About the Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme

To mark the start of the new academic year, players have been delivering new equipment to schools as part of the Premier League Primary Stars Kit & Equipment Scheme.

The PL Kit and Equipment Scheme is available to primary school teachers who register to participate in the PL Primary Stars programme.

The equipment bag contains match balls, training bibs and pop-up goals as well as bean bags, numbered cones and A-Z floor markers to help the children learn as they play in active lessons across all subjects in the curriculum.

Kirkheaton Primary in Huddersfield not only got a new equipment bag but also a visit from Terriers first-team players Jonas Lossl and Erik Durm.
