How We Play
Mitre is the world’s original sports brand. For nearly 200 years, we have been shouting our love and passion for the game.
Our story began in a leather tannery in Huddersfield, England in 1817. Even then, we were pushing the boundaries and striving to make sports equipment better. Two centuries on, the same impulse still powers everything we do.
Mitre is British, with a primary focus on the country’s most illustrious sporting export: football. But we also play many other sports, which we approach with the same dedication and focus.
Our industrial roots mean we take the technical side of our business very seriously. We value innovation, and we work hard to ensure our products always deliver.
The compelling combination of history and technical expertise has made Mitre part of sports history.
For example, we were the first official supplier to the English Football League and FA Cup competitions.
But despite this professional seal of approval, Mitre understands sport at whatever level it’s played. That’s why we develop products for all ranks – from junior to recreational to professional.
Ultimately, Mitre is the brand at the heart of the game.
Mitre stands for ‘Real Soccer’
‘Real Soccer’ is still played every day on the muddy pitches, sun drenched parks and school playgrounds around the world.
This is where the true spirit of the game can be found.
And this is where you’ll find Mitre, the world’s original Soccer brand.
Soccer is the game that unites the world – and Mitre is its longest-established supporter.
