In recognition of the Riverside celebrating its 25th birthday, the club have commissioned a commemorative third shirt and MFC Foundation’s logo will be proudly displayed on it.
The club’s Principal Partner Kindred have donated the 32Red naming rights on the front of our new Riverside anniversary shirts to the MFC Foundation, and this will be worn by Boro's first team for the first time at Cardiff City on Saturday.
Celebrating 25 years at the Riverside, the design features the stadium roofline and the centre-spot coordinates, on the retail edition.
“It is an honour for the Foundation to be on a very special shirt,” says Helena Bowman, head of MFC Foundation. “This is an historic season for the club and the Riverside and for us to be part of that history is humbling.
“We must thank the Kindred Group for donating their sponsorship space to us and allowing the Foundation logo, a badge of honour for us, to be on a unique shirt and help raise our profile. This means so much to us.”
Helena continues: “To think it is already 25 years since the club moved into a new home. They have faced many challenges in that time. We too face challenges like we have never faced before.
“We are living in difficult and demanding times, but we are doing all we can to reach out to those in need, to provide help, to inspire confidence in communities and provide hope for individuals.
“Our mission is simple, by harnessing the passion and power of the club brand, we work to raise aspirations and improve the life chances of young people and adults across Teesside.
“We work in some of the most disadvantaged areas of Teesside. We engage with those who need our support through the delivery of inspiring sport, education, health and inclusion projects.
“We’re very proud of what we do as a Foundation and we hope Teesside is proud of us.”
