We’re delighted to be able to offer an opportunity for fans to recycle old or unwanted football shirts via the club.

FITNESS PARTNER: It’s great that they can help us out and we can help them out.

9 December 2021

Starting from today [Monday 13 December], you can bring along any football shirts you may have which are no longer required.   

Collection points will be situated at the East Stand ticket office (upstairs in the blue stand) at our Blues Store and at the CUOSC match day surgery in the Study Centre ahead of every home game.

That means you can drop your old shirts off when you’re purchasing your tickets, visiting the Blues Store or coming to the game. 

The donated shirts will be sorted and distributed for use at home and overseas for charitable and community purposes. 

For this initial project, we are asking fans to only donate shirts (not shorts, socks or training/leisurewear). 

Please bring them fully washed and clean.

HER GAME TOO: United announce new partnership

7 December 2021

Chief executive Nigel Clibbens said: “This is something we’ve needed for a while now as many supporters are keen to recycle old football kit.

“We’ve passed on unused club kit and stock to charity in the past, and it’s something we are very keen to do again.

“A supporter has helped to get the project moving, along with the SLO, and credit to them. I’m hopeful that many people will benefit from donations to these recycle banks. 

“Not only is the repurposing of the kit of huge personal value to the recipients at home and abroad, the club and fan base are reducing potential textile waste to landfill, therefore reducing the carbon footprint and environmental damage. 

“At the end of the season, the fan groups will ask fans for suggestions of community and charity organisations where the shirts can go. Keep an eye out and please do tell us where you would like these donated items to go.”

SLO Simon Clarkson added: “This project not only supports the environment with a reduction in waste, but also as a fan base we can put a collective effort into putting these shirts to use either in our local community or in other charitable areas.

“If fans have ideas about how to best re-use them, please get in touch via the contact details below.”

You can contact the SLO by email on slo@carlisleunited.co.uk or via Twitter on @CUFCSLO.
