The McDonald's FA Charter Standard Kit Scheme

The McDonald’s FA Charter Standard Kit Scheme is part of a four-year programme, and we’re providing thousands of Nike kits to junior football teams across the country. . Last year alone nearly 5,000 accredited clubs across the UK have already received over 58,000 kits, demonstrating McDonald’s commitment to improving the standard of community football. The scheme could see over 250,000 strips distributed to accredited clubs over the course of the programme.

All eligible accredited clubs (with at least one youth team) will be contacted by their respective football association directly with a redemption code.

If you have your clubs redemption code, please follow the link for your respective nation and click through to the ordering portal where you can order your kits in time for the new grassroots football season.
