New sponsor sought for 2014 World Thumb Wrestling championships
Following the incredible success of 2013’s World Championship – which saw American newcomer Tiger Monkey storm the mens’ tournament and the legendary Big Digit successfully defend the womens’ title for Britain – the organisers of the World Thumb Wrestling Championship are on the lookout for a new corporate sponsor for next year’s 2014 event.
Rory Van Bellis, CEO of the sport’s governing body, said: ‘The championships are getting bigger and better every year, and is turning into a great sponsorship opportunity. This kind of quirky event is a great chance for the right company to share in the community spirit of this snowballing athletic success story.’
This year’s dramatic international mens’ final has catapulted the sport to internet notoriety. The Huffington Post interview with the victorious Tiger Monkey is a viral hit, while Tiger Monkey’s YouTube channel is picking up scores of new subscribers.
After the Tiger Monkey’s surprise win, the world’s top thumb warriors are in serious training for next year’s event. With organisers expect 2014 to be the biggest year yet, isn’t it time the sport had the major sponsorship to match?
