As part of the virtual CFA Race to Wembley and in partnership with Kitlocker, Cumberland FA asked the grassroots football community to design a kit that they would like to wear if walking out onto the pitch at Wembley in!
Although the challenge was aimed at getting people active over the 16 days, teams were also provided with a squad pack to bring out the artistic side in their young footballers.
For 16 days more than 700 members of the grassroots football community connected in the virtual CFA Race to Wembley! Click HERE to read about it.
Participants and the grassroots football community were encouraged to enter the competition and get creative. There were some fantastic designs. View them all HERE on our Facebook page.
Once the entries were in, a shortlist was provided to our panel of independent judges.
Our Nike partner Kitlocker agreed to #PowerUp the winning three kit designs and will be printing the winning designs on a shirt!
Chris Rhodes from Kitlocker commented: "The levels of creativity from the kids of Cumberland blew us away and it was very difficult to pick the winners. They were all fantastic designs. We're really excited to be bringing the three winning kits to life and to see how they come out."

Cumberland FA and Kitlocker would like to congratulate the three winning designs which will now be sent to the Kitlocker HQ to get the #PowerUp treatment!

While the winning three designs will get the Kitlocker #PowerUp treatment, the kit designs who have been awarded 'Highly Commended' will receive a football courtesy of Cumberland FA. Send us a message via our social media channels and we can make the arrangements.
Cumberland FA and Kitlocker would like to thank those who took the time to send in their designs!
Helen Aitchison, Marketing and Communications Officer for Cumberland FA said “We loved seeing the variety and the creativity of our young grassroots footballers in the kit designs.
