Manchester Metropolitan University Partnership Announcement

Kukri Sports are delighted to announce our multi-year partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University. As part of the deal Kukri will provide sportswear for Manchester Met students and staff.

The collaboration will cover over 40 different sports, including football, basketball, netball and hockey, that are brought together at Manchester Metropolitan’s Institute of Sport.

The Institute of Sport unites research excellence from across the University to champion every aspect of sport and health, from strengthening communities and building a healthier society, to inspiring the next generation of athletes and pushing the limits of human performance. Find out more

The Institute supports Manchester Met’s Sport Scholars and sports teams, while helping students prepare for a sporting future through a range of undergraduate sporting degrees and opportunities for further study in its Graduate School of Sport – the first of its kind in the UK.

“Kukri Sports are very proud to enter partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University. By capturing student feedback as part of our initial process, we are able to produce a range of designs which students have helped create in order to showcase their association with the university and the city. As alumni myself, I am thrilled that business can support the university with kit provisions and also the wider engagement with students and their university experience.”
Josh Beal, Sales Director, Kukri Sports.

“We are extremely proud and excited to begin a new partnership with Kukri. The high-quality product was clearly a significant part of our decision, but we are also excited to explore other areas of the relationship in order to support the MMU Sport vision and enhance the student experience here at Manchester Met.”
Neil Hurren, Strategic Lead for Sport at Manchester Metropolitan University.
