SPORTident continues to support the International Orienteering Federation in 2024

"A great year of working together lies behind us and we are already looking forward to an exciting new year 2024 in which we continue our long-standing collaboration," said Burkhard Ritter the CEO of SPORTident GmbH.

The cooperation with the International Orienteering Federation means a lot to us. As the umbrella organisation for all orienteering sports worldwide, which includes the disciplines of foot, bike and ski orienteering as well as Trail-O, the IOF works to extend the reach of the sport and enthuse the next generation of orienteers through its programmes and initiatives, such as World Orienteering Week.

At the same time, the IOF is working closely with event organisers to raise the bar for orienteering competitions and offer athletes and spectators a consistently high-quality experience at the world's top competitions, and increasingly to a wider audience. We support the IOF in its efforts as a sponsor. In addition, we regularly support selected events and competitions directly as a sponsor with SPORTident equipment and our timing services, most recently at the Ski WSOC 2024 and the Ski Orienteering World Cup 2024.

SPORTident GmbH was founded more than 25 years ago and introduced a new way of time-keeping and identification in orienteering with groundbreaking technological innovations. SPORTident technology is renowned for its ease of use, durability and reliability. SPORTident again pioneered the sport with the introduction of contactless punching in 2015 and is the only system to date that enables classical punching and contactless punching simultaneously. The SPORTident system is used by more than 140,000 athletes and over 20,000 organisers in more than 70 countries around the world at local, national and international orienteering events.
