The Lancashire-based company will be providing Team GB with a bespoke suiting range to be worn at official events in the UK and in Rio in the lead up the Olympic Games and beyond, as well as dress Team GB for the closing parade, which will provide a thrilling opportunity to put their work in front of a global audience of almost 900 million.
James Saunders, managing director at Simon Jersey, said: “We’re extremely excited to be a part of the Olympics journey for Team GB and can’t wait to follow the team on their path to success at the 2016 games. As a British brand working with our home team, it’s an incredible opportunity for Simon Jersey to show our support.
“This is the first time a corporate wear supplier has been awarded the contract to supply Team GB. Here at Simon Jersey we know how to make powerful impressions and have extensive experience in building strong teams through providing quality designs. This means we’re well prepared to kit out such a diverse team, and we’re honoured to be announcing our partnership with such a prestigious organisation.”
