Jambo Athletic – Top Quality European Made Field Equipment: Part 1

Members of the French National Team with their Jambo Athletic Equipment. The Fédération Française de Football Américain is one of Jambo Athletic’s premier clients.


When I first began working for The Growth of a Game supplying European retailers, teams and players with American football equipment, it immediately became obvious to me how necessary it is for field equipment to be manufactured in Europe.

Not only is field equipment painfully expensive to purchase in the US, but shipping from the US oftentimes costs as much as the equipment itself. When you add on the cost of import taxes, which almost always exceed 25% of the combined cost of the product and shipping, it’s no wonder why so many teams were struggling to afford field equipment.

It should be no surprise then how excited we were at The Growth of a Game when we discovered Jambo Athletic. Since the company manufactures field equipment in Europe, shipping costs are exceptionally low and countries within the European Union don’t pay any import taxes.

Jambo Athletic is a family-owned company with roots in Bydgoszcz, Poland. The company was founded by three brothers after their American football team had difficulty accessing reasonably-priced field equipment. Seeing that there were no European field equipment suppliers on the market, they came up with a strategy for designing the equipment themselves.

Jambo Athletic offers completely customizable field equipment available in any color, and any combination of colors. Here is some of the gear recently purchased by Finland’s Kuopio Steelers.

They began identifying the fundamental tools that they could supply to teams in and around Poland and got to work. The family had a long history in textile manufacturing, so the transition to American football equipment was a smooth process. In a matter of months, Jambo Athleitc was producing all the essentials: sleds, step over bags, hand shields, pop up dummies, tackle dummies, tackle donuts, field goal pads, equipment bags, and landing mats, among other items. Jambo Athletic field equipment was quickly in high demand from teams all across the European continent.

After quickly forming a very effective professional relationship, Jambo Athletic and The Growth of a Game solidified their partnership. The Growth of a Game now handles all sales while Jambo Athletic handles product development, manufacturing and shipping. It’s a match made in heaven.

Both organizations believe in developing American football in Europe, and we both play our part by providing European teams with access to affordably priced field equipment. Both organizations take great pride in their work. This is evident in the positive feedback we consistently receive from our clients. Teams from all across Europe have ordered Jambo and have been pleased with the quality of the product and the personalized service.
