World Cup Artwork in Macclesfield

Cheshire East Council is delighted to be working with Umbro to pay tribute to Macclesfield born England striker Peter Crouch.

Umbro who supply the England kit approached Cheshire East Council to ask if they could use the wall of the pavilion in South Park as part of their ‘Tailored by…..’ campaign.

A red number nine, Crouch’s squad number, is painted on a white background with the words ‘Tailored by Macclesfield’ underneath.

Similar paintings have been created in the home towns of the rest of the England squad.

An Umbro painting team went to work overnight last Tuesday as soon as the squad numbers were announced.

The sports manufacturer has also given the council some money to involve young people in creating a mural to replace the artwork when the World Cup has finished.

Councillor Andrew Knowles, Cabinet member for health and wellbeing said: “World Cup fever is gripping the country at the moment and I hope for the next few weeks this will become a local landmark.

“It’s a bright distinctive painting and one that I hope the people of Macclesfield will take to their hearts.

“I hope the England team do well in South Africa and hopefully Peter Crouch can help out with a few goals.”
