Leicester Tigers, the Guinness Premiership champions, are gearing up to stage their first Corporate Rugby Sevens Tournament, and have chosen Gymphlex’s new GFORCE range to ensure the competing teams look their best.
Wearing some of GFORCE’s state-of-the-art performance apparel will be teams from Lucozade, Jaguar, HSBC and Caterpillar, amongst many others, who will be battling to win the first-ever National Corporate Sevens Trophy on June 4, 2010.
Gymphlex has an historical link to Leicester. Owned since 1906 by Leicester’s Greenlees family, and sister company to Grahame Gardner Ltd, Harry Greenlees, the son of Gymphlex’s founder, captained Leicester Tigers and gained international recognition with Scotland.
As well as being the man who launched the Tigers Supporters Club, Harry also introduced Sevens rugby to England.
“Tigers Events are very pleased to be working with an established and respected local manufacturer,” says Matt Poole, director at Tigers Events Ltd.
“The quality and design of the GFORCE rugby kit is first class and fit to grace any Premiership or International rugby ground. We are proud to be kitting out our teams in such fantastic looking kit for the first-ever National Corporate Sevens tournament to be held at Welford Road.
“Many of the teams have had very specific requirements with regard to their individual kit, and Gymphlex have responded to each one quickly and professionally. They have been a dream to work with from start to finish and we look forward to working with them at future events.”
Says James Greenlees, managing director of Gymphlex: “The Corporate Sevens Tournament sounds like a thrilling event for any business to be involved in.
“Although my own rugby playing days are over, Gymphlex were delighted to be approached to supply the kits for this huge event. It is a great honour to be involved, and through the tournament amateur rugby players will have the opportunity to play on a premier division pitch, and feel the atmosphere of a professional stadium.
“Although not competing, I am certainly looking forward to attending this very special event.”
All of the teams will be playing in professional quality coordinated sportswear from Gymphlex, including the new GFORCE dye-sublimated rugby shirts and shorts. All garments will be manufactured in the team’s chosen colours, with personalised branding for Tiger’s Events and each participating corporate team.
