More Information

Placement information can be found here –

The placement of the GBR logos on the jacket arm is designated as the convention by BF but not mandatory (ie you will not fail FIE weapon control at FIE competitions if you do not have them). However, members of the same teams are required by the FIE to have the same GBR logo application therefore the convention will be adopted as follows:

Foil fencers require 1 logos on each arm and each leg. (total 4)
Epee fencers require 1 logo on each leg and 1 logo on the back, non-sword arm. (total 3)
Sabre fencers require 1 logo on each leg. (total 2)


Commemorative Patches

BF provides Cadet (U17) and Junior (U20) athletes with ‘commemorative patches’ when they are selected for major events such as European and World Championships. We do not intend athletes to sew these onto the fencing kit they use at FIE events. Importantly there are FIE rules around what can appear where and these are subject to change. If they wish athletes can sew the patches onto kit used only at EFC circuit or domestic events where the FIE restrictions do not apply.
