The British Olympic Association (BOA), as the National Olympic Committee for Great Britain and Northern Ireland, is responsible for Team GB’s participation at the Olympic Games, including the procurement of kit for the Team GB Olympic squad (currently through their commercial deal with Adidas). The BOA is a privately funded organisation that is independent of Government, though we would encourage such organisations to procure sustainably produced sport's kit where possible.
