Foundation partners with Cif for Re-Kicks project

Bradford City FC Community Foundation is partnering with Cif on a mission to reboot the beautiful game for thousands of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, and inspire on-pitch confidence through the restoration of used football boots.

Teaming up with England and Chelsea footballer Cole Palmer, we’re aiming to

provide ‘free kicks’ to budding young players in Bradford, helping them to feel pitch-


After conducting research with UK-wide sports charity Sported, Cif found that 97% of

their community sports groups believe that their young players feel more confident

playing sports when they have the right kit. However, a staggering 98% of group

leaders agreed that the cost of new football boots is a cost-of-living challenge for

their families.​

Something needs to change. Using the power of our community, we will be collecting

even the dirtiest of boots to be cleaned and re-distributed across the UK using Cif,

ready for young football players ahead of the 2024/25 footy season.​

To provide more opportunities for young players to get on the pitch, we need your

help - the City faithful.

Please join us in our mission and donate your used football boots at the Foundation's City Hub (please check opening times prior to delivering your donation).
