Kukri Sports today announced a new 5 year extension with British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) as their Official Teamwear Partner. The deal extends the current 6 year partnership between the two and will see the relationship grow to over a decade of working together in the Higher Education sports sector.
The partnership sees the two organisations working in tandem to help university sports’ teams in the UK by providing excellent performance and leisure teamwear and sees Kukri as the official retail partner of BUCS at all major events.
The agreement has been welcomed by Kukri Group Executive Chairman, Andy Ronnie:
“We are extremely proud to be extending our partnership with BUCS for a further five years. Having supported the university sector by delivering quality, bespoke teamwear for some time now we look forward to continuing our excellent relationship with BUCS and the sector as a whole. We value the work that BUCS delivers across a vast range of sports and their commitment to improving the sporting experience for students is one that we strongly support ourselves.”
Adam Priestley, BUCS Head of Marketing Communications and Sponsorship added:
“The standard of university sport has never been better and the pursuit of excellence requires the best teamwear. Kukri’s experience over the years in supplying elite teams with performance kit, and meeting the demands of university sport means we have a great working relationship with them and we have a joint passion for improving the student athlete experience. We look forward to continuing our partnership and working with the sector, as university sport continues its’ upward trajectory.”
