From the 5-14 April 2018, the best Boxers in the Commonwealth will fight for Gold using STING equipment in front of a packed crowd at Oxenford Studios. GOLDOC Chairman, Peter Beattie AC said, STING is a great Australian brand that punches above its weight on the global stage. “STING will supply the Games with elite products ensuring every boxer at the Games is using a product of unrivalled quality made by an Australian company.” “Boxing fans will have the opportunity to purchase tickets to witness greatness rarely seen when ticket sales open to the general public from 5 July,” Mr Beattie said. STING continues its presence on the world stage after a successful Rio 2016 campaign which followed its sponsorship of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. STING Director, Amir Anis said his team were very proud to be involved in a Commonwealth Games on home soil. “STING is a proud Australian brand where our equipment is used by the world over. We’re thrilled to be able to be involved with GC2018 and cannot wait to see all athletes have the chance to fulfil their dreams.” “As the sole Australian owned company licenced by the International Boxing Association, it’s only natural for STING to supply the equipment to GC2018.” “From Glasgow to Rio and now the Gold Coast our brand continues to grow across the world and our partnership with GC2018 is proof of that,” Mr Anis said. GC2018 hopeful and STING athlete Skye Nicolson said the Games is her key focus. “My training has been aligned with International competitions this year for the GC2018 qualifiers, and to know that STING will be the equipment to use if I qualify gives me a lot of confidence.” “I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to compete at a home games in my own backyard. I’m from Queensland so it will be a dream come true to compete in front all of my family and friends,” Nicolson said. STING will supply the competition boxing ring, gloves and other training equipment for the boxing athletes. ENDS For more information, please email media@goldoc.com or contact:
