Pre-order your new FC United home kit

FC United is delighted to announce that the club’s new home kit for 2011 to 2013 is available to pre-order.

The manufacturers and suppliers of the new kit will be O’Neills International Sportswear from Ireland who have a base in Leigh, Lancashire.

Steve Pagnam, FC’s Board member with responsibility for merchandise, said: "We see this as a long term partnership with O’Neills that we are looking to strengthen to the mutual benefit of both.

"We know that our supporters have liked the high quality and the designs of the O’Neills leisurewear that we have recently had on sale.

"This partnership brings quicker delivery times of replica kit and leisurewear that has been manufactured much closer to Manchester than our previous suppliers. In the future, we also anticipate that FC United’s kit will be sold in O’Neills’ shops in Ireland."

Supporters can pre-order the new home kit by clicking here and we hope that the new shirt will be on sale at the Chester match on 16th July from a stall in the Supporters Direct marquee.

O’Neills International Sportswear was founded in Ireland in 1918 by Charles O’Neill Esq. The company was best known, in its more formative years, as a ball and clothing manufacturer to Gaelic games (football, hurling and camogie) and indeed currently supplies 98% of the licensed county squad clothing and merchandise across Ireland.

In the last 20 years the company has expanded dramatically and now is a supplier across a wide range of sports alongside that of Gaelic games, including rugby (union & league), soccer, hockey, basketball to name a few.

A spokesperson for O’Neills said: "O’Neills is delighted to be working with such a forward thinking football club such as FC United, and we hope to form a strong working partnership for many years to come."
