England Will Wear Limited Edition Warm-Up Shirts Ahead of Scotland Match

Celebrating football heritage.

September 11th 2023

The Three Lions will wear commemorative warm-up shirts before the 150th anniversary heritage match against Scotland at Hampden Park.

England and Scotland’s goalless draw on 30 November 1872 was football’s first international match. In celebration of that historic meeting, the two nations will go head-to-head in Glasgow to mark 150 years of international football and one of the sport’s oldest rivalries.

Before kick-off, the England players will warm up in a unique shirt – a modern replica of the kit worn for the inaugural match. It is a classic, all-white jersey, branded with the original Three Lions crest. Beneath the badge, ‘1872’ is stitched in navy blue.

Instead of selling the shirts, a limited number will be auctioned to raise money for the FA’s official charity partner, Alzheimer’s Society. The auction is live and will close at 8pm on 30 September.
