Kukri Sports announced as official kit supplier to Commonwealth Games England
Athletes selected to represent England at next year’s Commonwealth Games will be competing in Kukri kit, as the international sportswear company has been named as official kit supplier to Commonwealth Games England (CGE).
Kukri Sports will supply all England delegation and competition wear for Glasgow 2014, as well as produce a range of replica team products for fans.
The agreement between CGE and Kukri comes after months of consultation and research, including the involvement of a panel of athletes who fed into the design process.
Double Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes (pictured above), who is now the president of CGE, said: “I know how important a high quality and bespoke kit is to the athletes and their ultimate performance, and I’m delighted Kukri have met our objectives and risen to the challenge.
“It will be great to see athletes involved in the kit design process, which was certainly a deciding factor in our search for our official kit supplier.”
Based in Preston, Lancashire, Kukri has offices across the Commonwealth and currently supplies team wear for more than 76 sports and partner elite English teams including England Netball, London Wasps plus Somerset and Lancashire County Cricket Clubs. In 2008 and 2011 they provided England’s kit for the Commonwealth Youth Games.
