Helston Athletic & Kappa Tie Up A Kit Deal for the 2024-25 season

We are delighted to announce that Helston Athletic Football Club’s senior teams will be wearing Kappa kit again for the 2024-25 season.

Helston Athletic, with a storied history going back 128 years, hail from West Cornwall. The club’s senior men’s team won promotion from the Western League as Champions in April and will play in the Southern League Division One South next season. They join Mousehole AFC and fellow promotion winners Falmouth Town (the Helston v Falmouth clash in April attracted a record crowd of almost 1,200) in step four of the non-league pyramid, ensuring strong Cornish representation in the league next season.

Like all Cornish clubs playing in the higher echelons of non-league football, Helston will spend a lot of time on the road in the coming campaign with around 7,200 miles of travel in prospect. The dedication shown by players and staff in the face of geographical challenges is truly impressive. Back in Helston, work on ground upgrades have already begun with the installation of new floodlights at the club’s Kellaway Park home.

As well as a very successful first team, Helston have development, veteran and flexi squads that each compete in local leagues. In addition, the club’s women’s team competes in the South West Regional Women’s Football League. Apart from the veterans, each of these teams, as well as the walking football team, will be sporting Kappa kit in the coming season.  

 Youth development is also a big part of the Helston set-up with an impressive 17 teams, covering the under-7 to under-18 age ranges. All compete in the Cornwall Youth League with the additional excitement of the under-18’s – also proud wearers of Kappa kit - competing in the FA Youth Cup.

Helston Athletic Chairman Paul Hendy commented:

“As a proud Cornish club, a partnership with Kappa makes a lot of sense for Helston. We’re a community-oriented club and want to keep money within the local economy wherever possible. So the fact that Kappa Teamwear UK is now owned by Truro-based Q Brands means it’s a great fit.”
