27th Jul 2021

28th July marks one year to go until the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham

Team Wales have announced an exciting collaboration with Nike as preparations continue with one year to go until the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham next July 2022.

Nike have been appointed by Commonwealth Games Wales, the body responsible for taking Team Wales to the Commonwealth Games, to design and produce the kit for the team.

The design has been a project between the Nike designers, Team Wales athletes commission and PSL, the company responsible for producing the leisure wear.

In just 12 months’ time, 72 nations will come together to compete across 22 sports, with Womens T20 Cricket, 3 x 3 Basketball and 3 x 3 Wheelchair Basketball amongst the new sports introduced to the Games.

Team Wales have been busy preparing behind the scenes for their 22nd Commonwealth Games, and despite the pandemic and 16 months of uncertainty across sports, today’s milestone clearly marks a positive countdown to the Games next year.

 

Rennie Keith, Divisional Managing Director at PSL Team Sports said:

“All of us at PSL are honoured to again have been appointed Team Wales’ kit provider for the upcoming games in Birmingham - this time in association with the World’s leading Sportswear brand, Nike. We believe the design insight sessions undertaken have now led us to the most personal, passionate, modern range of kit ever being manufactured for Team Wales and we cannot wait to see the products come to life - both on the podium and on the back of their supporters. Please look out for news of the merchandise range being launched very soon. Ewch Tîm Cymru!”

 

Chris Jenkins, CEO of Commonwealth Games Wales said:

“Team Wales leisure wear kit is one of the most important and exciting areas of our planning. We know that wearing well designed and high-quality kit means so much to the athletes and support staff representing Wales. We are very proud of our collaboration with Nike, and we look forward to showing the design in due course.’’
