Beth England reveals football kits for the Moon

Beth England has revealed the first football kits for the Moon.

The Lioness and Women's Euro 2022 winner teamed up with two inspirational schoolgirls for the reveal in anticipation of the first football match on the Moon.

It follows a nationwide campaign by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) for school children aged 4 to 13 to design the first-ever home and away kit for 'Moon United' – with the aim of challenging outdated perceptions of engineering and showing children that they can combine an interest in football and space with a Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) related career.

The winning kits were designed by Erim Ali, 13, and Ishaani Nair, seven, with bold and eye-catching creations that would rival any club in the Premier League.

Erim and Ishaani have now had their designs brought to life and presented to them by Tottenham star England and British engineer and aerodynamicist Sophie Harker.

England said: "It’s an old football phrase, but the girls did an amazing job and I’m over the moon to be part of this campaign to involve youngsters in STEM. While science and engineering play a big part in the future, it’s critical to my life as a footballer today. That’s everything from the design of football boots, training and nutrition, performance analysis data, through to the construction of the stadiums we play in. Without STEM, we wouldn’t have the beautiful game as we know it today."

The competition was judged by a panel of IET expert judges including Harker, Beth Clarke and Brian David Johnson.
