A Brief History... 

Big Bird Sports was founded in 1997 to fill the niche in the sports industry for a truly independent supplier of quality give aways and retail souvenir merchandise.

Our Managing Director, Joan Robinson, and her then business partner fondly referred to each other as "Les Grandes Oiseaux" or "The Big Birds" of the industry and hence a company with a truly unique name was born. Since we hatched, we have grown to supply over 100 top teams in every imaginable sport - football, rugby (both league & union), cricket etc. We also supply a number of FTSE 100 companies and have associations with clients ranging from major international fashion houses, to charities and Central Government Departments.

Company Overview...

As a different type of supplier, we do not invest thousands of pounds a year on catalogues - that way we can save you money! This web site is our only foray into "global marketing". This allows us to offer what we believe is a unique service to our clients in the way we supply our products. We match products to your own quantity and budgetary requirements enabling you never to be disappointed by not being able to buy what you want within your budget. Within a couple of common sense parameters, we can also design and supply a truly unique product to meet your requirements

Our Promises to You...

  1. We will NEVER ask you to spend hours trawling through this website - let us know how many items you want and what you want to spend per item and WE WILL DO THE SEARCH FOR YOU.
  2. What you see is what you pay - we promise to make our formal quotations simple to understand and easy to read. After all, if you can’t understand the quote, you can’t make a buying decision!
  3. We will NEVER accept a job we cannot deliver on - we would sooner say sorry for not being able to help than sorry for not delivering.
  4. We will ALWAYS deliver to your required dates - as long as you are sensible in your expectations then we will ensure you get what you want, when you want it.
  5. No job is too big or too small - whether you need 10 silver hip flasks or 1,000,000 recycled paper bags (yes, we've even done that) we will be happy to quote to supply. If there is something you are particularly looking for and you can't find it elsewhere, please contact us and we'll do our best to help.
