Seasiders Reveal Get Vocal Sponsored Third Kit
Blackpool Football Club is pleased to announce that Get Vocal will continue to be third kit sponsor for the 2021/22 season.
Get Vocal is a local mental health campaign which aims to improve the wellbeing of residents within Blackpool and the surrounding areas.
The logo proudly features front and centre of the Seasiders’ new third kit.
The kit, which features the popular Tower Power crest that adorned Blackpool shirts in the late 70s and 80s, will go on sale in-store and online from 10am on Monday (30 August).
Predominantly black with bonded tape detail in tangerine, the shirt has a crew neck collar and additional Tower Power detail within the fabric.
Bespoke EFL letters and numbers in the tangerine colourway have also been created especially for the new strip, with shirt printing available from 10am Monday when the kit goes on sale.
Linton Brown, Blackpool FC’s Chief Commercial Officer, said:
“We are delighted to be working with such an important campaign as Get Vocal for a third consecutive season.
“Taking care of your mental health is as important as looking after your physical health, and to have such an important message adorn the front of our third kit once again is something we are really proud of.
“We look forward to continuing our work with Blackpool Council on this important subject over the course of the season and thank them for their ongoing support.”
Dr Arif Rajpura, Director of Public Health at Blackpool Council, said:
“Mental health is something we all have and need to look after.
“The stigma around reaching out and asking for support or letting loved ones know we are struggling is still very much there for many people and we want to change that.
“We are all aware that our physical health can be improved, but sometimes we forget our mental health also needs attention. The Get Vocal tips are a way to start giving your mental health the care it needs.
“The partnership between Get Vocal and Blackpool Football Club means we can reach more residents with our message and start a conversation about the importance of mental wellbeing.”
