Sponsor signs on for Gibraltar’s Island Games

Conglomerate Bland Group International has agreed a deal to sponsor next year’s edition of the Island Games multi-sport event in Gibraltar.

Bland Group International will become an official partner of the Games, which run from July 6-12.

The Island Games is a biennial event and was last held in Gotland, Sweden in 2017. Next year’s event will feature 2,500 athletes from 24 member islands competing across 14 different sports.

Chair of the local organising committee, Linda Alvarez, said: “With the Games now less than one year away, physical work on the sites and logistical planning have intensified. Similarly, the private sector are now engaging more and more with organisers and it is against that background, and following the recent successful visit of representatives from member territories, that we thank and welcome the very valuable contribution of Bland Group International, who we are delighted to partner with as one of our main sponsors for 2019.”

Bland Group International is part of the Bland Group, which comprises companies across the travel, tourism, security, aviation and technology sectors in the UK, Gibraltar, Spain, Morocco and the US.
