The EIS names Kukri as new kit partner

11 February 2022

The English Institute of Sport (EIS) has announced a new partnership with Kukri that will see the global sportswear manufacturer become Official Kit Supplier to the EIS until 2025.

British brand Kukri has a strong reputation for quality and already works with a number of high-profile sporting organisations such as British Gymnastics, Commonwealth Games England and Loughborough University.

The EIS employs more than 350 people who deliver outstanding support in areas such as science, medicine, technology and innovation that enables sports and athletes to excel. It is unlike any other organisation in high performance sport, with an unrivalled network of experts in their fields delivering people-first solutions to over 40 elite sports.

A strong and public commitment to sustainability has seen Kukri pledge to reduce their impact on the planet by using recycled materials where possible and maintaining high ethical standards throughout the business. Kukri’s commitment in this area aligns to the EIS’s ambition to become a more sustainable organisation.

Director of Communications at the EIS Tash Carpenter said: “The decision to partner with Kukri was easy for us, the quality of their products is well established, and we have shared values of collaboration, excellence, innovation and care. We also both have a commitment to provide outstanding support to athletes and sports. The kit that Kukri have provided us looks fantastic and we really look forward to working closely together over the next few years to further bring this partnership to life.”

Sales Director at Kukri Sport Josh Beal said: “The team at Kukri Sports are proud and excited to be partnering with the EIS and providing high quality kit. Kukri will be providing a full UK product offering, which means they can offer a quick and dependable service, for the whole of the EIS range.

Kukri will be working with the EIS to develop new products and are committed to offering a diverse and inclusive range, for all members.”

The initial partnership will run until 2025 and will see Kukri provide kit for the EIS’s 350-strong workforce, including performance clothing and bags.
