The football association has signed a deal that will see five collections, which will be for men and women, launched in August, from what it calls the “preppy 1904” range to a more youthful trophy range.

The body will work in partnership with brand management company Global Brands Group to develop the clothes, which will include FIFA-branded T-Shirts and Jackets.
