Joe Bloggs Clothing, the iconic boyswear specialists are planning to sponsor 12 young skateboarders from the UK to form a team of elite, skating champions. They are hopeful that with their support, the skating team can improve their skills, taking them to a higher level in the sport and allowing them to compete in national competitions.

Joe Bloggs will be working alongside the online networking portal for young skateboarders, Ministry of Sk8. Ministry of Sk8 is a website that allows skate enthusiasts the chance to compete with others across the country. By doing so, skateboarders can massively enhances their skills and raise their profiles, helping them to gain sponsorship for future success.

The Ministry of Sk8 website also ranks skaters, and the top 12 ranked skaters are to form a group of elite riders. This team will receive sponsorship from Joe Bloggs Boys Clothing who will support them as they continue to improve their skills. In time, the team will be at a high enough level to compete in competitions and showcase their skateboarding skills at national events.

Bushra Ahmed, the PR and Marketing Director for Joe Bloggs said; "Joe Bloggs Clothing has always been influenced by street sports, and street fashion such as boys hoodies. Sports such as skating are right up our street so this sponsorship is the perfect match for us. We hope that our involvement is going to inspire young skateboarders and allow them to perform to the best of their ability. Hopefully, young skaters can take their skills to the next level.

"We sponsored Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton when he was just a young boy, and look at him now! We hope that this sponsorship will help us to find the skating stars of the future too."

Scott Forshaw of Ministry of Sk8 also commented on the partnership; "We represent young skaters who have not been signed or sponsored, skaters who love the sport and have enthusiasm and passion for skateboarding. Joe Bloggs is an iconic brand so securing sponsorship from them is a massive achievement for us. With their support, I am sure that we can find the skateboarding stars of the future, skaters as successful as Ross McGouran. I think having Joe Bloggs on board will help us to encourage more young boys and girls to take up skateboarding."
