The Scottish Archery U21 Academy are looking for sponsors.
The Scottish Archery U21 Pathway Academy program represents the future of archery in Scotland. Fresh from a Youth Home Nations victory in 2022, we are set to build upon a successful season as the Academy provides young Scottish archers with the support that they need to shine. Archery is a truly diverse sport, and the only Olympic-level sport where disabled and able-bodied athletes compete directly. Help us to bring home some Olympic and Paralympic golds for Britain and build success for the next generation.
Archery has a wide appeal, with participants at all age ranges, roughly 50:50 male:female ratio and including both able-bodied and disabled athletes. With an equipment cost entry barrier, many archers tend to be mass affluent and above.
Key Dates and Timings
The initial period of the sponsorship will last through calendar year 2023, during which our team will take part in over 40 regional, national and international competitions. The sponsor will be invited to participate in the Scottish National Tour events and also the Scottish Junior Indoor and Scottish Junior Outdoor competitions.
Specific Opportunity Details
We are seeking a shirt sponsor for the U21 team's 2023 season to help fund our enhanced training program and their travel to National and International competitions in the UK, Ireland (World Championships 2023) and Romania.

We have long-established social media, email and web channels with our full membership and are in the process of upgrading our communications capabilities.
