We invite you to become a Marketing Partner of the most unique ladies billfishing tournament in the world.  The founders of the Pescadora Billfish Championship believe there is a better way to re-event the wheel; to actually help our Marketing Partners gain more company exposure.  We are accomplishing this by creating a very different event teaming up with Costa Rica’s Tourism Board and crowning the world’s top lady anglers!

This tournament will be held in Quepos, Costa Rica at the prestigious Marina Pez Vela, Feb 21st-23rd, 2019. Not only is this a truly ground breaking event, but is a great way to educate adventurous, decision-making women from all nationalities about your products.

Each sponsor will automatically receive the following benefits when choosing an item off of the marketing menu:

  • Marketing Angel – Every Marketing Partner of the Pescadora Billfish Championship will be given the title of a “Marketing Angel”.  Each boat registered for the tournament will be randomly paired with a Marketing Angel.  Your company logo and name will shadow this boat through-out the tournament.  This alone, gives you substantially more exposure than you would normally have.
  • Sancochero Labs – New custom made tournament leader board solution.
    • Live Score Board – Logo placement next to your “angel boat” on the live score board, tournament results posted on our website, social media pages and on the results page handed out after each day of fishing.
    • Billfish Release Video – Along with those following the tournament from home, most TV’s through-out the marina and a 14ft inflatable screen will display the live scoreboard.  Every time a boat releases a fish an update will post to the score board.  There is a new feature that will scroll release videos from the day before; these videos will have the boat name and your logo for all to see.
    • Hourly Updates – Your companies name mentioned on the 10:00, 12:00, 2:00 live status updates on the tournament radio and live score board.
  •  Marketing Angel Trophy – 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards given to the top 3 Marketing Angels.
