Primary Schools across England and Wales can get their hands on a Nike football kit for their team or equipment to use in lessons, all for free.

The Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme opened for applications on Tuesday, 20 February and schools registered to Premier League Primary Stars can apply for the kit and equipment.

Schools can claim 14 pieces of children’s kit, plus a tracksuit for the teacher.

The equipment package includes 12 Nike match balls, training bibs, pop-up goals, and many other things that teachers can use to create active classroom sessions.

Last year more than 3,700 kits and equipment packs were donated by the Premier League.

Teachers or parents keen to have these for their schools should register them with Premier League Primary Stars so they can apply. 

So far more than 12,000 schools have done so to take up the free resources available to school teachers that can inspire girls and boys aged 5-11 in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field.

Teaching materials cover subjects from English and Maths to teamwork and PE, with free to download activity ideas, worksheets, lesson plans, fun assemblies and exclusive videos.

Schools should visit to see if they are eligible and how to apply for the kit and equipment.
