On Friday April 27th, men, women and children across the UK are encouraged to don their favourite football shirt in support for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.

Whether at work, school or simply out and about in your local community, Football Shirt Friday is all about raising funds to go towards life-saving research into bowel cancer.

Inspired by England legend Bobby Moore and his iconic exchange of shirts with Pele at the 1970 World Cup, this is your chance to do your bit for an important cause with a £5 donation to the Bobby Moore Fund.

In the run-up to the big day, loaded has teamed up with Cancer Research UK and online retailer Classic Football Shirts to bring you a little inspiration with our ranking of the 15 most iconic Premier League kits since the division started way back in 1992. Let’s kick things off…
