World Gymnastics Championships Liverpool 2022 announces official supplier in Milano Pro Sport

UK based gymnastics and sportswear manufacturer Milano Pro Sport has been announced as an official supplier to the World Gymnastics Championships Liverpool 2022.

Milano will feature prominently at the Championships as part of a fanzone open to the whole city of Liverpool, with their newest and most cutting-edge gymnastics collections available.

Milano pride themselves on sustainability, aligning with the Championships’ own values, and the sportswear brand has recently started producing a fitness range in their new “Vita” fabric – produced using discarded fishing nets recovered from the bottom of European seas and recycled into textile grade yarn. Each purchase sees Milano directly supporting the “Healthy Seas” charity, which works to tackle plastic pollution in our oceans.

Milano began as a family business in 1991 but has since grown to be a major player in the gymnastics industry, becoming the official sponsor to the British Gymnastics team. The brand produces all their leotards in the North-West of England.

Discussing the partnership Gemma Williams Fox, Championships Director of the World Gymnastics Championships Liverpool 2022, said:

“I am delighted to confirm Milano as an official supplier for the World Gymnastics Championships in Liverpool. Based locally, but a world-recognised brand for providing gymnastics attire, we look forward to working closely with them to deliver an innovative event as we welcome the best gymnastics talent to a city defined by creativity, culture, and ambition.”

Working closely with Milano, the World Gymnastics Championships Liverpool 2022 will be delivering a truly unforgettable event, ensuring a world-class fan experience and athlete environment with the strongest safeguarding and athlete welfare measures.

On announcing their partnership, David Kaitiff, CEO at Milano said:

“It’s an absolute honour to have been selected to partner with World Gymnastics Championships Liverpool 2022. Being at the forefront of our industry, bringing upgraded fabrics, upgraded diamantés and cutting-edge designs and collections to the industry is so exciting. We also look forward to interacting with our clients and wider audience at the event, and promoting our initiatives centred around our environmental and sustainability responsibilities. We look forward to meeting everyone from the gymnastics community around the world who’ll be visiting the event.”
