgow2014.
Through Host Your Kit we hope we can help inspire young people to stay physically active and healthy by reducing the costs involved in playing for a team.”
Official supporters of this year’s campaign include GreaterSport, the Greater Manchester charity which aims to change lives through sport.
Yvonne Harrison, Chief Executive (Designate) of GreaterSport, said: “Having a kit helps young people to feel part of a team, but the cost can be a real barrier, so the opportunity for clubs in Greater Manchester to receive much needed support and the potential to provide a kit to junior teams is something we know will be welcomed.”
Basketballscotland is an official supporter of Host Your Kit for the second year running. Kevin Pringle, CEO of basketballscotland added: “Host Your Kit is a fantastic initiative which has already benefitted many Scottish cubs so we hope as many teams as possible enter it this year.
At basketballscotland, we work to increase the popularity and profile of the sport in Scotland by working closely with regional associations, clubs, local authorities and all those involved in the game. The opportunity to get free team kit for youth sections is fantastic as Scottish Clubs keep growing their under 10, under 12 and under 14 sections. This Host your Kit initiative supports the engagement and commitment with the community to ensure the growth and sustainability of the sport in Scotland.”
Other supporters include Rangers footballer Robbie Crawford and Youth Football Scotland. Robbie said: “I know how inspiring it was to me to be able to wear a top quality kit when I was playing football as a kid. I’d urge every coach to enter their team for the chance to win a free kit.”Subscribe to RSS Feed
