Alcis Sports, a performance wear brand based in India, has partnered with Inspire Institute of Sport (IIS), under which the company will exclusively provide its technologically advanced sportswear for all athletes of the institute. The tie-up between the two entities will allow IIS athletes to train in apparel equipped with the latest garment technologies.

Produced in India with the latest features such as dry-tech (moisture management), soil release, anti-odour, anti-static and anti-UV, the products will be specifically designed keeping the athletes' training requirements and weather conditions in mind.

IIS is India’s first privately-funded high-performance training centre, and was recently inaugurated in Vijayanagar, Karnataka. It offers talented young athletes full scholarships and access to world class training, infrastructure, and sports science support to ensure they can get the support needed to succeed at the global stage.

"Being a brand that is completely Indian, we feel privileged to be associated with Inspire Institute of Sport, as it kickstarts a movement to take India’s sporting talents to the next level. We are extremely proud to be able to do our bit for our young athletes through our expertise and technical knowhow in high-quality apparel technology, as they strive to bring glory for the country in global sports events," Roshan Baid, managing director, Alcis Sports said.

"The Inspire Institute of Sport was established with a vision to see the tricolour fly high at the global sports stage and we are thrilled to have a partner that is equally passionate about Indian sports. As a homegrown athletics wear brand, Alcis Sports understands the requirements of Indian athletes and we are looking forward to working with them to ensure our athletes get the best suited apparel for their needs," Rushdee Warley, CEO, Inspire Institute of Sport said.
