The International Bowling Federation — the global governing body for the sports of tenpin, ninepin and para bowling — and QubicaAMF have entered into a long-term agreement granting QubicaAMF official partner status and global bowling equipment exclusivity until 2030.

The IBF and QubicaAMF first entered into a memorandum of understanding to form a new partnership in March 2020. This new strategic commitment to the IBF ensures extensive QubicaAMF presence in IBF events.

IBF and QubicaAMF also will work together on a series of initiatives to grow bowling, increase its popularity and worldwide reach, and make it more successful, sustainable and inclusive as an international sport.

QubicaAMF will be the IBF’s global bowling equipment supplier and partner for all IBF “Elite” events and multi-sport games, including the 2022 World Games in Birmingham, Alabama, and the 2023 Pan American Games in Santiago.

The IBF said that the dependency of bowling centers being in the vicinity of future multi-sport hosts is removed with QubicaAMF able to adapt to elite temporary infrastructure demands.

The partnership will increase the ability to adapt to differing stakeholder priorities, particularly with sustainability and climate change being of the utmost importance. With that in mind, the IBF will use EDGE String technology for elite events, multi-sport events and where bowling is featured in temporary locations.

“Without the support of long-term partners such as QubicaAMF, it would simply not be possible for IBF to continue our work to develop bowling worldwide,” said IBF Chief Executive Officer Andrew Oram.

“We are honored and humbled at the opportunity of being the exclusive global bowling equipment partner for IBF,” said Emanuele Govoni, CEO of QubicaAMF. “Over the past 18 months we have worked closely with IBF and it has been incredible to see their vision to grow and promote the sport begin to come to life. We are excited to see what the next decade brings and to be able to provide our new technologies to IBF, to support their strategic initiatives and to continue to take bowling to the next level globally.”
