The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) has announced a new partnership with Samsonite, a global travel luggage company, which becomes a partner of the Hangzhou-bound Indian contingent for the 2022 Asian Games.
The members of the Indian contingent will, therefore, travel to the Games with premium suitcases supplied by Samsonite.
PT Usha, President of the IOA, commented:
“The provision of a premium suitcase, designed for the official kit for the Asian Games 2022, to each member of the Indian team is a symbol of the support and belief that the entire nation, and brands of global repute like Samsonite, bestow upon our champions.“
Achanta Sharath Kamal, Indian professional table tennis player, stated:
“I cannot stress enough the importance of the whole team travelling with such premium suitcases with our playing kits and ceremonial dresses in them. The feeling of pride and confidence among our athletes can only grow with such action.“
Jai Krishnan, CEO of Samsonite India, added:
“Samsonite has always been about journeys. And there’s none more heart-stirring than that the one our athletes are embarking on. We are honoured to be a small but significant part of their journey.“
