Kukri Sports announced as official supplier to the World Gymnastics Championships, Liverpool 2022
International sportswear brand Kukri Sports has today been announced as the Official Workforce / Volunteer Uniform Supplier to the World Gymnastics Championships, Liverpool 2022.
Kukri will be producing and supplying the official volunteer and workforce uniforms for the Championships, kitting out over 600 volunteers and staff who will be supporting the delivery of the event across spectator services, digital and media, sport, hospitality and event operations.
Kukri is a global sportswear provider and a multisport specialist with over 20 years’ experience across elite sports, grassroots clubs and education providers.
The UK based brand is the official sportswear provider to some of sport’s leading institutions across the globe and currently supports over 100 sports. It is already a partner to British, Scottish and Welsh Gymnastics, as well as Team England.
On the new partnership Josh Beal, Sales Director at Kukri Sports, said:
“It is great to be supporting the volunteers and staff at the World Gymnastics Championships, in Liverpool, this year. As proud partners to British, Scottish and Welsh Gymnastics, it is an event we are taking huge interest in as a business, and even more so with the Championships being held in the north-west. Many of our staff will be at the event watching and we can’t wait to see Kukri supporting the hard-working volunteers around the venue.”
Gemma Williams Fox, Championships Director of the World Gymnastics Championships Liverpool 2022, added:
“I am delighted to confirm Kukri Sports as an official supplier for our volunteer and workforce uniform at the 2022 World Gymnastics Championships in Liverpool. Based locally, and already working closely with the sport of gymnastics, we are excited to announce their involvement and look forward to working closely with them to deliver a world-class event. I know our workforce and volunteers will look and feel absolutely amazing in their Kukri kit.”
Volunteers are integral to any major sporting event. They represent the host city, the sport and the event whilst connecting people and bringing communities together. Their enthusiasm, passion and energy create an unforgettable experience and unique event for everyone involved.
With the volunteers already recruited and making preparations for their involvement in the Championships, what they will be wearing has started to generate lots of excitement.
The bespoke Kukri uniform will be unveiled in October, and will contribute to the overall ‘look’ of the Championships and more importantly, help to create a real sense of pride and unity across the workforce, as they prepare to deliver a world-class event which will put Liverpool in the global spotlight once again.
The World Gymnastics Championships Liverpool 2022 is an Olympic qualifying event for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, and will be one of the largest international sporting events ever to be held in the city. 550 gymnasts from 75 countries will compete in the global event at the M&S Bank Arena, which will take place from 29 October to 6 November 2022.
