Kitted Out: Women's Football Apparel

Quite Unsuitable For Females

20-05-2022 • 48 mins

This episode we talk about kits!

We start off with the oldest womens kit in the museum's archive, and go on to talk about the role of kits in the present day with collector Chelsey Downing, and sports apparel entrepreneur, Grace Vella.

We touch on the aesthetics of kits, but go far deeper than that, as we reflect on kit symbolism and the role of the kit within football communities.
