Scottish Athletics new kit deal with Spain’s Joma Sport

Scottish Athletics has announce an extension to its agreement with Spanish firm Joma Sport as its kit suppliers.

The new contract with Joma will run for the next four years through to the end of 2026 — taking in the next Commonwealth Games in Australia.

Athletes representing Scotland have been wearing the Joma kit since early in 2018 when the first agreement with the company was announced.

That was extended later in the year through to 2022 and the Birmingham Commonwealth Games.

Discussions over recent months saw the partnership extend and that now runs from 2023-2026.

More than 30 Scottish Athletics clubs now wear the Joma kit in different designs.

Joma is based in Portillo de Toledo near Madrid.

“We’re absolutely delighted to agree and announce a contract extension with Joma,” said Scottish Athletics CEO Colin Hutchison.

“The new four year deal takes us through after the next Commonwealth Games and simply underlines and confirms our already strong relationship.

“Scotland kit made by Joma has been really popular with athletes selected for representative honours across all the disciplines over the past few years.

“I know athletes will be pleased to hear we will continue with Joma through to 2026 and they are being worn in track and field, cross country, Para athletics, hill running and ultra running.

“The partnership further extends to kit for our 4J Studios National Athletics Academy, the Commonwealth Youth Games, the District XC Champs and Glasgow Jaguars.

“We’re really looking forward to working with Joma to keep on delivering superb international kit for Scotland teams and to work with them to help the sport in other areas, too.

“Between us we feel the partnership is crucial to help to maintain momentum and build growth in the sport in Scotland.”

Joma general manager Alberto López said: “We are delighted to continue our partnership with Scottish  Athletics, with the last few years only highlighting the level of confidence and trust that exists between us.

“The support and belief maintained since the inception of our partnership is testament to both organisations, and we are positive that the partnership will only continue to strengthen.”
