Uniform distribution & accreditation centre for Olympic
Apr '12
The first fully operational London 2012 Games-time venue has been officially launched with Seb Coe and Paul Deighton among the first to collect their Games-time uniforms at the Uniform Distribution and Accreditation Centre (UDAC).

The centre will be the main base for accreditation and uniform distribution for up to 70,000 Games Makers who will volunteer at London 2012, along with paid staff and contractors. The centre will also supply uniforms to LOCOG staff and Technical Officials.

LOCOG Chair Seb Coe said: 'It's a proud moment to be here alongside our fantastic Games Makers picking up our Games uniforms and accreditation.

'The Games are almost upon us and our Games Makers will be front and centre of the welcome we give the world.'

Additional uniform distribution centres will open in Weymouth and Portland, Manchester, Cardiff, Newcastle, Glasgow and Coventry, for Games Makers and staff working at Games venues outside of London.

The Games Maker uniform was designed by LOCOG in association with London 2012's official sportswear provider adidas. The Technical Official uniform was designed in association with London 2012's official clothing and homeware supplier Next.
