Your Sports Apparel Manufacturing Partner

Creating a successful brand isn’t just about having great products – it’s also about finding the right manufacturing partner who will be just as invested in your success as you are. A good apparel manufacturing partner will be more than just a supplier – they’ll be someone you can rely on for advice and support.

This is exactly the kind of mentality we strive to have at Sphere Sport. Our wide range of services, from design and development to production and promotion, are designed with the needs of brands in your industry in mind.

It’s why we won’t supply every brand that comes to us and why our clients stay for us. Contact us to see if we’re a good fit to partner with your brand. 

Premium Manufacturing Service

Our excellent customer service sets us apart from traditional overseas factories and we take a personal interest in the success of each of our clients. 

Experienced Production

Recruited from the best factories serving the leading brands, our staff are experts in their positions.

State of the Art Machinery

We've invested heavily in cutting-edge machinery to ensure our apparel is high-performing and durable.

Quality Control Measures

Each step of our order process has multiple QC checks to ensure your order arrives exactly as delivered.

Australian Business Culture & Ownership

Tired of miscommunications with your current supplier? The cultural and language gap between Chinese custom apparel manufacturers and Western businesses can be a source of constant frustration. 

Sphere Sport was founded to bridge that gap. Founders Sam Clay and Eric Fan’s mission has been to better serve custom uniform brands by combining the efficiency of Chinese apparel manufacturing with the customer service and value-adding focus of Australia’s service sector.

The results speak for themselves, with our apparel and services better reflecting the needs of our clients than our competitors.

An Apparel Manufacturer You can trust

Your apparel designs and styles are a reflection of your brand. They communicate who you are to the world, and they help to build customer loyalty. That’s why protecting your Intellectual Property (IP) is so important.

Unlike other factories willing to give away your trade secrets whenever it’s convenient, we understand the importance of copyright protection and vigorously protect your data.

Feel Good about
your Custom apparel manufacturer

You should feel confident that your overseas apparel manufacturer is as committed to ethical business practices as you are.

Each year we pay for a BSCI audit and consistently score much higher than our competitors. We’re committed to creating a great place to work for our employees and doing our part to reduce emissions and have a positive impact on the world. 

Grow Your Retail Offerings with Us

Looking to diversify your offerings with retail apparel and products? Our team has everything you need to build a retail catalog that you can upsell to your current clients. 

We’ve recently invested in larger cutting-edge digital sublimation printers able to produce 3000 apparel pieces a day, allowing us to charge less per item for retail orders.

We also offer China dropshipping and warehousing to make fulfillment both cheaper and more accessible.

Additional Services

As one of the few Chinese teamwear apparel manufacturers with an international team, Sphere Sport is uniquely positioned to help our clients achieve greater capabilities through our access to inexpensive offshore services and understanding of their needs and expectations.

Product & Equipment Sourcing

Sphere Sport's in-house sourcing team is able to help you manufacture in China any product according to your budget and specifications that we can't do in our factory.

Oversea Photoshoots & Videos

Always felt like a professional photoshoot and video were beyond your reach with your current budget? We'll outsource it to a local media company with foreign models to save you money and provide marketing content.

China
Dropshipping

Although slower than local dropshipping, China dropshipping allows you to save money on warehousing and shipping while reducing business complexity.

Large Catalogue of Stock Items

With over 170 stock garments & products, you can quickly add our styles to your catalog or make your own adjustments to them in order to stand out.

Each year we add 20-50 new styles to our stock catalog so you can continue to expand your offerings. All of our fabrics and products are listed on our website, so you can quickly browse our selection, as well as in our yearly PDF catalogue.

About Sphere Sports

Our mission is to simplify ordering factory-direct bespoke apparel with excellent customer service, elite quality, and services that add value to our clients.

Founded in 2018 by Sam Clay and Eric Fan, Sphere Sports began as a small 600m2 custom apparel manufacturer with only 5 full-time workers in Dongguan, China. Through dedication to our clients and their referrals, we’ve now grown to 45 employees and moved into a 2450m2 production facility with greatly expanded capacity and more capabilities.

Sphere Sport’s vision has always been to bridge the cultural gap that traditionally existed between Chinese apparel manufacturers and Western sports brands. To accomplish this, we’ve built a specialized international team focused on the simple goal of understanding and serving our client’s needs.
