“We’re very pleased to be continuing our partnership with Team England, the overall leading nation from the 2014 Games,” said Luca Belogi, Arena’s general manager of sales.

“They demonstrated in Glasgow that they’re a powerhouse in the pool, and we expect they’ll once again be extremely competitive in 2018.

“The UK, and England in particular, is a strategic market for us, and this partnership is emblematic of our commitment to swimming there, not only at the highest level, but throughout all levels of the sport.

“We are optimistic that our continued investment will bear fruit for both Team England and Arena as we look forward to what promises to be an eventful two years.”

Replica versions of the gear England’s aquatics athletes will wear in Gold Coast will be available for fans to buy from March 2018.

Gold Coast 2018 will take place between April 4 and 15.
