BOA to make most of commercial opportunities of Team GB

The British Olympic Association is looking to sales of replica Team GB football shirts from the London 2012 Games to solve their financial issues. The deal could be worth millions of pounds to the BOA, who are expected to make a financial loss this year.

BOA communications director Darryl Seibel said: "We have the opportunity to bring two Team GB items to the market in 2012 with all the royalties going to the BOA.

"We have not made a decision as to what the two items will be.

"We have looked at a number of items and ruled a few out, but we have not made a final decision which they will be. We have a range of options."

The football shirts and replica kits will be manufactured by adidas, who are the official provider of the kit for the men and women Team GB teams and sports.

An announcement of the two squads of 18 players will be made in the summer of 2012.
