  • (1888PressRelease) July 21, 2020 - SUFFOLK, England - “FC MASKS”, a website where UK football fans can buy football face masks, announces the launch of its new website at, which helps stop the spread of Covid-19.

    The new “FC MASKS” website uses data from different e-commerce platforms (such as Amazon, eBay, Etsy and official club shops) to display face masks and face coverings that are football-themed to each of the 20 clubs who compete in England’s Premier League competition.

    The launch of the new “FC MASKS” website comes just five days before a new law comes into force throughout the United Kingdom (July 24, 2020), requiring people to wear face coverings in shops and supermarkets – or face a fine of up to £100.

    The new face mask law in all UK shops has been introduced to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus in the United Kingdom by reducing the amount of infection that can be caused by coughing, sneezing, breathing and talking.

    In a statement on July 14, 2020, Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock explained how the new face mask law will help combat the high risk to UK retail workers from Covid-19.

    Mr Hancock told the UK Parliament, “The death rate of sales and retail assistants is 75% higher among men, and 60% higher among women than in the general population. So as we restore shopping, so we must keep our shopkeepers safe.”

    Speaking about how the new law will be enforced, the Health and Social Care Secretary added, “Under the new rules, people who do not wear a face covering will face a fine of up to £100, in line with the sanction on public transport and just as with public transport, children under 11 and those with certain disabilities will be exempt.”

    “Should an individual without an exemption refuse to wear a face covering, a shop can refuse them entry and can call the police if people refuse to comply, the police have the formal enforcement powers and can issue a fine.”

    FC MASKS has compiled data from Google Trends that shows the percentage of people searching on Google UK for football face masks from English Premier League clubs has significantly increased in the past 7 days since Mr Hancock announced the new face mask law (July 14, 2020).

    Speaking about the launch of FC MASKS, website manager Darren Clarke, a marketing consultant based in Suffolk, UK, said:

    “As UK society opens up after lockdown there will be many rules on wearing face masks in order to stop the spread of Covid-19. Football fans in particular are looking for face masks from their favourite club, but due to the high demand many clubs have run out.”

    “FC MASKS lists face masks from all the Premier League clubs. This saves people a lot of time and it also increases the likelihood of them buying a face mask. Hopefully more people buying and wearing masks will help stop the spread of Covid-19, especially before the winter, and save lives.”
