Sheffield FC

Sheffield FC

A very interesting newsletter came in today from my friends at Copa. It concerns the oldest football club in the world – Sheffield FC in my beloved Yorkshire.

“We are honored to announce to have agreed a multi-year partnership with Sheffield FC, the World’s First Football Club, to become the club’s new on-field partner. Formed in 1857, Sheffield FC have played the game and honored its traditions continually for 164 years. They regard themselves as custodians of the beautiful game, fully committed to preserving the time-honored values associated with the beloved game. These characteristics, this DNA, is very closely related to our own.

The inspiration for the first Sheffield FC x COPA teamwear collection comes mainly from the very first kit the club wore 164 years ago. It’s all about how it once started. We have used that classic pattern in our designs, but we have added our own modern twist. It is our tribute to the present, past and future of this magnificent club.

“At Sheffield FC we call ourselves a living breathing antique and a modern forward thinking football club, which is why we think COPA will make a perfect partner. A nod to the past, respecting heritage in design and look to the future with modern products in fabrics and production techniques.Our values of integrity, respect, community and the fact that we believe that the game should be available to everyone, irrelevant of age, race, religion or ability, are shared by COPA.”
Richard Tims, Chairman of Sheffield FC

The first Sheffield FC x COPA range is now available through the Sheffield FC (online) store, and in the COPA Flagshipstore in Amsterdam.

Discover all on-field playing kits and side-line apparel now.”
