Baku, July 28, AZERTAC
United World Wrestling (UWW) has announced a new partnership with Nike Wrestling, in a bid to boost its campaign to provide financial relief in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to insidethegames.biz.
The "We Will Wrestle Again" initiative will look to raise money through the sale of t-shirts, supplied by the sporting brand, with the funds going directly to National Federations, competition host cities and grassroots activities impacted by the virus.
"We are pleased to join with Nike Wrestling for this important mission," said UWW President Nenad Lalović.
"We are facing unprecedented times and the strength of our future will depend on our ability to come together in support of our community members around the world – from athletes to national federations. We must remember that we will wrestle again,” he said.
A scholarship fund will also benefit from the money generated from the campaign.
It will be managed by the development department, which looks to provide financial aid to athletes aiming to compete at international level.
Nike Wrestling President Eddie Brown added: "Nike Wrestling understands the obstacles that the wrestling community faces in response to the global pandemic.
“We Will Wrestle Again” came from the notion that we want to support those most affected and create a positive campaign that will help during these trying times."
