On the brink of their highly anticipated sold out GA21 UK live tour, which will see the critically acclaimed dance music duo return to the live stage for the first time since 2013, Groove Armada (real names Andy Cato and Tom Findlay) are releasing a limited-edition football shirt in aid of charity.
In collaboration with the football merchandiser and social media sensation Bands F.C., half the proceeds will go to the ‘Music Support’ group, which provides support for individuals in the UK music industry suffering from mental, emotional or behavioral health disorders (including but not limited to alcohol and drug addiction). The shirts will be extremely limited in number and are available to purchase at all shows on the tour, as well as online from November 30th.
“Apart from our run of live shows alongside the band, this is next most exciting thing about Groove Armada 21 tour. An exclusive football shirt brought to you in conjunction with the amazing Bands F.C. This brings together some of our favourite things: gorgeous design, a touch of early 80’s football and a song that changed everything for us. Strictly limited edition run, your chance to own a piece of Groove Armada history,” say Groove Armada.
Cato and Findlay are also launching a supporting campaign to supply an under 13, girl’s football team with the limited shirts for the upcoming season. Running alongside the charity aspect, Tom and Andy are inviting girl’s teams to send in a video that best captures their clubs spirit; a goal, a killer tackle, a club anthem, a video of them making as much noise as possible. Entries must be uploaded directly to Twitter or Instagram, tagging the Groove Armada official page. All videos will be reposted via Groove Armada’s social media networks.
