THE ESTEEMED British clothing brand TOFFS has launched an exclusive range of officially-licensed commemorative Scotland sportswear to mark the 150th anniversary of Scottish football in 2023.
The new product range comes as part of a long partnership between TOFFS and the Scottish FA, and includes a wide selection of shirts, casualwear and accessories that feature rich navy blue designs paired with the Scottish FA’s golden 150th Commemorative Crest, inspired by the original association crest of 1873.
These new TOFFS products represent a perfect way for fans to celebrate Scottish football’s momentous anniversary in style. The 18-month celebration, organised by the Scottish FA, began in late 2022 and runs throughout 2023, marking three key milestones in Scottish football history:
- The staging of the first ever international match between Scotland and England on November 30th 1872
- The formation of the Scottish FA on March 13th 1873
- The launch of the Scottish Cup on October 18th 1873
Commemorative events are set to run throughout the year, including a showpiece 150th Anniversary Heritage Match between Scotland and England at Hampden Park on September 23rd, to celebrate the pivotal role that Scotland has played in the development of the world’s most popular sport.
Edward Slater, Director at TOFFS, said: “2023 is shaping up to be a monumental year for Scottish football, and TOFFS is proud to launch this exclusive collection of 150th anniversary sportswear and merchandise as part of our overall partnership with the Scottish FA.
“There can be no underestimating the importance of Scotland’s contribution to the historic development of the beautiful game. From hosting the first ever officially-recognised international match to organising the world’s longest-running association football trophy competition, many of football’s most important innovations have come from Scotland.
“TOFFS’ 150th anniversary commemorative Scotland sportswear collection offers the perfect way to celebrate this rich sporting legacy. Every product is manufactured by hand in the UK using 100% cotton, and is designed with a timeless retro aesthetic that conjures memories of the countless iconic moments from the last 150 years of Scottish football history.”
