Island Games uniforms unveiled

Island Games sponsors Hiscox have unveiled the official Bermuda team kit which will be worn by all of the local competitors.

Selange Gitschner, Marketing Coordinator said: “When it came to thinking about the Bermuda team kit, we wanted something that would stand out and showcase our talented Bermudian athletes.

“A lot of time and thought went into designing this unique and striking kit, designed by Island Embroidery and produced using special heat-sensitive dyes to print the graphic on to the fabric. While it’s a custom for teams to swap their kit, I think quite a few of the Bermudian team will be hanging onto their kit this year!”.

The kit features the company’s distinctive fleur-de-lis logo.

The Games, which are being held in Bermuda for the first time, is expected to attract more than 1,500 athletes from the 24 member islands.

It begins on July 13 with the opening ceremony and finishes on July 19.
