IKA introduces Team Rankings

The International Kiteboarding Association has introduced Team Rankings for each individual discipline as well as for the Overall Ranking for the 2009 season.

This shall encourage sponsors from outside the industry to support teams - on a local, national and international base. Of course the kiteboarding industry itself is also more than welcome to nominate their teams.

With immediate effect, riders can register their teams by sending an email to the IKA office, including the name of the team and the teamleader. For additional team members, the teamleaders must give their approval.

The rankings will be based on the results of the best three men and the best woman in each discipline and the overall.

Sponsors from outside the kiteboarding industry thus get the possibility to better promote themselves and their riders, while all current sponsors are still listed as the riders personal supporters.

Team names are expected to be named after their sponsors - e.g. "Team XYZ" for the main team, but also "Team XYZ Europe" or "Team XYZ Germany" are possible - depending on the sponsors possibilities and goals.
