It’s been a funny old Summer- England’s European Championship campaign ended in embarrassment and we’ve seen more rain than sun, but at least Murray won Wimbledon eh! But the negatives haven’t got to us, we have battled through the downpour and have seen a successful Summer so far, supplying merchandise across a range of events.
First, we made a pit stop at Formula E in London. The fast paced environment was riveting to be part of, and it was a joy to see petrol-head fans buying our range of apparel and accessories for the event.
Event then flew over to sell merchandise at the Farnborough Airshow. The airshow is split into two events, the first 5 days of the event are regarded as ‘trade show.’ This year saw a remarkable deal secured by former Prime Minister David Cameron with Boeing, forming a new defence partnership . Following the news of a new defence deal the weekend came and the trade show evolved into the public show, where the public could attend the airshow and watch the impressive aeroplanes in full flight flying in formations, performing tricks and displaying stunning scenes in the sunny skies. Event provided a range of merchandise which is still available to purchase online on our web shop
You may have seen this event on the news recently as it was the return of the America’s Cup. Thankfully the weather wasn’t as torturous as last time, the sun shone high in the Portsmouth sky and we can honestly say we have never seen crowds like it! Everything was smooth sailing for Event and it was amazing to be have been at the America’s Cup.
Summer has only just begun in our eyes, we still have a full calendar of events we are part of including Tough Mudder, The Big Feastival and we are proud to be the official merchandise for the YouTube sensation Dan TDM tour which is nearly sold out in all venues. Plus we are supplying merchandise at the Olympic Park Fanzone for the duration of the Rio Olympic Games , come on Great Britain! Come down and show your support!

1 month on from the event hosted in Orlando, America, the Invictus Games are still on everyones lips. This is no surprise to us- the games have received growing support after it’s successful first year. An array of celebrities from diverse backgrounds are queueing up to show their
support including James Bond star Daniel Craig, former football manager Sir Alex Ferguson and Olympic Gold Medalist Victoria Pendleton.
The opening and closing ceremonies were spectacles to behold, matching up to the sheer greatness of the London 2012 ceremonies. Check out the video, it’s incredible!

Sebastien Buemi bolted his way round the track on Sunday to win the Berlin ePrix. The win now means Buemi has closed the gap on Lucas Di Grassi’s championship run to just 1 point heading into the Formula E season finale.
It has been an exciting and eventful season, which has witnessed the sport take off into race car heaven, dominating headlines and seeing audience numbers grow immensely across each race. Event! have loved working with Formula-E and curating the sports merchandise. We are just as excited for the season finale in July!

BBC Radio 2 were discussing the importance of the Invictus Games Foundation, which we are the proud suppliers of games merchandise.
Radio presenter Chris Evans was joined in the studio by athlete and Invictus star David Wiseman, who was speaking about the upcoming Invictus Games in Orlando on the 8th May. David won two gold and two silver medals during the 2014 Games and he was telling listeners how the event was something for everyone.
The Games are now into their second year, and without doubt the event is truly a rousing, inspirational and triumphant event. The aim is to reach out to ex-servicemen and women and engage them to participate in the Games, watched by thousands of spectators.
David was also joined by a familiar face who greeted Chris Evans with ‘morning ginge.’ Listen to what the two guests had to say about the fantastic sporting event.

What a fantastic month of sport it has been and Event have been at the heart of it all.
Event have yet again been at the forefront of sports merchandising and have been involved in some fantastic sporting moments this year. Where to begin…
Lets reverse back to the first weekend in February where Event were zooming round Buenos Aires in Argentina, South America, for Formula-E. Then the next day we flew all the way back to London, got a quick train to the trendy Camden town to sell some merch for the 2016 Super bowl. It was kinda a good excuse to watch and cheer on too…
Then we had two amazing weekends with the British Athletics in Glasgow and Sheffield, selling a range of products for the fans.
Now we are in March, (already?!) and we have already witnessed success at UCI 2016 World Track Championship. We would like to congratulate Laura Trott who produced a thrilling win in the women’s surge race at the roaring velodrome. We still have a weekend of breathtaking cycling to come with the likes of Sir Bradley Wiggins still to feature- we have named our teddy bear after the Olympic and Tour De France champ. Take a look here.
Plus Mr Murray is back in action for Great Britain in the Davis Cup hosted in Birmingham. There are thousands of British fans are cheering on the team wearing our #BacktheBrits t-shirts. C’MON ANDY! He’s in winning form- who’s the daddy 😉
Tonight we are off to watch some Mexican wrestling, LUCHA BRITANNIA!
One member of the Royal Family was pulling of heroics at the Invictus Games in Bath in a snazzy jacket.
Last weekend was the team trials for the Invictus Games in Bath. With a wintery chill in the air, what better way to keep yourself warm than with one of our Invictus Games jackets. That is exactly what Prince Harry did!
The Royal Prince was spotted wearing our jacket, supporting the try outs. Harry even became the hero of the day when he was first at hand to help a competitor in a wheelchair who had fallen over.
If you want to dress like a prince then you can purchase the Invictus Games jacket here.
Event! were proud to provide the official merchandise for the Davis Cup at Queen’s Club. We created a beautiful shop showcasing a large product range for the home crowd to wear and show their support for TeamGB, in keeping with intimate surroundings of Queen’s Club. We believe it certainly helped as the crowd showed excellent support to help Andy Murray produce an emphatic battling performance over the 3 days to ensure qualification for TeamGB.
Team GB – comprised of world No. 3 Andy Murray, his brother Jamie, James Ward and Dominic Ingleton – saw off a talented French team bristling with big names: Tsonga, Gasquet, Simon and Mahut. With a stellar display from the Murray Bros to win the doubles match on the Saturday, the final day Andy Murray v Gilles Simon was a must-win, as world No. 12 Tsonga would have too much for Jamie Ward. However, having been utilised for each of the three days, Murray was clearly tiring after exerting so much effort, losing the first set to the world No. 11. The crowd coming to our stand were fearing the worst – however the performance the followed was nothing short of sensational. Digging deep into reserve energy and displaying huge character, Murray won the incredibly tight second set. Momentum now with him and backed by a raucous crowed – he delivered the victory.
It was a fantastic event to be a part of – the atmosphere was fantastic throughout the 3 days and it was great to be at Queen’s for a historic win for TeamGB Tennis. The home crowd – donned in our It’s clear we are a bit too reliant on one man – however he delivered in emphatic fashion to guide GB one step closer to the Davis Cup final – a feat that hasn’t been achieved in 34 years!
