Please review this letter in its entirety as some parts of the agreement have changed from previous years.
USPSA is pleased to announce the 2023 Federal Multigun National Championship Presented by Vortex. The match will be held at the Forest Lake Sportsman Club in Forest Lake MN July 21st - 23rd with staff shoot July 19th-20th.
The 2023 Multigun Nationals Match Director will be Adam Maxwell. Adam will be bringing his many years of experience as Match Director for several 3 gun events to next year's championship. USPSA is excited to partner with Forest Lake and Adam for the event and help to support not only the championship but to grow 3 gun events. There will be several other announcements to come including registration dates and staff information, sponsorship opportunities as well as other pending updates to USPSA Multigun. We are looking forward to having a great Multigun National Championship in 2023.
New for 2023: We are introducing a new media package option for our Stage Sponsor Level. Be sure to check out the details below!
For accountability, we are using this online sponsor form only. This online form must be filled out if you wish to sponsor this event.
The ad for the matchbook, all donations, prizes, and merchandise are due to ship and active tracking info must be received by:
Due Date: June 19th
Cut-Off Date: June 23rd
(Please read below about cut-off date.)
June 23rd is also the last day to submit this form. Please have prizes ready to ship and your matchbook ad ready if you are signing up close to the due date.
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. This needs to be received no later than the due date above. 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.
To better utilize our social media channels and get more exposure for our match sponsors, we will be sharing your provided advertisement on our social media pages. These pages 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 Front Sight 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 or logo, and tagging your social media page to the USPSA Facebook page. Confirmed Sponsors for Nationals will also have their social media post shared throughout the year where appropriate.
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 for 2023. 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 2022 (which we will announce as well) and thank you for your dedicated support.
