The International Luge Federation (FIL) uniforms for the 2021-2022 Winter Olympic season have been chosen.

The selection was made following a recent visit to the TEXSPO company in Linz by an FIL delegation headed by executive director Christoph Schweiger.

Managing Director Peter Gerhofer and TEXSPO employees Stefan Brüglhuber and Marlene Aichinger were on hand to offer advice on functionality and design.

The agreement covers the outfitting of all FIL officials, with the clothing made by GTS, a TEXSPO brand.

"Many years of experience and the best know-how enable us to manufacture high-quality products in modern design at attractive prices," said Gerhofer.

The clothing selections were followed by a tour of the central warehouse.

GTS has been the official clothing supplier of the FIL since the 2018-2019 season.

The latest contract extension in 2020 saw GTS remain the official clothing supplier until 2026, with an option to extend until 2030.

GTS also equips the Great Britain and Latvia teams.
