Athletics Ireland has announced this morning that Joma Sport is to be its new Official Performance and Sportswear Partner.

The new partnership which will come into effect on January 1st 2020, and will see Joma Sport supply Athletics Ireland with a full selection of team wear, including performance apparel for all international competitions.

Joma Sport will also supply training kit and leisurewear for medal ceremonies, travelling and public appearances.

The new bespoke Joma Sport kit which will be designed and revealed in January will be worn for the first time by Irish athletes at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in China on March 13th.

“Athletics Ireland is delighted to be working with Joma Sport, a brand that already has a long-established tradition of working with other European and International athletic associations,” said CEO Hamish Adams.

“This 3-year sponsorship deal represents an exciting opportunity for both Athletics Ireland and Joma Sport to deliver great value, both to the national team athletes, and the wider running community in Ireland.”

“Through their long-standing partnership with the Spanish Athletics Federation as well as many other countries worldwide including Wales and Scotland, they have shown a real quality in the development of performance sportswear, and I’m sure our Irish athletes will be excited about the new designs,” added Athletics Ireland President Georgina Drumm.

“Athletics in Ireland continues to go from strength to strength and it is great to see so many young athletes continue to succeed on the international stage,” said Susanne McNamara, Brand Manager for Joma Sport in Ireland.

More information will be announced in due course including the unveiling of the new kit.
