The International Bowling Federation and the Professional Bowlers Association have formed a long-term partnership. The goal: raise the profile of the sport and increase participation worldwide.

Among many aspects of the agreement, the PBA will adopt the IBF’s anti-doping regulations and anti-corruption policy for match fixing. Gender equality, sustainability and climate initiatives, and coaching best practices also will be at the forefront as the agreement is implemented.

“This partnership allows us to now support IBF across its elite sports portfolio and bring PBA events to flagship international locations outside of the USA,” said Colie Edison, CEO of the PBA. “This is an important partnership as we expand our athlete membership beyond USA events to provide a year-round calendar of PBA and IBF joint-sanctioned events.”
