The tie-up includes the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics, and the Beijing 2022 Winter Games, as well as associated competitions and activities.

The chairman of the company, which opened its first store in Sweden in August, said: “We strongly believe this is a natural and complementary partnership”.

“We are inspired by the people and culture of Sweden; its appreciation of beauty and simplicity in design and approach to life reflects our Japanese origins and our LifeWear philosophy. Sweden is admired all over the world as a great global citizen, so it is an honor for us to be associated with the Swedish Olympic Committee as its partner on the world stage."

The Swedish national teams will receive a selection of custom Uniqlo items created specifically for them to be worn at ceremonies, training and competition, press engagements and leisure time.

Peter Reinebo, chief executive officer of the, Swedish Olympic Committee, commented, "As we sought a new partner for the 2020 Tokyo and 2022 Beijing Olympics, we emphasized three main criteria; quality, innovation and sustainability, all key elements of the Uniqlo brand. We have great confidence in Uniqlo LifeWear and we believe our athletes will be sincere advocates and proud representatives of Uniqlo globally."

And Johan Strid, secretary general for the Swedish Parasport Federation and the Swedish Paralympic Committee, added: “We are looking forward to wearing Uniqlo on the Paralympic stage. The design fits well for athletes with an impairment who compete at the Paralympic games, which is of course extra important for Team Sweden's performance."
