The British Olympic Association (BOA) is now seeking tenders for the appointment of the supplier of formal and parade wear for Team GB for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

The partner will supply both the official suit for Team GB to be used on all formal occasions and the distinctive parade uniform for Team GB to be worn at the Opening Ceremony which is watched by millions of TV viewers.

This is an exciting opportunity for one of the UK's leading designers or clothing companies to dress Great Britain's Olympic athletes and showcase the best of British design on an international stage.

Designing and clothing a team of 150 athletes and support staff, of all sizes and ages, is a unique opportunity for a partner to be at the heart of the pinnacle of an athlete's career and the BOA will appoint the very best supplier who can deal with the whole process of production, design and delivery.

Commenting on this tender launch Chief Commercial Officer Hugh Chambers said:
“For many, representing your country at an Olympic Winter Games is a once in a life time achievement. Team GB athletes walking out in to the stadium during the Opening Ceremony in Vancouver will feel a huge sense of pride and we are looking for an exceptional partner to work with who can dress our athletes in a manner fitting for such an occasion”.

Past suppliers include Lee Cooper, Roots, Ben Sherman, Marks & Spencers, Aquascutum and Next.

The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games will take place from 12th to 28th February 2010.
