British sports brand PlayerLayer and Team Surrey have agreed a partnership making PlayerLayer the new University Sport kit supplier.
Team Surrey is the student sport arm of the University of Surrey, which is consistently recognised as one of the top universities in the UK and was named The Times and Sunday Times University of the Year 2016. Since its inception in 2010, Team Surrey has made considerable progress in the British Universities and Colleges Sport table, rising over 40 places.
This year, the University of Surrey celebrates its 50th Anniversary in Guildford, Surrey, marking the establishment of the university with the grant of its Royal Charter in 1966.
“We are excited to be entering a partnership with Team Surrey. In their short history, they have already achieved a great deal, and we look forward to playing a part in their further development in the future years. The University itself has an unquestionable thirst for success. It is one of only eight universities to be ranked within the top 10 of all three major national league tables for 2016, and was voted the Times and Sunday Times University of the Year, also in 2016.
With their home at Surrey Sports Park, Team Surrey boasts some of the country’s finest sporting facilities - regularly frequented by professional and international outfits. We will help enhance Team Surrey, the brand, through a powerful range which pays tribute to their blue and regal gold colours, as well as the famous Stag.”
Roderick Bradley – Marketing Director, PlayerLayer
“We are delighted by the announcement of the new partnership between Team Surrey and PlayerLayer. They will provide us with playing kit and leisurewear for all our student sport clubs and students who participate in physical activity while studying at Surrey.
PlayerLayer delivers quality products of the very highest standard and have produced sports kit for our clubs which makes them feel proud to represent Team Surrey and wear the blue and gold.
Student sport at Surrey has grown immensely over the last 6 years; we have climbed up the BUCS league table to reach the Top 30, but also deliver a strong social sport initiative including intramural leagues. We look forward to working with PlayerLayer on the next step in our journey as a top provider of sport and physical activity at a top University.”
