Debenhams kit out GB hockey team

Debenhams is set to show its sporting capability as the official formalwear supplier for the Great British hockey team...

And it’s no mean feat. The high-street retailer will be dressing no less than 79 players, plus their coaching staff for the Olympic Gala Send Off Dinner, which will take place in London this summer.

‘We are thrilled to be kitting out such a successful team when sport is at the forefront of our customers’ minds,’ said Debenhams Trading Director, Suzanne Harlow.

Surprisingly, Debenhams will not be suiting and booting the players from their Designers at Debenham’s ranges, but rather from the store’s well-known high-street concessions such as Red Herring and Principles by Ben de Lisi, with Faith stepping in to provide exclusive footwear.

Team member, Helen Richardson (and might we add, the youngest woman ever to represent Great Britain at an Olympic level) said, ‘Hopefully people will see from the pictures that as well as being Olympic athletes, we’re normal people working hard to achieve an incredible goal.’

And on that note - good luck team GB!
