Stockport based retailer Simon Jersey have announced their partnership with Team GB as the Official Team GB Formalwear Supplier for the Tokyo 2020 athletes and coaches for a third consecutive games.
The online retailer, which re-branded in October last year off the back of a successful year of trading, will be providing the suiting for athletes to wear on key occasions in the run up to the games and at formal events.
Selina Spence, head of product at Simon Jersey comments, “This is the third time we have worked with Team GB on suiting and with our online growth and ability to provide a bespoke suit for all athletes, we felt our partnership was important to continue through to Tokyo 2020.
“We have worked closely with Team GB to ensure the suits are perfect for all athletes and coaches. This has involved us sending our teams out to sizing sessions with Tokyo 2020 hopefuls and developing blouses and shirting that complement the suit.”
Tim Ellerton, commercial director at the British Olympic Association said, “We are proud to be partnering with Simon Jersey for a third consecutive games. They have delivered quality suits for the athletes that have been worn with pride and we are already excited to see the suits for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.”
As well as providing the suiting, Simon Jersey will work closely with Team GB throughout the build up to the games on content including video.
