Your uniform

Manchester 2002 will uniform approximately 12,000 people including the technical officials, paid staff and volunteers. Uniforms for a major international sporting event not only serve to identify the workforce, but are a powerful communicator of the image of the Games. They will play an integral part in the overall presentation of the Manchester XVII Commonwealth Games enhancing the venue dressing; street banners; tickets; publications and media broadcasts.

The Uniforms

The casual uniform, which will be worn by 95 per cent of volunteers, comes in three distinctive colours for easy identification:

Red – medical personnel

Jade – technical officials

Purple – all general staff in Crew 2002

The colours will be teamed with black sports trousers, casual jacket and distinctive northern flat cap. In addition to the uniform, Crew 2002 will also receive a Commonwealth Games branded bag, water bottle and umbrella.

Each jacket carries a label signed by HRH The Earl of Wessex, President of the Commonwealth Games Federation, with the message “Thank you – we couldn’t have done this without you!”

Uniforms will distributed from mid June 2002 at the Accreditation and Uniform Centre in east Manchester.
