019 Steel Challenge
World Speed Shooting Championship
May 15th - 19th
CMP Marksmanship Park
The 2018 Steel Challenge World Speed Shooting Championship was the largest on record, with over 650 registered guns competing in the world’s fastest shooting event. We are pleased to announce that we are again partnering with SIG Sauer for the 2019 event. Part of 2018's success was the host range, The CMP Marksmanship Park in Talladega, Alabama; this is a world-class facility and is perfect for this May’s event.
Steel Challenge has experienced tremendous growth since 2017, and doubled down in 2018. There have been over 16,000 new classifications, over 90 newly affiliated clubs, and several more sanctioned events. The competition will be out in force; we hope that you will again support this World Championship, and partner with USPSA to promote your sponsorship through our social media outlets and print publications.
We have special sponsor categories for 2019 that include Steel Master, Rifle Master, Revolver Master, RimFire Master, and Divisions Sponsor Packages.
We will be using this online sponsor request form only this year to break down different levels that companies are eligible to participate in these National Championships.
We are tracking and using this form only, so this must be completed to be listed as a match sponsor.
All sponsor confirmations and collateral material must be received no later than April 25, 2019.
All donations, prizes, and merchandise must be received no later than May 1st, 2019.
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 April 25th, 2019.
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 outlets 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 220,000 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 23,000 USPSA members. “Shooting USA” will be at the match, providing televised coverage of the Nationals. We will be doing live social media coverage during each of the events as well.
For 2019 we have a great offer for Division and Stage Sponsors to advertise their sponsorship in the USPSA Magazine Front Sight. You can purchase for a flat fee of $200 a 1/2 column ad to appear in the issue featuring this event. This will be a clickable ad that appears online and mailed to members.
We will be adding, and updating a sponsor page on the USPSA Facebook page that will include your supplied advertisement, logo, link to your website, and social media page before, during, and after the match.
