Boxing Scotland believes the announcement of its first ever national kit sponsorship deal will help its Gold Coast squad achieve a knockout showing in Australia.
With 11 of Scotland’s best boxers set to represent the country in Queensland, the new partnership with Unique Physique Clothing is seen as a major boost to the team in its preparations for targeting gold on the Gold Coast.
Boxing Scotland says that Unique Physique’s high intensity wear mirrors its own international ambitions to go beyond previous major tournament achievements and bring home a significant medal haul.
The new partnership was announced at Boxing Scotland’s High Performance Centre in Bridgeton, where Scotland’s elite came together for a training session to put both themselves and the high performance wear through its paces.
Fraser Walker, Interim CEO for Boxing Scotland, said: “As our boxers put the finishing touches to their training for this year’s Commonwealth Games, we are delighted to have secured this great partnership with Unique Physique Clothing, which both underlines and enhances our Gold Coast ambitions.
“The new kit sponsorship with Unique Physique Clothing will not only bring a real sense of identity to the team as they proudly represent Scotland on the world stage, it will go a long way in securing Boxing Scotland’s future through its commercial benefits.
“Not only will members of Boxing Scotland receive a discount when purchasing Unique Physique Clothing, our share of profits will go back into the sport at a grassroots level, helping to bring through the next generation of Scottish boxers.”
Vicky Glover, one of Scotland’s two female fighters to compete at this year’s Commonwealth Games, has benefitted from Boxing Scotland’s coaching and is delighted to be representing her country.
The 18-year old British champion from Glasgow, said: “I’m really proud to be competing at the Commonwealth Games in Australia – it really is a dream come true. Getting our own national kit with our unique identity has certainly brought the team closer together and we will compete in Australia with our heads held high.
“Although I may be seen as a slight underdog having moved up from the youths, I’m gunning for gold and can’t wait to get into the ring.”
