A thank you to WOD sponsors – and welcome SPORTident!


The success of the World Orienteering Day project in 2016 has also been a success for our sponsors. Sponsoring World Orienteering Day is about a mission, to raise the awareness of our wonderful sport globally.

We are very happy to announce the involvement of SPORTident as an Event Sponsor for World Orienteering Day both in 2017 and 2018. SPORTident is not only one of the key suppliers of punching and timing equipment and services in orienteering, but also a company that does basic development work for orienteering world-wide. For example, SPORTident has worked very hard on the development in Southeast Asia. Partially due to the work done by them supporting our members we were able to welcome Indonesia and Malaysia as full members of the IOF this past year. And they are currently working together with our member federation in India on first-time event organizing. Managing Director Siegfried put it this way. – To support the IOF World Orienteering Day project for me is a matter of honour and distinction.

Emit and Silva have been our World Orienteering Day sponsors for 2016 and we are in the final stages of gaining their continuation as Event Sponsors for 2017 and 2018.

We are thankful to our sponsors for making World Orienteering day possible. Please remember them as you plan your projects.
