The Football Association (The FA) announces an extension to their partnership with Umbro until 2018, ahead of the start of the team's 2012 European Championship qualifying campaign.

The agreement, to run until 31 July 2018, represents a significant investment which will be reinvested by The FA back into the game across all levels, from the senior team to grassroots. The Umbro partnership will fund a cross-section of areas key to the development of football in this country including:

• Support of all Club England's 23 football teams including the men's national teams, women's, Futsal, disability and amateur
• St George's Park, the home of the National Football Centre in Burton-upon-Trent which, in addition to hosting the England senior team, will train and develop a generation of coaches, referees and medical staff every year. New facilities will be housed there for both futsal and partially sighted football
• Free Umbro kit and equipment to 4,000 amateur teams every year to support The FA Chartered Standard Clubs programme
• Investment in 3,000 County FA courses every year which train 60,000 players, referees and coaches annually
• The FA Umbro Fives which encourages participation in the amateur small-sided game by offering thirty-two teams from the 20,000 players involved the chance to play at Wembley Stadium
• Development of Futsal through the National Futsal Championships and the Futsal Youth Festival
• The FA Cup - Umbro are a supporting partner of the world's most famous club cup competition
• Wembley Stadium - UMBRO are a supporting partner of the home of English football Umbro, which is also a partner of The FA's 2018 World Cup bid, has a longstanding relationship with England and The FA. They first manufactured England kits back in 1952 and have further shown their commitment through to 2018 with the current contract extension.

Commenting on the agreement, Martin Prothero, Senior Vice President of Football at Umbro said: “We are delighted to announce the extension of our contract with The Football Association. Umbro has been part of English football longer than anyone and it is only natural that we work with The FA to develop the game.

"We are absolutely committed to supporting The FA at all levels of the game, both broad and deep, and we feel now is the right time to show that commitment as we head into a new era for English football.”

Alex Horne, FA General Secretary, added: “We have a fantastic relationship with Umbro that spans almost 60 years. They are part of the fabric of English football and this significant long-term investment into our partnership demonstrates the enduring strength of the England brand.”

New kit
On the same day as the contract extension announcement, Umbro is also launching a fresh kit for the start of the England team's Euro 2012 qualifying campaign, building on the tailoring, style and performance elements of the previous home and current away kits.
