As the Official Teamwear Partner for England Athletics, Kukri is ready to support our affiliated clubs with its full teamwear offering.
To help show first-hand how clubs can benefit from working with Kukri, we recently paid a (socially distanced) visit to Peterborough & Nene Valley AC (PANVAC) as the club shared its excitement for its new Kukri kit partnership. The kit launch has been a particularly momentous occasion for the club as it represents a new era after the merger of Peterborough Athletics Club and Nene Valley Harriers. Watch the video below to hear from club volunteers and members as they discuss their pride in pulling on their new Kukri vests and explain why the relationship has worked so well for them.
Since becoming the Official Teamwear Partner of England Athletics back in 2019, Kukri has worked closely with England Athletics to design a bespoke range with optimum performance in mind. Kukri’s core apparel range uses fabrics that have undergone independent lab testing as well as rigorous field testing to help ensure comfort, reduced fabric weight and improved fit.
Kukri can provide bespoke designs to suit all clubs with multiple personalisation choices. As well as assisting with design and production, Kukri can also work with clubs to create an online club shop – offering a complete e-commerce platform with delivery fulfilled direct to the buyer.
Josh Beal, Sales Director for GB & Europe at Kukri, said: “As part of our partnership with England Athletics, we’re delighted to be able to support clubs across England with their club teamwear requirements. It was fantastic to be able to visit Peterborough & Nene Valley AC and for Kukri to play a role in what is an exciting time for the club. We look forward to continuing to work with them as well as supporting more clubs across the entire England Athletics family.”
Elaine Larkins, Chair of Peterborough & Nene Valley AC, said: “We opened up the design of the vest to our members - we asked them to come up with a design. We chose five, as a committee, and then we took bits from each of those five and then approached Kukri to help us.
“The kit is fantastic. They [Kukri] sponsor England Athletics so we thought, well, it’s got to be good. Our athletes want to be up there, top of the podium, with their nice new vests on!”
Kukri also provides kit for England Athletics teams, Masters programme, Youth Talent Programme, coaches and officials.
