Football kit news from League One as Derby County have gifted NSPCC the space on the front of the clubs shirts for the remainder of the 2022-23 season.
The logo of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) will feature on the Derby County shirts for the first time during Wednesdays Carabao Cup round three tie against Liverpool at Anfield.
Derby County owner, David Clowes, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with the NSPCC. To be able to highlight such a worthwhile charity, one that has been at the forefront of protecting children for over a century, was one of the easiest decisions to make.
“The name on the front of the shirts should not simply be a commercial decision, it should be one taken with a consideration for what is right for both the club and the wider community. It is a privilege for Derby County to be associated with the NSPCC.”
NSPCC Chief Executive Officer, Sir Peter Wanless, said: “I’m thrilled that the NSPCC is forming this new partnership with Derby County Football Club. Sport has the power to reach out to local communities and change lives, and this partnership represents a golden opportunity where the NSPCC, Derby County and the Derbyshire FA can all come together to keep children and young people safe across the region.
“It’s vital that we all play our part in ensuring that every child is safe in every space of our society. And this includes sports settings, where every child and young person can pursue a passion and lifelong love for sport in an environment free from abuse and harm. I look forward to working closely with Derby County throughout the season, and everyone at the NSPCC is hugely grateful for the awareness their latest kit will raise for the charity’s vital work.”
The NSPCC logo will only appear on the players kits and won’t be able on replica versions of the 2022-23 shirts.
