GB Taekwondo has appointed Gateway Sports & Entertainment as their exclusive sponsorship agency, as they look to build their commercial partnerships offering ahead of an exciting year for the sport.
Based at the National Performance Centre in Manchester, the GB Taekwondo team has become dominant on the world taekwondo stage, winning near 100 global medals since 2016.
With a major year in the sports calendar on the horizon, culminating with the Paris 2024 Olympic Games – GB Taekwondo appointed sports marketing agency Gateway Sports to help develop and execute their commercial partnerships strategy.
Paul Buxton, CEO of GB Taekwondo said: “We’re delighted to be working with Gateway Sports & Entertainment as we drive up our commercial offering and build meaningful partnerships ahead of what will be a fantastic showcase year for our sport.
With the Paris Olympics less than a year away, we recognise the opportunity that lies ahead for our athletes to continue their amazing progress, and with Gateway Sports rich experience in creating partnerships where athletes sit at the heart of the collaboration – they are the perfect partner to develop and execute our partnership strategy.”
Deji Akande, CEO of Gateway Sports & Entertainment, also shared: “GB Taekwondo has had tremendous success in recent years with countless global titles – but we also believe the sport holds huge cultural value as one of the world’s most historic martial arts, and we can’t wait to get creative with the opportunities that are present within this special organisation. Their athletes are the stars of the show, and through their personal journeys, courage, and their willingness to keep fighting – I’m confident this organisation will create unique and innovative partnerships as we look towards the future.”
