Umbro, Ltd., a subsidiary of NIKE, Inc., is the original Manchester based football brand that invented sportswear and sports tailoring. Umbro’s first major football kit was made for Manchester City in 1934, a kit they won the FA Cup in. Today, the company combines its heritage in sports tailoring with modern football culture to create groundbreaking and iconic football apparel, footwear and equipment that blend performance and style.
With the launch of “Umbro in the community”, Umbro considers this award to be an opportunity to use sport for positive social change and to encourage young people to take part in sport throughout the UK.
Umbro’s director of sustainable business & innovation, Carole Greenwood, said: “An award that encourages sport, young people and the community to come together is a perfect match for Umbro and its Community Investment program and its campaign to turn sport and physical activity into a fundamental right for every young person.”
