The World’s First Football Club, Sheffield FC and Classic Football Shirts are delighted to announce an exciting multi-year partnership which will see Classic Football Shirts feature as main shirt sponsor of the club alongside selling Sheffield FC shirts, merchandise and memberships on their website.
The new shirt, which was first officially revealed at Sheffield FC’s game vs. Gresley FC, is the first time that a first team jersey has been available online this season. The first of many projects with Classic Football Shirts, the partnership is designed to take Sheffield FC products to the club’s fans from across the world.
