Successes of British Athletics at the IAAF World Championship

All the wins from the British Athletics Official Merchandise Shop

In this year’s IAAF World Championships, athletes such as Dina Asher Smith, Adam Gemili, and Eilidh Doyle recouped 6 medals for Great Britain. We won the Gold in the Men’s 4x100m relay and Men’s 10,000m. We took the Silver in the Men’s 5000m, Women’s 4x400m relay, and the Women’s 4x100m relay. Lastly, we claimed the Bronze in the Men’s 4×400 relay. Customers who visited the British Athletics Official Merchandise Shop were prized with an in-house Mo. He got quite a lot of action!

Setting up the British Athletics Official Merchandise Shop, us at Event were in a race against the clock to open up shop. We made quick moves and drilled all our resources, finishing with a winning store that hosted some Great British Athletes and excited fans.

The shop greeted some passionate fans. Most were on their way to the stadium, to shout and cheer (and possibly bump into Usain Bolt). Some were retiring to their sofa, securing a clear view of all the action. Either way, these customers made sure to #REPRESENT the British Athletics team, at the IAAF Word Championship, in London 2017.

What a Month of Sporting Event Merchandising

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…

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA - FEBRUARY 06: Sam Bird of DS Virgin Racing Formula E Team celebrates at the podium after winning the Buenos Aires ePrix as part of 2015-2016 FIA Formula E Championship at Puerto Madero Street Race Track on February 06, 2016 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

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!
