Classic Football Shirts, a vintage football shirts retailer has moved to new headquarters in Hyde to accommodate its growth, with sales on track to rise by 25% this year and staff numbers increasing. The company has 87 staff and expects its workforce to increase to around 100 this year.

Classic Football Shirts, which was founded in 2006 by student pals Matthew Dale and Doug Bierton in their final year at the University of Manchester, has invested £4.5m in a new warehouse and offices in Hyde, Tameside. The company was previously based on Edwin Road near the Etihad Campus in Manchester. The company’s new base spans 70,000 square feet and is more than twice the size of its former HQ.

The company sells pre-owned vintage and rare football shirts as well as clearance ranges of kits from clubs across the world. Its website also features a collection of players’ match-worn shirts. Recently it has also begun selling US sports shirts.
