The National Field Archery Association (NFAA) has teamed up with sport technology pioneers, Sport:80, to launch a new online entry system for the world’s largest indoor archery tournament; the Vegas Shoot.
The NFAA chose to use Sport:80’s innovative system having seen it successfully used by other major archery events such as the European Archery Festival and World Archery Youth Championships. As a result the technology is now being used to process the entries of an expected 3000-strong field of archers who will descend on Sin city for the Vegas Shoot in February next year.
The technology has delivered a modern means of engaging with entrants and the NFAA believes it is already seeing the benefits of a new approach. Brittany Salonen, Marketing and Event Director at the NFAA explains:
“Sport:80’s solution has simplified and sped up the entry process for the competition and as a result we believe we have already seen a record number of entries compared to this time last year. It’s also allowing us to collect a wide range of information on all the entrants including bow style, division and even the types of equipment they are using. All of this intelligence is going to be really valuable in delivering a greater experience for everyone attending.”
The Vegas Shoot will draw in archers of all abilities from around the globe, lining novices up against Olympians, all of whom will be competing for the biggest pay out on the global archery calendar. The three day competition will be held the South Point Hotel and Casino for the sixth year running and competing archers will be well looked after. The resort boasts more than 11 restaurants, a bowling alley, cinema, casino, salon, spa and vast convention centre which will be the setting for the competition.
Entry for the Vegas Shoot is open now with early bird rates available. For more information visit www.nfaausa.com/tournament/the-vegas-shoot
