Clapton CFC kit update – first batch of pre-ordered International Brigades shirt arrives in London

As Tom Petty sang, the waiting is the hardest part.

So we must thank everyone who pre-ordered a Clapton CFC kit for their patience while we have quietly been working out how to handle the amazing and unexpected demand.

The story of our Spanish Republic-inspired away shirt somehow went around the world, and friends and comrades, particularly in Spain and Britain, started ordering the away kit faster than our manufacturer Rage Sport could make them.

Never in our wildest dreams did we expect 5,400 kits to be pre-ordered.  More importantly, we have been humbled to hear so many personal stories about the Spanish Republic and the International Brigades. Much, more on that to follow.

The team at Rage have risen to the challenge of fulfilling the orders, working non-stop. Maurizio Affuso from Rage said: “I do not sleep.”

There is finally some good news as Rage have shipped a big batch of shirts – which as you can see from the photo at the top of the page has arrived in East London!

We’ve partnered up with a delivery team at Weengs, which is getting ready to ship them out. They should start arriving at people’s doors within the next week or so.

The rest of the pre-ordered kits are still being made and will be shipped when we receive further deliveries from Rage over the next few weeks.

That means we are hopeful we can start taking further pre-orders soon. Not yet, but soon!

If you wish to find out when we can take pre-orders again, register your email address here and we will email you.

Here’s where our first batch of orders were received, for anyone interested,

We are planning to use some of the income for a permanent commemoration of the International Brigades – we are speaking to the International Brigades Memorial Trust about this.

Thank you so much for your patience. No pasaran!

  5. Hello, I am interested to buy one T-siht size L (Republic, No pasaran)

  6. Here in Brasil once again fascist winds are quietly blowing. There is a dark cloud above our country. The once proudly wear National team shirt became a symbol of radical right wing sympatizers… the 1964 coup d’etat in Brasil is long forgotten and os about to happen again. I see in the Clapton shirt a beacon and a reminder to the new generations in my country to stand against these armamentist hate speeches and segregation policies. Please, send lots of kits to Brasil and help us fight the dictatorial shadow that haunts whole American continent. Obrigado!!… ¡ Fascistas no pasarán !

  7. Really looking forward to my CFC away kit. Once it arrives here in the Irish midlands I will make my way to Clapton for a home game could chance booking for mid November but will hang tough. Also looking forward to a few Ram&Specials in the Windmill. 40 years have past since the last time I there did sup….. No Pasaran
