Trust Welcomes announcement on childrens' strips

Published on Friday 11th April, 2008 by Celtic Trust

The Trust welcomes the long overdue announcement that Celtic will no longer produce childrens' strips with the Carling logo on them. Since 2003 we have been campaigning continuously for the removal of alcohol branding from strips intended for children. Despite the limited availability of non-branded versions of the strips, it has taken till now, nearly 5 years later, for this decision to be taken. If it is the right decision now, it was right then. We are glad that children will now be able to wear the hoops with pride without having an advert for alcohol slapped across their chests and that parents will no longer need to fend off the demands of their children for "real" Celtic strips as worn by their heroes.
