UoM Sport is delighted to confirm a new partnership with Surridge Sport, their official supplier of high-quality sportswear, match kits, team training kits, and leisurewear.
We have been working hard behind the scenes with Surridge to ensure that we deliver the perfect products for the UoM Sport community, set to launch in September 2023. They will also take over the online retail side of the brand, creating a new online sales presence for UoM Sport products.
Following lengthy discussions and tender presentations, it was determined that Surridge had the perfect combination of quality and ambitious standards, which complement those of the University.
Surridge was the standout supplier and received positive feedback from students and staff involved in the selection process. The breadth and range they offer are second to none, and the new partnership will build on the visual identity of UoM Sport and establish Team Manchester at the heart of our performance strategy.
Andrew Miller, Business Operations Manager for UoM Sport, commented.
“We are looking forward to establishing a long-term partnership with Surridge to provide fantastic value to our students and ensure that we look as good on the field as we are performing on it. Student feedback on what they want has been key in establishing who the right partner is for us to move forward, and the offer from Surridge resonated with our students, and we are all excited to work with them.
“The new kit continues to centre on the university and city heritage with the bee and honeycomb alongside our university crest and colours being integral elements we have built upon. Our Team Manchester athletes will compete under a unified identity to show the strength and depth of our sporting family at the university.”
Danny Vilia, Sales Director at Surridge Sport, conveyed his excitement for the partnership, saying,
“We are delighted to be named as the exclusive kit supplier for The University of Manchester. This collaboration represents a perfect match between two organisations that are deeply committed to sport and its legacy. We look forward to supplying the University’s athletes with our performance attire, helping them perform at their best on and off the pitch. As part of the agreement, students will benefit from our dedicated support services, from efficient order management, timely delivery, and exceptional customer service.”
This exclusive partnership between Surridge Sport and UoM signals an exciting new chapter for both parties, which promises to reaffirm our passion for sporting excellence.
