Scimitar Sportswear x EU Visit Cayman Islands
2021 saw Scimitar Sportswear partner with Visit Cayman Islands’ UK/EU Tourism Board on a number of exciting initiatives.
As a brand, Scimitar have produced sportswear for a number of national team sports and companies for the Cayman Islands, and it’s exciting for us to work with the UK/EU tourism department to raise the profile of the perfect getaway holiday destination.
The centrepiece of our partnership was the amazing £8,000 Cayman Marathon Giveaway, which saw entrants compete for a place in the Cayman Islands marathon, with accommodation & flights paid for. With over 10,000 entries, the demand was certainly there.
The British connection is there for all to see. EU Visit Cayman Islands have invested alongside Scimitar in a number of notable projects, including the sponsorship and production of free recycled technical t-shirts for a number of sports clubs, including Richmond Rugby, Worcester RFC & Old Cranleighans.
We built an online shop for Team Cayman, the free t-shirt initiative. Not only did players of each club receive a free t-shirt, but any additional purchases saw 50% of proceeds being donated to the Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI), a charity based in Little Cayman who’s goal it is to protect and nurture our coral reefs.
If you missed out on our original competition, you needn’t worry. Following on from the success of last year’s Cayman Islands Marathon Virtual Race, the Virtual Running Challenge is back, and it’s not too late to enter.
Enter the challenge to achieve your fitness goals and experience the best of what the Cayman Islands has to offer, all while training and running from anywhere in the world. You’ll be in with a chance of winning a host of great prizes, including a holiday to the Cayman Islands and a place in the on-island race for 2022. Find out more and enter the competition here.
We’re excited to continue our partnership with EU Visit Cayman Islands. As they look forward to a number of new sponsorship opportunities in 2022, we will plan some exciting collaborations that will be revealed in good time.
