Want to support a fantastic partnership and wear a lovely bit of kit while playing FIFA 21 on PlayStation? Of course you do.
Yesterday, PlayStation UK, in partnership with the English Schools Football Association (ESFA), made the winning design in their PlayStation F.C. Schools Cup Kit Design competition available in FIFA 21 for both PS4 and PS5.
The design, which you can see in the header image above, was created by Manchester pupil Lucas Miley. To unlock it in-game, all players need to do is complete the PS School’s Cup Squad Building Challenge before 5:59pm BST on 27th April. So, get to it – if you ask me, it’s a very nice design indeed.
The news that Lucas’ kit design would appear in the game was delivered to him by PlayStation F.C. Schools Cup ambassador and Chelsea F.C. star Tammy Abraham, who stated: “I’m passionate about supporting young football players so am really proud to be a PlayStation F.C. Schools’ Cup ambassador. The Kit Design Competition was an unbelievable opportunity to gain exposure to FIFA players, and I was honoured to be able to show Lucas what the kit looked like in game for the first time. It looks amazing, he is a very deserving winner! FIFA 21 players should definitely check out Lucas’s cool new kit in game.”
The competition, which tasks pupils with a keen interest in design, creativity and football to create and then submit their kit design either digitally or with pen and paper, is just one part of the PlayStations Schools’ Cup initiative, which has PlayStation UK coming together with the ESFA in order to inspire pupils both on and off the pitch.
In its 8th year of Partnership, this year’s campaign was supported by England internationals Georgia Stanway as well as the aforementioned Tammy Abraham. Andrea Chiton, ESFA CEO commented: “The PlayStation F.C. Schools’ Cup is an activity that the ESFA is incredibly proud to produce each year in partnership with PlayStation UK. Lucas’ winning design was exceptional and beat off tough competition from the other 800+ entries received.”
More information about PlayStation Schools’ Cup can be found on the ESFA website. Make sure you show your support by completing the PS School’s Cup Squad Building Challenge if you own FIFA 21 on either PS4 or PS5. Again, you have until 5:59pm BST on 27th April to do so.
