Sport kit and uniform partner unveiled

University of Edinburgh Sport & Exercise and Edinburgh University Sports Union announce sports clothing and uniform partnership.

Following a competitive tender process University of Edinburgh Sport & Exercise and Edinburgh University Sports Union are delighted to announce that Playerlayer have been appointed as a joint partner for the next 6 years.

The contract, which begins from 01/08/2019 is believed to be largest of its kind ever agreed in the higher education sector, includes the supply of sports kit and apparel to all University of Edinburgh Sports Clubs, Sports Union staff and volunteers as well as UoE Sport & Exercise staff uniforms.  

We are delighted to be working with Playerlayer and are confident that this partnership will play a key role in our exciting future ambitions for sport and exercise at Edinburgh

The tender was conducted under University of Edinburgh procurement guidelines and published through OJEU (Official Journal of the European Union). Each application was scored against a wide range of criteria including garment range, design and quality, sustainability, and price. There was a great deal of interest in the tender with 11 different companies shortlisted.

The decision to appoint Playerlayer was made by a panel of both staff and student representatives from University of Edinburgh Sport & Exercise and Edinburgh University Sports Union.

Yet again, University of Edinburgh Sport have shown that we are not afraid to dream big! What stood PlayerLayer out from the crowd was the quality of their clothing, and their ambition and innovation to create a new sustainable ‘Eco’ clothing range. PlayerLayer’s motto is belong, and their bespoke offering is what gives us our identity and our sense of belonging. #WeAreEdinburgh
