At Scimitar we work with over a thousand clients, from grassroots clubs all the way up to governing bodies, as well as start-up businesses up to internationally-recognised brands.
As we approach our 13th year as a business, we wanted to let you know about some of the leading sporting governing bodies we work with – not just in the UK but also from around the world.
Scimitar have been Official Merchandise Partner of British Triathlon since 2020.

Most importantly, we aim to use sustainable materials where possible for all ranges, and organic cotton options for items such as hoodies – such as the ones in the photo below which were very popular with the younger audience at the annual Schools Biathlon event.
We cater for all age ranges, producing kit for juniors all the way up to the professional athletes. We have also worked closely with Pentathlon GB to help drive revenue streams while offering services such as personalisation of kit for their Laser Run event.

Bermuda National Olympic Committee
Scimitar produced training and leisurewear for the Bermuda National Olympic Committee for both the Caribbean Games and the Commonwealth Games in 2022.
After needing kit for their athletes competing across five different sports, we developed premium custom apparel for the Bermuda National Olympic Committee ahead of both the Carribean Games in Guadeloupe and the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, finished in their stylish blue and pink
And it turned out to be a memorable one, as they picked up two medals, their best-ever haul in the history of the Commonwealth Games.
After winning the gold in 2018 on the Gold Coast, Australia, Bermuda’s Dame Flora Jane Duffy became the first triathlete to retain a Commonwealth Games title by claiming the gold in the women’s elite race in Birmingham. The current Olympic and World Champion won a World Triathlon Championship Series event in Hamburg in June, and was certainly back at her best for the Games as she pulled clear of Great Britain’s Georgia Taylor-Brown to claim the top prize.
The combination of gold medals and Scimitar sportswear is something we’ll be seeing a lot more of in the future.
