For accountability, we are using these online sponsor forms only. An online form must be filled out if you wish to sponsor USPSA National Events.
Match Sponsors will be able to place their supplied ad in the online Matchbook. The advertising in the matchbook will feature click-through links to your website, and will be posted on the USPSA website, shared in our weekly Downrange email newsletter, and shared on our social media sites. We encourage you to provide us any special offers or discounts to be included with the information we will email the registered competitors prior to the start of the event.
We want to offer a special sponsor package to those companies dedicated to supporting us throughout the year. For companies supporting us we will be sharing content across our social media presence including Facebook, Instagram, and others throughout the year of 2023. These social media outlets currently have over 230,000 followers and prove to be a valuable asset to reach a qualified and engaged market. Sponsors will be listed in the USPSA Magazine that is available online and mailed to over 36,000 USPSA members and listed in the Down Range Newsletter with a current subscription base of 56,000. “Shooting USA” will be at the match, providing televised coverage of the Nationals. We will be doing live social media coverage during the event as well.
We will be adding your supplied ad, logo, link to your website, and social media page to the USPSA Facebook page, before, during, and after the match. Confirmed Sponsors for Nationals will also have their social media post shared throughout the year where appropriate.
Once registration dates have been confirmed (currently TBD) they will be communicated to you. If you are planning on having sponsored shooters use sponsored slots please have them sign up (codes will be provided) before open registration and the codes are invalidated. If you sign up for sponsorship after open registration begins we cannot guarantee you slots or squadding.
If you are planning on sending sponsored shooters please sign up prior to open registration so we can guarantee you slots.
We will not be able to offer return shipments of banners. USPSA will keep the banners provided for future use. Please do not provide a return label for banners. This also ensures we have banners on hand for future events should an issue with shipping banners to an event arise.
Banner shipment for National Sponsors is due two weeks after signing up, not when prizes are due. This is to ensure we have banners for set up and banners are not shipped with prizes and not found for set up. If you were a previous sponsor, we will have your banners and will discuss if they need to be replaced (if you have new banners you would like to use, or we need to replace worn out banners). If you are a new sponsor (or are providing new banners) please have the banner shipment ready when signing up (If you need to have banners made we will work with you on lead times for having new banners made and drop shipped to us.)
The due dates for prize shipments and ads for matchbook are one month before the match (exact dates are listed above, are in the individual match forms linked above, and will be emailed to you). We must have valid tracking info and your Matchbook ad by these dates. If we do not have a tracking number indicating shipment and your ad by the cut-off date/matchbook release date, (listed above) we will be forced to remove the sponsorship, remove your ad from the matchbook and will not be able to hang any banners provided at the match. This is to ensure materials agreed upon arrive in time for the event.
For signing up for the entire year you may provide us with an ad that is one size up from the level you are signing up for. Example: If you sign up for Stage for the entire year, you may provide us with a One Full Page ad instead of a Half Page ad, as a thank you for supporting USPSA for the entire year. We suggest in your ad announcing that you are sponsoring USPSA for the entire year of 2023 (which we will announce as well) and thank you for your dedicated support.
