The Games are set to attract more than 1,500 future stars from 73 cities in 33 countries next month.
The company will also give out commemorative branded Games T-shirts to officials, volunteers and participants.
Team Coventry will be kitted out in Hummel UK gear tailored to each of the seven sports, along with team tracksuits, sports bags and caps.
Team Coventry will enter its biggest ever Games team, with 85 athletes representing the city.
Coventry City Council deputy leader and chair of the International Children’s Games Stakeholder Board, Coun Abdul Salam Khan said: “What a fantastic partnership we have created for the International Children’s Games.
“The team are going to feel one million dollars in their kit and I look forward to seeing our athletes representing Team Coventry across each of the seven sports.”
