About Samurai



The Samurai story is one of innovation, excellence and a quest for outstanding design. Our ethos today is the same as it always has been: Your Sport, Your Garment, Your Colour, Your Fabric, Your Choice.

The Company was born from a passion for great kits. When founder Terry Sands set about finding kit for his Samurai International Rugby Sevens teams’ debut at the Amsterdam Sevens back in 1996 nothing he found matched his expectations, so he designed the kit himself and the Samurai Sportswear brand was born.

The Samurai name has grown ever since taking custom made performance teamwear to the next level. Today we produce innovative and unique ideas to create a style completely individual to you and our kits are worn worldwide by clubs, associations, schools, colleges and universities, from grass roots to international level.

The variety of sports has also grown as we lead the way in kit design. From our own factory in China we manufacture high quality teamwear for almost every sport, including rugby shirts, cricket whites, netball dresses, basketball jerseys, football kits and hockey tops, amongst others. The Samurai logo on those garments guarantees the same standards as it always has done - inspirational kits in eye catching and unique designs, with immaculate finishing and styling details worthy of a premium brand.

We lead the way in product innovation. Having our own factory means that not only can we control the highest levels of product quality in the industry, it allows us to be at the cutting edge of production techniques using the most technically advanced moisture management fabrics available. With built in moisture dissipation, climate regulation and air channelling technologies our kits are built to perform, as well as look good.

Score Sportswear has had the New Zealand and Pacific Island license since 2007, and has helped grow the brand in one of the most successful and enthusiastic sporting countries in the world. Samurai in New Zealand now is the principal apparel and equipment supplier to many of the most high profile Schools, Clubs and Professional teams across a wide range of sporting codes.
