Boomerang Team Sponsors
Team Sponsorship Sends boomerang carnetssm Out and Back Again
Eight-Year Sponsorship Relationship
Corporation for International Business has been a proud sponsor of the United States Boomerang Association (U.S.B.A.) and its world-class boomerang team since January, 2004. We discovered the professional team when we were launching our boomerang freight℠ solutions ATA Carnet brand in December, 2003.
Since then, boomerang freight℠ solutions has sponsored the U.S.B.A. and its team through 5 World Cup Championships: Brazil 2012, Italy in 2010 (U.S. Team brought home the World Championship), Seattle 2008, Japan 2006 and France in 2004. In addition, we've sponsored several National Championship and regional tournaments.
An Emerging Sport With International Fans
The emerging sport has enthusiasts all over the world, from countries as far away as Japan, Brazil and Australia, to name a few.
The return flight of a boomerang inspires awe and wonder and the sport attracts athletes from many walks of life and corners of the world. The new photos in our gallery below capture the spirit of the sport and our ongoing support. Boomerang Videos

Photo #1: 2012 National Champion, Richard Bower, receives the trophy from U.S.B.A. President, Matt Golenor, presenting on our behalf. In 2010, CIB increased its U.S.B.A. sponsorship to include the National Champion trophy.
Photo #2: Boomerang throwing athletes from all over the United States compete to win the title "National Champion" and to earn a place on the United States Boomerang Team and compete at the international level.
The sport's Long Distance event requires an extra large playing field; therefore, competition is sometimes held at a different location than the rest of Nationals. The North American Long Distance Open (NALDO) was held in Delaware, Ohio this year.

The modern sport of boomerangs as we know it today began in the 1960s. Today, there are 25 countries with national boomerang organizations and a World Cup is held every two years. There are Individual tournaments (with Novice, Intermediate and Advanced divisions), Team Tournaments and informal games.
The USA Boomerang Team, selected by the United States Boomerang Association (USBA), has represented the United States in eighteen World Boomerang Championships; starting Down Under in 1981 with the first Australia vs. USA Boomerang Championship, and most recently Brazil in 2012. A US Team has won 11 out of 18 Championships. For more information on the USBA go to www.usba.org.
