2017 Masters Games launches new merchandise range

Wednesday, 28 June 2017

Organisers of the 2017 Lismore Workers Masters Games have unveiled the largest merchandise range in the event’s 20-year history.

The Lismore Workers Masters Games is taking place from 22-24 September with more than 1500 competitors expected to attend from across Australia.

Local business Sportspower Super Warehouse has combined with international manufacturing heavyweight BLK to produce the new range, which includes a polo shirt, limited edition T-shirt, bucket hat, cap and jacket.

The range is made using the latest technology in sports fabrics from the same people who produce apparel for Super Rugby clubs Western Force and Melbourne Rebels, and the New Zealand Rugby League team.

The merchandise collection will be available for order online and at various Masters Games venues throughout the three-day competition.

“This colourful collection is the best reminder of the Games our athletes can take home,” Lismore City Council’s Tourism and Events Manager Mitch Lowe said.

“Having a memento to remember the fun and friendships is really important to most Games competitors. Each individual can take home something physical to remember the Masters Games, along with a host of new memories. And we so excited by this new range thanks to our wonderful partners.”

Sportspower local owner Nicole Reeve said she was thrilled to partner with such a prestigious event, and one that had been steadily growing for more than two decades.

“The Masters Games has become a significant event for the local region and we think this new range reflects its ever-growing stature,” she said.

“We see ourselves as being a partner with Council, and have committed to not only produce the merchandise range, but also to use our network of stores in the region to promote the Games.”

BLK and Sportspower have worked together for over four years with the combined aim of promoting grassroots sport. BLK has a long association with the Lismore region, and this year launched a special fund to assist local sporting clubs affected by the 2017 flood. Approximately $100,000 worth of assistance has been injected into the local sporting community.

Early bird registrations for the Lismore Workers Masters Games close on 30 June.
