2020 PDGA Women’s Global Event Sponsorship Opportunities
Promote Your Business with Disc Golf's Most Popular Women's Event
Join the PDGA and the PDGA Women’s Committee in promoting disc golf’s most popular women’s event, the PDGA Women’s Global Event (WGE) on May 9, 2020.
The WGE is a biennial women’s disc golf tournament consisting of smaller events run simultaneously on the same day around the world. The event is open to all comers to discover and enjoy disc golf. It is our mission to offer a friendly, competitive event while encouraging more women and girls to be physically active through disc golf.
Since its inaugural year in 2012, the WGE has consistently raised the bar as the largest PDGA-sanctioned event for a single demographic. We look forward to setting even more records in 2020.
Promote Your Company on the PDGA’s Multi-Media Platform
Are you interested in contributing to the player’s packages or to providing giveaways and prizes for WGE participants? We anticipate that up to 3,000 players around the world will participate.
In exchange for your support, we offer advertising:
- On the sport’s most-visited website, PDGA.com.
- In the PDGA’s key printed, promotional, electronic and video resources associated with the WGE.
- On PDGA Women’s Global Event pages and the PDGA’s social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter).

Player’s Pack Partnership (new for 2020)
The PDGA is seeking partners to bid on items for the WGE 2020 Player’s Pack to produce a package that will retail for $20 - $25.
To participate, you must:
- Guarantee that you will provide up to 3,000 items customized with the WGE 2020 logo by the deadline.
- Provide a bid to the WGE staff, including a photo and description of the item(s) and the price that you will charge.
The WGE staff will select a variety of items for the player’s pack that are unique, tailored to women and cost-effective.
Partners selected to provide player’s pack items will receive future communications regarding lead times and logistics.
For Partners Outside North America
The WGE is also accepting bids for entire player’s packages for regions outside North America. These bids can be from a single company or a partnership of companies working together to create an attractive player’s package.
Official PDGA Store Partnership
The PDGA is seeking partners to provide special WGE 2020 logo merchandise for sale through the Official PDGA Store online. Please provide a bid to the WGE staff including a photo and description of the item(s) and the price that you will charge.
The WGE staff will select a variety of items for the Official PDGA Store that are unique, tailored to women and a good value.
All items will be pre-ordered. Orders will be provided to the partners on several pre-set dates and the custom logo merchandise must be delivered to PDGA fulfillment by a to-be-determined date.
The sponsorship options are designed for companies to promote their products and build popularity within the 2020 PDGA Women’s Global Event and the ever-growing disc golf community.
Sponsors outside North America may also bid on prizes for your region of the world.
Donate prizes (minimum $75 retail value) for the top finishers in each full division. The event offers 23 divisions for women and girls and will award between one and 10 prizes per division, depending on size. Sponsors will cover shipping for the prizes to the individual winners with addresses provided by the WGE staff after the event.
Donate item(s) for every Women’s Global Event (expect 130 - 150 events around the world) that registers before March 22, 2019. Prizes can be of any value, but should contain the WGE 2020 logo. Sponsor will ship all donations to PDGA Fulfillment Center to arrive by April 2, 2019. The PDGA Fulfillment Center will then ship to each individual event. Distribution of these donations to the players will be up to the Tournament Director (for example, CTP or skill contest).
Donate a product(s) for a sweepstakes-style giveaway. WGE staff will build excitement using these prizes as incentives for women and girls to register early for the events.
