Established in 1974 by a group of football fans who regularly travelled to away games by coach, Hull City Supporters AFC have been playing on local parks and pitches in the local area on Sunday mornings ever since.
The Sunday League outfit received a kit donation from the club along with prizes for a fundraising raffle in 2013, but thanks to Kenyan sports betting platform and shirt sponsor SportPesa, the team have been given a brand new set of replica shirts, shorts and socks to bring their look up to date.
The new kit was handed over by Dean Windass at the recent home game against Wigan Athletic, and Shaun Simmonds, Head of Marketing at SportPesa, was delighted to help, saying: “Hull City supporters have been central to the success of the Kits for Africa campaign. This is an initiative that we launched with the Club three years ago as Kits for Kenya and the continued generosity of the Hull City supporters and the Football Club itself has seen the campaign go from strength to strength. We’re delighted to be in a position to give back to the fans and donate this kit to Hull City Supporters AFC and wish them the very best of luck for the future.”
As well as the kit, the club have also donated a signed shirt for a raffle at a reunion dinner being held to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Hull City Supporters AFC.
