University of Hull unites with Team GB

The British Olympic Association has signed the University of Hull as a new domestic partner for Team GB.

The six-year deal announced today (Monday) will incorporate both the Tokyo 2020 and Paris 2024 summer Olympic Games and the Beijing 2022 winter Games.

At the heart of the partnership will be the ability to benefit from shared information, joint research and enterprise projects delivered by the University in support of Team GB.

The partnership will also cover opportunities for the University of Hull’s students, staff and communities, including participating in Team GB events, developing courses, guest speakers and CV-boosting opportunities such as work experience and volunteering.

The University of Hull joins adidas, Aldi, Deloitte, DFS and Ocean Outdoor as domestic partners of Team GB.

British Olympic Association chief executive, Bill Sweeney, said: “Our six-year commitment with the University of Hull underlines our vision to plan long-term beyond Tokyo and on to Paris 2024.

“At the heart of Team GB’s mantra is giving athletes a platform to succeed, exploring all avenues in the pursuit of success. We will be conducting joint research and developing specific courses looking into the positive impact of a strong team ethos and how this can help achieve success in highly-competitive environments. We look forward to working together to grow this vision further.”
