Mitre & ESF Announce Continued Partnership


Mitre have today announced their continued partnership with ESF – providers of the biggest youth football festival in the UK. The partnership will see Mitre continue their support of grassroots and youth football.

Mitre have been supporting ESF for the past 3 years. With 1,200 teams taking part, and over 40,000 people participating every year, ESF is the largest youth football festival in the UK. The tournament is run over various locations including award winning Butlin’s resorts in Bognor Regis, Minehead and Skegness – with the ESF Grand Finale being held at the home of England’s National teams, St. Georges Park.

Mitre, the leading football brand within grassroots*, will provide match footballs to all teams as part of the sponsorship. The footballs will include revolutionary Hyperseam technology – a market leading innovation engineered to deliver durability and performance. They’ll also be supplying thousands of jerseys for both teams and staff throughout the contract period.

Nathan Spencer, Brand Activation Exec at Mitre Sports International said: ‘’We’re extremely pleased to continue this partnership which helps to support grassroots football. ESF is a unique tournament which is inclusive of all ages, genders and abilities, and ESF are very aligned to our own values. It’s a great stage for us to talk to players and coaches – and the perfect platform to present our Mitre United loyalty scheme which is aimed at supporting grassroot clubs’’.

Martyn Young, Director at ESF Events added: “We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Mitre once again at ESF 2018 and ESF 2019. Having worked closely together over the last 3 seasons, it’s clear to see how committed Mitre are to supporting the Grassroots of the game we all love. Following a fantastic year at ESF 2017, 1,200 youth football teams of all abilities are expected to join us once again at ESF 2018. As always, we’ll be doing everything possible to ensure ESF is an experience the children and their families never forget.”
