Indie quartet Sea Girls, and the fabled vintage football shirt provider, Classic Football Shirts, have announce a unique collab ahead of the band’s highly-anticipated UK ‘Hometown Tour’.
As Sea Girls gear up to visit towns and cities across the country, kicking off November 17th, the band will be sponsoring local Sunday League football teams - nominated via their fanbase. The group will provide each club with a fully Sea Girls-branded free Umbro kit, hoping to breathe new life, awareness and ever-needed support into grassroots football.
Frontman Henry Camamile commented; "Homesick was written to reflect everybody’s hometowns, so being able to give something back to our fans in this way is really important. We hope that by supporting fans’ local football teams with free upcycled kits, we will in a small way be giving something back to their communities and help with raising awareness for these teams."
Classic Football Shirts added: 'We're delighted to be helping Sea Girls give something back to their fans and local communities through football. There's now a strong list of artists and bands sponsoring their favourite football teams, but this idea to sponsor local grassroots clubs along the tour route for the band shows how much they care about their fans and it gives everyone a chance to get involved. The first kit with AFC Muswell Hill has come out brilliantly and we're already excited to see how all these teams get on in these shirts this season" Local league teams will be represented by male, female and LGBTQ communities and fans of Sea Girls will be able to purchase limited editions of a special Sea Girls Hometown Football shirt by pre-ordering here, with all proceeds going to Football Beyond Borders.
The Hometown Tour' kicks off mid-November with support across all dates from rising star Lauran Hibberd. With dates already sold out, additional extra dates have been added and culminates with a massive show at London’s Alexandra Palace on December 1st and an additional special DJ set from TV and Radio presenter Abbie McCarthy.
