Boxing BC to host the 2019 Super Channel Championships at the Bear Mountain Resort Community
After a much-anticipated return to Western Canada in 2018, Boxing Canada is proud to announce that the biggest Olympic boxing competition in Canada, the 2019 Super Channel Championships, will be hosted by Boxing BC. Following the success of the unification of the Elite, Youth and Junior categories in 2016, this national sporting event will be held from April 23rd– 27that the Westin Bear Mountain Resort Community (1999 Country Club Way, Victoria, BC V9B 6R3)in the City of Langford. One year prior to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the 2019 edition promises to be as exciting as ever, featuring the best boxers from coast to coast who will face each other in the hopes to remain or become Canadian champion in their respective weight division.
“The 2019 Super Channel Championships being held at Bear Mountain Resort Community in Langford are the result of the City’s sports tourism strategy that the City embarked on some 15 years ago when it set out to rebrand itself as the sport tourism destination within British Columbia,” states Mayor Stew Young. Indeed, with an extensive background in hosting high-profile international sporting events, it is the perfect environment for optimal athlete performances. The 21,000 square foot competition site is ideal for a national boxing event; the custom-designed infrastructure is a one-stop resort with all services accessible on-site, from grocery store, personalized menus catered for athletes, a 5-star fitness center and much more.
“Boxing BC is very excited to be hosting the 2019 Super Channel Championships in April of next year. The Canadian Championships last came to British Columbia in 2009 in Richmond and in 2005 in Prince George. We are now hosting this prestigious event on beautiful Vancouver Island where we are proud to be partnering with the City of Langford and Bear Mountain Resort Community,” says Ryan O’Shea, President of Boxing BC. “Boxing BC is excited to go above and beyond to host the best championships held to date.”
“Boxing Canada is extremely grateful for our partners’ active involvement to execute the vision we have for the growth of boxing in the country,” says Pat Fiacco, Boxing Canada’s President. “We are thrilled to partner with Boxing BC, the City of Langford and the Bear Mountain Resort to host another successful edition of the Super Channel Championships. These partnerships are extremely beneficial for the development and growth of our sport and are aligned with our philosophy to create the biggest boxing festival in Canada.”
Boxing Canada’s partnership with Super Channel being the first Title Sponsor associated with its national competition not only increases the quality of the presentation, it also optimizes the scale and the visibility of the competition through promotion and broadcast opportunities while elevating the credibility and popularity of Olympic boxing. Thanks to this sponsorship agreement, Super Channel actively supports the growth of boxing throughout the country.
“Super Channel is very excited to be returning as the title and presenting sponsor for Boxing Canada’s 2019 Canadian championships. Our involvement in the 2018 Super Channel Championships held in Edmonton was in our view a tremendous success,” states Don McDonald, President & CEO of Super Channel. “We continue to be committed to Boxing Canada with our sponsorship at the grassroots level of Canadian boxing as we increase our direct participation in the Super Channel Championships and other initiatives with boxing in Canada.”
