When Gear Up For Sport be­gan in ear­lier this year, the car re­tailer an­nounced that there were 100 kits up for grabs. How­ever, due to the over­whelm­ing re­sponse re­ceived, this num­ber has now been in­creased to 300 – giv­ing youth sports teams across the UK an even bet­ter chance of win­ning a brand-new kit for their team.

En­tries for Gear Up For Sport kits close on Mon­day, Septem­ber 18. To enter, all you need to do is fill out an en­try form at

The com­pany is also giv­ing teams an­other chance to win with its Team Spirit com­pe­ti­tion.

Sports teams who can cap­ture their team spirit in a photo have the op­por­tu­nity to net a grand cash prize of £2000 for the team kitty.

Arnold Clark’s Face­book fans will de­cide the win­ners of the Team Spirit photo com­pe­ti­tion in an on­line vote on Septem­ber 25.

Ed­die Hawthorne, group chief ex­ec­u­tive and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, said: ‘Our Gear Up For Sport com­pe­ti­tion gives us an op­por­tu­nity to give back to com­mu­ni­ties through­out the UK.

“Now in its fourth year, we’re de­lighted to see the rise in pop­u­lar­ity of the com­pe­ti­tion, and the pos­i­tive re­sponse it has re­ceived.

“Af­ter see­ing we had so many en­trants this year, we de­cided to in­crease the num­ber of kits we’re giv­ing away three­fold. This will put en­trants in bet­ter stead when it comes to se­lect­ing the win­ners.

“We wish ev­ery­one the best of luck and urge them to also enter our Team Spirit photo com­pe­ti­tion, for an­other chance to win.”
