The BC Games Society is pleased to announce that Passion Sports Custom has been chosen as the official merchandise supplier for the 2016 and 2018 BC Winter and BC Summer Games.

Passion Sports was born from an idea to inspire youth. College basketball teammates created the Passion Sports Brand and Basketball Academy with the mission to inspire young athletes and teach them the importance of hard work.  They found themselves purchasing large amounts of custom t-shirts and frustrated with the service and pricing of local suppliers so they ventured out on their own.  

This Victoria based company was established in 2009 and has grown to be a competitive supplier in the marketplace.  The company understands the essence of the BC Games as Passion Sports VP Technology, Chris Abra, was a former athlete and coach at the BC Summer Games.

“We are ecstatic to be working with the BC Games Society on such a positive project,” said, Greg Wallis, Director of Passion Sports.  “Creating the merchandise line that young athletes will use to remember their BC Games experience for years to come is a big responsibility that we don’t take lightly.”

Passion Sports will work with the BC Games Society and each local Host Society to develop a merchandise product line for participants, volunteers, and fans to purchase.  An online store will be established pre-Games and during the Games there will sales locations where merchandise will be prepared using transfer express technology.

“We are excited to have Passion Sports become part of our team,” said Kelly Mann, President and CEO of the BC Games Society.  “We know that they will bring their leading edge technology and expertise in design to create a memorable merchandise line for the BC Games.”

The online merchandise store for Penticton 2016 BC Winter Games will launch in the fall of 2015.
