FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
World Archery powered by TFORS
The International Archery Federation (FITA) is pleased to announce a 1-year agreement with a new technology sponsor, TFORS.
Today, FITA President Prof Dr Ugur ERDENER made the official announcement of the TFORS sponsorship agreement during his visit to the federation’s headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland. This is the third major announcement made by the federation since the beginning of June, following a new licensing programme for textile and the launch of the World Archery brand.
TFORS, the brand name of Technology for Sports, is a new event services company in Turkey that provides integrated technology solutions for event organisers. It has extensive know-how in IT technologies, event management, graphic design and website development.
As the new IT services partner for all the major World Archery events, including the Archery World Cup, TFORS will provide all the accreditations and results services onsite and online. For instance, TFORS has developed a wireless scoring system that allows quick collection and publication of the archery scores on various devices. TFORS also produces TV graphics, as well as the web infrastructure and applications, needed for successful media coverage of an event.
FITA is very proud to welcome another partner who will play a key role in the successful operation of archery events. TFORS has, in fact, provided its services for the Archery World Cup since the beginning of 2009. The competition is as intense as ever and Stage 4, in the modern downtown metropolis of Shanghai (CHN), will be a decisive event in early August. The season culminates with the World Archery Championships in Ulsan (KOR) and the World Cup Final in Copenhagen (DEN) in September.
FITA President Prof Dr Ugur ERDENER said, “We are very pleased to welcome TFORS as a new archery sponsor. TFORS increases our operational efficiency and the attractiveness of our events by providing integrated IT solutions tailored to our needs. Their one-stop offering saves us significant time. With TFORS co-ordinating all our technological needs, it certainly frees us to focus on more important sporting issues.”
World Archery would like to wish a warm welcome to TFORS!
