Brand to Renew Sponsorship of Tactical Games in 2023
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – November 18, 2022 – Blackhawk®, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, applauds the successful wrap-up of The Tactical Games National Championships, which took place November 4-6 at the Texas Shooting Academy in Florence, Texas. Blackhawk served as Presenting Sponsor for this year’s Tactical Games season and will return as a Platinum Sponsor for the 2023 Games.
“This was our first year sponsoring the Tactical Games, and we couldn’t be more pleased with how the season ended,” said Courtney Tiziani, marketing manager for Blackhawk. “The community of people that makeup the Tactical Games is truly what makes the sport great. Their drive for self-improvement is unquestionable and their support for their fellow competitors surpasses any other competition. This sense of pride and duty is exactly what our brand was founded on and why we are excited to help continue to grow the sport.”
Over the course of the season, Blackhawk supported every Tactical Games competition as well as provided gear to the top competitors at each event. Blackhawk representatives attended multiple events, as both sponsors and competitors, and showcased the brand’s line of premium holsters and tactical accessories.
Throughout the 2022 season, Blackhawk also sponsored tactical athlete Zach Rodman, a 15-year veteran of the Kokomo, Indiana, police force and SWAT Team. Rodman achieved multiple top finishes, including taking first place at the Utah Tactical Games and placing second in the team division at the Tactical Games Panthera. At this year’s National Championship, Rodman finished seventh in the Men’s Elite Division.
Two popular pieces of equipment among competitors this season were the Blackhawk T-Series holster and Foundation Series Tac Nylon gear. The T-Series holsters with leg straps were the perfect option for keeping proper retention and positioning as competitors navigated unconventional obstacles and engaged targets. Likewise, the Foundation Series Tac Nylon gear gave competitors some of the lightest and most modular plate carries, chest rings, utility pouches and belts on the market.
In 1990, a Navy SEAL was navigating a minefield when his pack failed. As his gear tumbled to the ground, he vowed that if he got out of there alive he would make gear the right way. Today, this obsession with quality applies to everything we do. We’re constantly researching, refining and perfecting every detail to provide gear that won’t let you down. Because we’re not just making stuff – we’re honoring a vow.
