British Fencing Secures Million+ Sponsorship Deal!

Jo Hutchison at World Fencing

British Fencing has secured a £1m sponsorship deal with which to fund full-time training for team members, a national academy and events in Britain.

The cash, from insurers Beazley, represents a 32% increase in funding for the sport, which saw UK Sport decrease its backing two years ago.

British Fencing now hopes to double the number of fencers it can support.

Team Canada also got significant funding for their elite programs to bring in some top international coaches and help fund their athletes.

Time for USA Fencing to make this happen!
