The Rulebook

Host Your Kit is different type of sportswear competition. We don’t want you cutting out coupons, collecting vouchers, or buying a particular product for the next year, we simply want you to tell us why you deserve a new youth team football, rugby, hockey or basketball strip. Our judging panel will meet every month to select the lucky winners.

We will judge the winners purely on the strength of their entries – so please make them memorable!

The winners will be contacted directly via telephone and email so please make sure your contact details are correct.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates.
