2020 boost for GB Taekwondo as Mooto Agree New Sponsorship Deal
GB Taekwondo’s global reputation for quality and excellence has been enhanced with the extension of a coveted sponsorship package.
Mooto, a world-leading Korean based martial arts company, has supplied equipment, uniforms and apparel, since July 2017.
Now, Mooto, a recognised supplier for international federation, World Taekwondo, have agreed to extend the partnership beyond this summer’s Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games and through to March 2021.
GB Taekwondo has qualified six places at the Games for Team GB and Paralympics GB where they will look to add to the five medals, including double gold for Jade Jones, won at the 2012 London and 2016 Rio Games.
Rob Saipe, managing director of Bytomic, Mooto’s UK distributor, recently visited GB Taekwondo’s headquarters in Manchester to confirm the deal.
Chief Executive Officer Matt Archibald said: “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Mooto as our official Taekwondo equipment and teamwear supplier.
“Our ambition is to partner with best in class providers in all relevant categories and our extended relationship with Mooto reinforces this.
“Their martial arts products are world recognised and their eye for design ensures our team always looks stylish on the podium.
“Last year we proudly wore Mooto uniforms to 17 international competitions winning 52 medals. We look forward to continuing our work with the Mooto teams in Seoul and Bytomic Distribution Ltd, the official Mooto Distributor in the UK.”
Mooto pride themselves on a culture of innovation and design whilst respecting traditional martial arts values.
Bytomic have been distributing premium brands in martial arts in the UK for more than 30 years. Their range of products and excellence in customer service is renowned both in the UK and internationally.
Rob Saipe described the partnership: “one of international significance in martial arts both in scope and ambition.”
He continued: “We are very excited to represent Mooto in the UK. Their quality of uniforms and equipment are recognised by athletes all over the world in tournaments including the Olympics.
“It is fantastic to extend our partnership with GB Taekwondo, whose ambition and drive for success has seen them set standards not just in the UK but internationally.”
