New Upgrade Factory in 2021

When Sphere Sports launched in 2018, founders Eric and Sam recruited an all-star team of talented individuals from the best factories across the region offering competitive pay, great benefits, and a chance to be a part of a highly competent and productive team.

Our production team has been at the core of our success allowing us to guarantee professional-level apparel with quick turnaround times.

As of 2021, we’ve moved into a 2400m2 new facility to expand our production capacity and make room for new machinery. We are now offering high quality studio pictures of all completed apparel on mannequins for every client.

Australian Founder​

He attended boarding school at Assumption college from the age of 12 a school well recognized for sporting achievements and producing professional sports people. He was a captain of swim team and also played on AFL football teams. Soon after coming to China in 2006, Sam began a sourcing company with most of his major clients being in the sports and apparel industries.

Sphere Sport was launched in 2019 to allow brands and organizations the ease of working directly with a native English speaker and someone familiar with Western business practices without having to go through intermediaries. Sam currently lives in Dongguan and oversees the design and sales teams. 

Employee Care

Family Environment

There’s a reason Sphere Sports has had so little employee turnover. We work hard to create a family environment where employees are well taken care of and supported. Sphere Sports compensation and benefits is among the best in the industry and management works hard to apply feedback from staff at every level.

We also take pride in our commitment to a greener tomorrow. Sphere Sports offers a variety of eco-friendly packaging as well as the Repreve eco-material for garments made entirely from plastic bottles. We are working hard to become a zero waste facility by recycling excess material and being exact with the materials use. We also utilize Smart Power Management practices to reduce our power consumption.
