Other information

This template is intended to be used for sport-related instances, where the United Kingdom is often known as Great Britain. Please use Template:Country data United Kingdom for non-sport references.

Both the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) use GBR as the three-letter country code for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. However, the two-letter country code UK is a very frequent abbreviation for the United Kingdom. Consequently, Template:Country data GBR is the alias redirect for this template (matching the sport-related usage), and Template:Country data UK is the alias redirect for the "United Kingdom" template.
