In February, "Myfootballclub"members approved Nike's offer to supply kit and merchandise for next season. Two weeks ago, Nike told them that they could provide kit and merchandise for the FA Trophy Final if members so wished.
Nike is offering to produce a commemorative FA Trophy Final shirt for the EUFC players and supporters, as well as other merchandise that can be available for purchase in the run up to the final on May 10. If given the opportunity to provide the team jersey for the final, Nike will also provide the squad with new travel wear including bags for the remainder of the season. The possibility of an FA Trophy Final shirt is something that Liam and the squad have reacted very positively to.
A commemorative EUFC v Torquay United red shirt would have to differ from the one chosen by members in February as next season's kit was selected from a range that is yet to be manufactured. They have pressed Nike on this but unfortunately it's impossible to bring the 2008/09 kit forward. If this offer is approved by the members, they will put an image of the FA Trophy kit on the site as soon as it is available.
Nike providing FA Trophy Final kit and merchandise is something that members will need to approve by vote. An adult FA Trophy Final shirt will cost £40, youth £35 and boys & girls £33 (these are the standard prices for Nike shirts at other clubs). The terms would be the same for the 08/09 season contract (a contract that the Trust Board have full view of). We have been re-assured by Nike that production and despatch will occur in good time for the match if we keep to the voting schedule as proposed.
