BRITISH SKI AND SNOWBOARD
Just two weeks before the start of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Delancey signed up as headline sponsor for British Ski and Snowboard, providing funding for 2014 & 2018 Olympic success.
Previously sponsor of just the British Alpine Ski Team, support now encompasses all teams, including Alpine, Snowboard, Freestyle and Cross Country. In addition to providing vital support that has helped these top athletes develop, Delancey has agreed to support the next generation of potential Olympic athletes, by supporting British Ski and Snowboard for another two years, up until the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics.
The headline sponsorship is in addition to Delancey’s title sponsorship of the Delancey British National Alpine Championships. Supported by Delancey for its 6th year, the Championships this year took place in Tignes, with Senior and Junior racing from 20th March to 27th March, followed by the Under 16 and Under 14 Championships from 28th March to 1st April.
The Championships are the biggest event on the British Alpine Ski calendar, and provides the opportunity for young British athletes to race and train on the same pistes recently chosen by FIS to host the Finals of the Alpine Ski World Cup in 2015.
Jamie Ritblat, Delancey’s Founder & CEO said: “Delancey is delighted to be able to help not only young people, who have demonstrated their potential, but also those whose international pedigree is already evident, backing them in training and competition at world-class level. I am thrilled to be able to provide the support they so readily deserve from a young age, and to ensure Team GB continues to be a leading force in winter sports.”
