In the beginning of 2015 we got in contact with the sport archery. In collaboration with the Dutch Archery Federation (NHB), the city ‘s-Hertogenbosch and the Province of Noord-Brabant we decided to enter at bid for the World Championships in 2019. It was a successful bidding and in the end of 2015 it led to the awarding of the World Championships to ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
The World Archery Championships will take place in June 2019 and will be organized as integrated championships; meaning that the regular as well as the para championships will be held during the same event. By integrating the two World Championships more attention will be generated for the para athletes on one hand, on the other it will create more opportunities to combine the event with different side events. It is expected that ’s-Hertogenbosch may welcome over a thousand athletes from almost 120 countries, topped by some 600 team officials.
Team TOC is responsible for organizing this Archery World Championships from the bidding till making agreements with hotels and organizing side-events. We will organize this event at our own expense and risk. In collaboration with NHB we will make this event a success.
