The inaugural Aussie Aths Fans Supporters’ Tour to the World Championships in Beijing in 2015 was a sensational experience for those who love their track and field with over 60 fans, including families of Australian team members and general lovers of athletics making the trip. The group came together to enjoy a wonderful 10 days of athletics, sightseeing and cultural activities in the Chinese capital. Enjoying world class athletics action with an ‘all sessions’ ticket in a group seating block that would have otherwise been unavailable to Australian fans, the tour created memories of a lifetime.
Building upon this, Athletics Australia has partnered with Jump Media & Marketing and Mummu Sport to present a tours program that will ensure a large supporters’ contingent in the stands to cheer on our Aussie athletes when they take on the world’s best, starting with the IAAF World Championships in London in August, 2017.
Jump Media and Marketing is a sports marketing agency, led by dual athletics Olympian David Culbert, with an extensive background and involvement in the sport of athletics. Mummu Sport are leaders in sports related travel and logistics, including as an official partner of the A.S.O. – right holders to some of the biggest cycling races in Europe, including the Tour de France, Vuelta a Espana and Paris Roubaix.
There are two great package options on offer for the IAAF World Championships in London from 4 – 13 August, 2017:
· a land only package; and
· a land and flights package.
Plus organisers are able to cater for individual travel requirements for those looking for an extended trip outside of the 10 day tour. The selected hotel is in a great location with plenty to see and do (and eat and drink) in the immediate vicinity, plus the nearby station is on the central line for easy travel to the stadium each day. We have accessed some excellent accommodation rates, better than what you can access via direct bookings. Plus of course, we have also secured the all-important championship tickets for the tour group, without having to take our chances in the public ballot.
