The Scottish Football Association is marking 150 years in 2023, and to help celebrate head of retail and kit, Steven Romeo, commissioned various licensed products.
A special edition kit has proved popular, and is also available in a premium presentation pack – the men’s sizes sold out online within 15 minutes of launch.
In addition, a commemorative coin from Zenith and a 24 year old malt whisky have been created, with a friendly between Scotland and England played in September to mark the first ever match – officially recognised by FIFA as the first international football match ever played, held on St Andrews Day in 1872.
“Celebrating our 150th anniversary is a huge event for the Scottish FA,” commented Steven. “Over the course of the year we ran multiple events including the anniversary kit launch – this was amazingly well received by the loyal tartan army. We also launched multiple products using our own anniversary crest. The products included mobile phone covers from Nostalgia, exclusive textile ranges from Source Lab, a commemorative coin from Zenith, retro textiles from TOFFS, personalised stadium bricks with Intaglio Creative and even fire pits from Official Fire Pits.”
