I can’t see anything wrong with this...in fact it seems......good!
There’s clearly a catch somewhere! This sort of idea would be excellent supplemented with ‘Kids for a quid’.
It's kcom giving kits away not the gruesome twosome
Normal service resumed
Great thing though. I like it.
A good initiative, anything that encourages youngsters has to be applauded.
Hopefully, there'll be a lot of colour clashes in the the local junior leagues. There can't be that many junior teams
I don’t think it means they’ll get City kits, just an Umbro one
Defeating the object a bit if it isn’t a city kit isn’t it?
Maybe I’m wrong
There was bound to be a first time eventually...
500 teams - 45 divisions
I'm hopeful we'll score that many goals at home. Seriously though, that is an impressive number of junior teams
Have to say, credit where it’s due, great initiative which will be greatly appreciated by junior footie teams. (Can’t believe I’m giving Allams some credit, must be the Cyprus sun getting to me or too much vino, medicinal of course, need to keep hydrated.)
About time more benefit was given to the grass roots teams, it will be warmly welcomed I’m sure. Many junior teams have to play in hand me down kits, or beg local businesses for sponsorship. I know when my son played junior footie, one of the teams, despite paying subs, didn’t even have enough match kit and turned up looking like a right rag tag bunch who had to play in different shirts with bibs on!
The only down side is if this initiative caught on with other clubs, we’d never hear the end of Ehab, the trail blazer and business brains.
You missed the pertinent point Howden, its KComm giving them away not the Allam's. Too much sun!
Not sure but I think this is from KCOM not Ehab.
As above ...4
LOCAL FOOTBALL FANS WILL HAVE EXTRA REASON TO CHEER EVERY GOAL SCORED BY HULL CITY AT THE KCOM STADIUM THIS SEASON.
Every time the Tigers score at home during the coming campaign, KCOM will donate a full Umbro team kit for a local youth team.
Each kit comprises 15 outfield shirts, shorts and socks and one goalkeeper kit to make sure the winning teams look their best on the pitch.
Brendon Smurthwaite, KCOM’s community coordinator, said: “We’re delighted to be teaming up with Hull City for our KCOM kit giveaway. Every time the Tigers score at home in the 2019/20 season we’ll be donating a full team kit – which means another lucky club will be getting a brand-new strip for the 2020 season.
“Last year City scored 37 goals at the KCOM Stadium in the league – so on that form it means dozens of local teams will benefit from the scheme. As a huge supporter of local sport, we wanted to do something that would really benefit the local footballing community and a kit giveaway will have real benefits for many clubs which sometimes struggle for funds to buy new equipment.
“We’ll be rooting for the Tigers to be hitting the back of the net as often as possible in what we hope will be an exciting, high scoring and promotion-chasing season.”
Launching the scheme by putting the ball in the back of the net – and the first strip in the kitty – alongside some young fans at the KCOM Stadium today, midfielder Kevin Stewart said he was looking forward to the Tigers scoring plenty of goals this season.
He said: “All being in the same kit makes you feel part of a team, you feel closer to everyone, you feel like they’re your team-mates and your friends so I think this is a really cool idea. With the new manager, it’s going to be really exciting football. We’re going to have a lot of energy and a lot of attacking football, so I think the chances are we are going to score a lot of goals. Hopefully, we can make a lot of money for the kids and the kits.”
Each club will be able to apply once for the scheme to be entered in the kit draw. At the end of the season, all the money collected in the kitty will be used to buy team strips for as many clubs as possible. Every club that applies will be entered into the draw and the winners picked at random.
Joe Clutterbrook, Hull City’s Head of Commercial, said: “We’re delighted to be working with KCOM on such a fun and worthwhile initiative. Grassroots football has such an important role to play in the overall success of the game and it’s great to see KCOM recognising that and supporting local clubs.
“Of course, every goal we score at the KCOM Stadium is important but now, thanks to this initiative, each one will also have a direct impact on a local youth team.”

It’s a great thing, but as has been said above it looks like this is a KCOM initiative, not an Ehab one
I do wonder why teams struggle for kits these days. You don’t have to find sponsorships for one nearly as much as you used to because the Premier League constantly give out stacks of new Nike and Adidas kit to youth teams and schools every year. Most Primary Schools have one from what I’ve seen at the local competitions over the last two years.
Still a good initiative though.
There are a lot. And, a lot more than rugby ones in this rugby mad town.
