For many boys, playing football is a huge part of everyday life. Whether it's Sunday league matches, playing games for the school team, or simply using jumpers for goalposts in a lunch time kick-around, a game of football is never far away. Many boys spend P.E. lessons and after-school hours training with their school team and the wearing of a school football kit is all part of the experience.
The wearing of school football shirts, in particular, is very popular amongst football playing students and many schools even include school football kits as part of the required P.E. kit. Such kits can vary greatly in appearance; though will generally feature the given school's preferred or uniform colours. Some schools prefer to have plain coloured kits, although most kits do feature stitching, piping or panels in a contrasting colour, lending the kits a more professional look. Popular colour combinations for school kits include red and white, navy and white and royal blue and white.
As with any other football kit, school football tops are available in a variety of different styles – colours, sleeves and fabrics are all optional. Football is a popular break time activity all year round, but football is only generally played as part of P.E. lessons during the winter months. For that reason it might be best to opt for long-sleeved football shirts!
Football shirts are also available in different cuts, including the traditional, multi-purpose sports shirt cut and the more modern, premiership football inspired 'Milan' style shirt. This popular style features piping around the seams and a stylish contrast side panel.
