English Archery Federation moves forward with Archery England
At the EAF AGM held Saturday 24th November 2018, it was unanimously agreed and voted that the EAF market and promote the Federation under the term ‘Archery England’.
Chairman Marc Grady said, “I’m proud to announce that as we progress our bid for the inclusion of Archery into the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, the EAF is better served when dealing with government, local authority agencies and potential sponsors, in stating at the outset who we are and what we do. Archery England clearly does this.”
He went on to state, “No one should be concerned that we are losing the prestige and heritage that the EAF has built over the past four decades. The EAF still exists; we remain the federation of the English Regions, proudly wearing our familiar garter badge, it is simply that future communications and marketing will be under the banner of Archery England.”
English archers can look forward to being selected to shoot for Archery England, new clothing designs, a new web page and a range of promotional and marketing paraphernalia in the months to come.
