The 2010 Football World Cup will massively increase demand for Compression shorts according to UK retailer Compress Yourself.
Almost all of the 32 competing teams are expected to wear Compression clothing to help prevent injury and aid recovery in what promises to be a long and hard fought tournament.
"The popularity of Compression clothing has grown enormously over the last 4 years", says Chris Perry, joint owner of Compress Yourself, "As the leading retailer in this sector with customers and orders worldwide, we are already seeing big increases in football related sales as the World Cup gets closer".
He also claims that word of mouth recommendations about the benefits of Compression clothing and greater media exposure is helping to drive the market
"At the last World Cup, the benefits of Compression shorts hadn't really been acknowledged. They were mainly worn by early adopters who were keen to sharpen up their performance and prevent injury. Now Compression clothing is being recommended as an essential purchase to give sports stars the edge", he adds, "Naturally people see more and more winning competitors wearing Compression clothing and want to emulate them".

About Compress Yourself

Compress Yourself (Evolution Sports Ltd) is the UK's largest specialist compression wear retailer.

Evolution Sports originally established an online sports equipment retail outlet in 2005 which was created from ideas and experiences from all the company members.

Every member of staff within the company takes part in various sports including rugby, football, cricket, skiing, tennis, hockey, running, cycling to name just a few and are passionate to improve on the sales and service experiences they had had.

Keeping our eye on the ball with sportswear technology, we became one of the first retailers of Skins™ compression gear in the UK and quickly realised that compression clothing was the way forward. Compression clothing has played a major part in athletes becoming champions and medallists and we recognised that potential very quickly with Skins™.

Compress Yourself decided only to supply the best compression clothing from like-minded companies who offer first class products - with continuous development - coupled with first class customer service so that we could not only become the biggest, but also the best.

To achieve this mission we teamed up with the experienced Timms & Perry Group in 2008 and this, together with our own knowledge and passion for sports, has allowed us to grow and offer this evolving sports technology to a wider field. We now have a privileged and extensive product range which includes: McDavid, 2XU, Skins and Under Armour.
