HANGZHOU - A small-sized garment enterprise in east China's Zhejiang province has got a big order to manufacture 120,000 football jerseys for the upcoming 2012 London Olympic Games.

With 120 employees working for its two plants, Zhejiang Yunlong Co Ltd, located in the city of Jiaxing, supplied football jerseys for the South Africa 2010 World Cup.

"We processed the clothing for World Cup using the fabric materials from Taiwan two years ago. Now, we use our self-developed fabrics with high quality and low cost to produce garments for the Olympics," said Ren Long, general manager of the company.

The cost for each jersey is $10, 15 percent lower than the previous price, according to Ren.

The 120,000 jerseys will be transported to England for football fans from 17 countries by the end of this month, Ren said.
