This page is intended to provide instructions around the use of GBR logos and patches for all GB Major Events (these are all the major championships)

Last updated: 25th November 2023 – this page is currently being updated

It is your responsibility to ensure your kit has the correct logos/patches and your equipment meets FIE standards.

Please note that the Olympic and European Games is not covered by this advice. The requirements around kit, logos, tracksuits etc will all fall under the jurisdiction of the TeamGB who in turn are bound by the IOC rules.

A summary of the requirements/expectations in relation to the GBR patch 

As part of the terms of the Leon Paul sponsorship arrangement, all athletes competing are required to wear a Leon Paul logo. This should appear on the back arm. For foilists and epeeists the logo patch should be sewn onto the back arm ideally above the GBR logo.

In sabre the logo may be attached at the top of the thigh of the non-sword side of the fencing breeches and clearly separated from the national logo. Or it may be placed on the back of the lame – sabreurs can have their lames printed directly by Leon Paul. This can be done at any event where Leon Paul have a printing service or at the Leon Paul shop. Alternatively, you can contact [email protected] and they will send you patches to sew onto your lame jacket (you will need to specify the type of lame – eg lightweight).

In foil and epee – Please note that NO logos of any description, other than the GBR national logo, should be on the breeches.
