Scottish football clubs across the men’s and women’s top divisions will wear their away kits in their pre-Christmas fixtures to support a campaign aimed at combating homelessness in the country.

The SPFL and SWPL have united for the Shelter Scotland #NoHomeKit campaign that is raising awareness about the growing number of people who do not have a safe or secure place to call home.

All SPFL clubs will wear away or third kits for their fixtures on December 23-24, even if they are playing at home and the SWPL will do likewise on December 4.

In the Premiership Rangers travel to play Ross County in the Highlands and Motherwell host Kilmarnock on the 23rd.

On Christmas Eve Celtic play St Johnstone in Glasgow, Aberdeen travel to Paisley for a game against St Mirren, Dundee United take on Hearts at Tannadice and Hibs host Livingston.

Some English clubs, including Tottenham and Brighton, have also committed to supporting the campaign.

SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster said: “We are delighted to support Shelter Scotland’s #NoHomeKit this season and are committed to helping this worsening problem in Scotland.

“The details of the growing housing crisis in this country are staggering and we are proud that we are able to help in some way. I can’t wait to see our clubs leave their home shirts at home for this historic round of fixtures.”

Shelter Scotland director Alison Watson said: “No child or family should have to spend Christmas without a home, yet a record number of families in Scotland are trapped in temporary accommodation.

“Many have been since last Christmas. That’s why we are incredibly grateful to the football clubs and communities who are supporting our #NoHomeKit campaign by donning their away colours and joining the fight for home.”

Supporters are also urged to back the campaign by wearing their away or third kits. Donations can be made by texting HOME to 70800 or visiting
