2.5% of every order goes to our charity, Miss Kick Foundation, who provide free opportunities for girls to get into sport.
Former footballer, Grace Vella, believed more needed to be done to inspire girls to get into sport. She had played football all her life and experienced the positive impact sport has on physical and mental wellbeing. However, she felt as a girl who loved football, there was a lack of options for her when it came to clothing and sportswear. This inspired her to launch Miss Kick in 2018 at her Dad’s football tournament at the age of 21.
For her, by her
What started out as Grace hand printing t-shirts at her Mum’s kitchen table, has now grown into a global community who share the same passion for women’s football and sport. The Miss Kick team is female led by a small group of women from their MKHQ in Manchester. They pride themselves on putting her first in football first and creating products that break down barriers to sport participation.
More than just clothing
We believe every girl deserves an equal chance to perform to her best, on and off the pitch. That’s why we donate 2.5% of every order to our charity, Miss Kick Foundation, who create free opportunities for girls to get involved in the game. We also co-ordinate a Community Programme which enables girls to make friends with others like them who share a passion for football across the world.
Through our Community Programme, we provide online and in-person events, competitions and enable girls to make friends with others like them, across the world.
