Getting Involved / Partnership Opportunities

In 2022, Edmonton, Canada is playing host to both the World Championships from August 28 to September 4, and the Canadian National Championships from June 16 to 19. Canadian Nationals is a large event in itself, attracting 400 players from across Canada. As hosts, Dodgeball Canada are preparing for the Summer of Dodgeball, featuring both events, along with multiple community enegagments throughout the province of Alberta.

As a sponsor of the Summer of Dodgeball, your organization will gain visibility with our audience and have potential opportunities for direct in-event interactions and activations, as well as exposure through event promotions and social media channels.

Our goal is to build mutually beneficial relationships with our partners. As such, all sponsors will receive consistent promotion of their organization through the website and social media channels of both Dodgeball Canada and the World Dodgeball Federation. Sponsors will be profiled in the official program of the World Championships and will be given interactive space in the facility during the industry exposition portion of the week. Other opportunities for all sponsors include items for inclusion in delegation welcome kits and a number of tickets to the World Championships Gold Medal games.
