GREENHILL CONTINUES SUPPORT AS IMMAF OFFICIAL EQUIPMENT SUPPLIER FOR THE 2016 IMMAF EUROPEAN OPEN CHAMPIONSHIPS
The International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF) is proud to announce Greenhill as its official equipment supplier for the 2016 IMMAF European Open Championships.
The 5 day amateur MMA tournament takes place from the 22 to 26 November at the Arena of Sparta in Prague, Czech Republic.
Greenhill was the official equipment supplier for the inaugural 2015 IMMAF European Open Championships in the United Kingdom and for the 2016 IMMAF World Championships at UFC International Fight Week in Las Vegas (USA).
For the 2016 World Championships, Greenhill partnered with IMMAF to introduce red and blue corner, rash guard tops for male and female competitors in a break from MMA convention. The rash guards contributed to defining an ‘Olympic’ brand feel for IMMAF Amateur MMA, along with the protective shin guards and Amateur MMA gloves worn by IMMAF’s athletes.
Founded in 1964 as a family business driven by a love and respect for martial arts, Greenhill was established to deliver the best quality sportswear and sporting gear for sports people around the world. Staying forever true to its core values of quality, beauty and excellence, Greenhill has since become one of the world’s leading sports brands. The brand has gained recognition through being an official supplier to the Olympic Games in London, Beijing and Athens, master suppliers to the International Judo Federation and through product approval by the International Boxing Association (AIBA), the World Karate Federation and the World Taekwondo Federation.
