World-class sportswear at Kukri

Kukri Sports explains why they are a truly international brand

Posted by Rianna Newman | July 01, 2017 | Sports & Leisure

The DNA of Kukri Sports dates back to 1979, when the British Army Gurkhas and RAF joined together to create a stronger rugby club, the Flying Kukris. They officially became one club when in true Kukri Sports tradition, a tailor was tasked with stitching the shirts of both clubs together to create a bespoke playing kit.

In 1999, Kukri was established and inspired by the same values as the Army and RAF soldiers in the Flying Kukris. These values are: quality, pasion, diversity, professionalism and teamwork.

Our mission from the outset was to provide teams with a choice of teamwear and a bespoke identity that encompasses their club colours and heritage. Providing premium sportwear with a professional service, we quickly established ourselves as a leading sports brand.

From humble beginnings, we now pride ourselves on being an international sportswear manufacturer supplying bespoke teamwear for a multitude of sports, with offices around the world from Spain, France and the Netherlands to North America and Australasia with our global headquarters in the UK.

At Kukri Sports we supply sports teams and international schools around the world with exceptional sports kit enabling athletes to perform at the top of their game, whatever the climate, terrain or sport.

Our expertise in the international multisport arena is demonstrated by our partnerships with a huge stable of Commonwealth Games athletes in Team Canada, Team England and Team Northern Ireland.

Kukri Sports are very proud to be partnering with several prestigious schools in the Middle East such as Jumeirah College and the British School Al Khubairat and we are looking forward to a continuing our successful relationships with some of the most prestigious schools in Dubai. We are excited to showcase our commitment to providing quality bespoke teamwear both on and off the field in this part of the world.

We work with state and independent schools worldwide to supply a uniformed kit for their extensive sports offering. From our sales team to our experienced customer service team, we offer all the support needed to ensure schools receive world-class sportswear. We take great pride in delivering an unrivalled service to our customers.

Our approach to account management ensures realistic objectives and timescales are achieved, thereby meeting sporting calendar demands. We provide a professional, unified look across all sports. This ensures pupils stand out when participating in fixtures, competitions and tours.

“Kukri Canada has been a strong supporter of rugby in Alberta for many years, and Rugby Alberta is thrilled to have Kukri continue to support players as the Official Team Apparel Sponsor for Rugby Alberta. Kukri’s commitment to player performance is both on and off the field of play, and it helps our athletes perform well at the national level,” said Denise Fisher, Executive Director at Rugby Alberta. 

Our partnerships in Asia are also hugely successful with our biggest audience being the Hong Kong 7s. As well as supplying the official Hong Kong 7s merchandise Kukri Sports are the official supplier to the Hong Kong Rugby Union teams across men’s, women’s and national age grade. We are hugely proud of these international partnerships and this is demonstrated by the commitment and customer service we show our clients.
