Skopes named latest commercial partner of Great Britain Lions

Posted by

The tailoring business Skopes are the latest company to be named an official partner for Great Britain Rugby League.

They have supplied the suits for the travelling party and have extended history with the sport, after previously providing for the England side and Leeds Rhinos.

Bob Siswick, Skopes’s Director of Corporate Clothing, said: “We work across a number of sports including football and rugby union, but the strength of our relationship with the city of Leeds makes Rugby League a perfect fit.

“We’re proud of our heritage in offering the best of British tailoring since 1948 – so we’re thrilled that the Great Britain Rugby League team will be in Skopes formal wear when they return to the international stage in New Zealand and Papua New Guinea this autumn.

“But we also wanted to embrace the inclusivity of Rugby League, and we are therefore equally proud to have supplied formal wear to the England Women team for their trips to Australia and PNG, and also to the England Wheelchair team who have had such a successful tour of Australia.

“They are all world-class teams, and we are delighted to have supplied them with world-class clothing.”

Mark Foster, the RFL’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “As the famous Great Britain jersey returns to the sporting stage this weekend, it’s great to be able to confirm this partnership with Skopes to ensure that all our teams on tour this autumn look just as good off the field.

“They have been great supporters of Rugby League for a number of years, but this partnership takes things to another level – and it’s especially pleasing for us that Skopes were just as keen to link up with our England Women and Wheelchair teams, as they step up preparations for the three World Cups we’ll be staging in 2021.”
