Pompey Support Shelter's #NoHomeKit Campaign

Blues team up with Oxford in battle against homelessness

13 December 2021

Shelter

Portsmouth Football Club are proud to be teaming up with Oxford United in support of Shelter’s #NoHomeKit campaign, which will see both sides ditch their home shirts at the Boxing Day game to raise awareness of homelessness in the UK and help raise money for Shelter.

Homelessness has risen dramatically over the past decade. The pandemic has shown us the importance of having a safe home like never before – yet more than 180,000 households have been made homeless since March 2020.

With a tough winter ahead, even more people could lose their homes. Shelter’s frontline services are working harder than ever to help people find and keep a home this Christmas, but they can’t do it alone.

That’s why Pompey and United have shown their support towards a unique campaign that will see both sides wearing their third kits when Oxford visit Fratton Park on Boxing Day, in support of #NoHomeKit.

Whether watching from the terraces or gathered round the living room TV, football understands what home means. Home gives all fans a sense of identity, belonging and, above all, community.

You can find out more about the excellent work Shelter are doing and make a donation here or buy our popular red and black third shirt, which is available in-store and online here, as we encourage supporters to ditch their home shirts too.

For the first time, we urge you to get behind the Blues, by not wearing blue.
