Rival Kit has won the contract to supply sports kit to IUDRO registered universities ahead of the 2020 season.
The Edinburgh-based start-up has made the commitment in good time ahead of the start of the season, when the National Championships take place in March 2020.
Commenting on the news, Alejandro Perez-Llabata, chief executive of IUDRO, said: “We’re very happy to award Rival Kit with the Season’s contract, because of their perspective on the market and what they bring to the table; eco-friendly and ethically produced items, at student-friendly prices.”
Adding: “The UK National Championships will attract universities from the UK and abroad, as well as the many fans and alumni of our top-tier competing universities – this is a great way of uniting teams together.”
Established in 2017, Rival Kit provides fast, reliable and student-orientated sportswear. As two University of Edinburgh undergraduates and ex-performance athletes, founders Ryan Morrison and Jenny Stevenson understand student needs within the custom sports clothing industry.
They said that having worked with Universities for quite some time, their process works in parallel with University procedures.
Morrison commented: “We are keen to not just stop here, but to keep pushing ourselves forwards to be the best that we can be, just as all of the pilots are every day in training.
We are constantly improving our technical garments, ensuring that we test them out in all conditions: both on the water and off the water, on the field and off the field, rain or shine.
He continued: “We’re absolutely delighted to be working with the world’s first university-dedicated drone racing business, and be a part of this ever-growing industry – we’re also happy to announce e-sports jerseys will be available to purchase on our website in the coming months.”
Perez-Llabata concluded: “The whole purpose of the 2020 Season to dramatically increase the quality of the previous year, to produce a premium sports event. This is a step in the right direction.”
