CZ is the Match Sponsor of the 2025 IPSC Handgun World Shoot XX

The International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC), together with the South African Practical Shooting Association (SAPSA), is delighted to announce CZ as the official match sponsor for the 2025 IPSC Handgun World Shoot XX jubilee. The competition will take place at the Frontier Shooting Range in the city of Matlosana, South Africa. 

 

“CZ currently offers a wide range of the highest quality sport pistols, which are utilized by our best athletes to compete at the highest level. We are grateful to our long-term Global Partner for its active support of our sport and see that CZ is once again among the main sponsors of the largest match of the year – the World Shoot. Thanks to the support of our sponsors, we continue to provide athletes with the best conditions for competitions,” said IPSC President Vitaly Kryuchin.

 

“I am proud that our company will be the official match sponsor for the jubilee of the 2025 IPSC Handgun World Shoot XX. I am convinced this partnership is mutually beneficial and that together we can attract new IPSC members and contribute to further popularization of the sport. The competition will provide exceptional moments and I look forward to a unique competition of brands and shooters. May the best sportsman win,” said Jan Zajic, CEO of Ceska zbrojovka.

 

The parties signed a sponsorship agreement at the IWA OutdoorClassics 2024 show in Germany, confirming their commitment to a long-term partnership and cooperation on sponsorship opportunities that will assist in development of the sport around the world.

 

In 2022, CZ was also the match sponsor of the IPSC Handgun World Shoot XIX in Thailand. In addition to competitions, CZ, as an IPSC Global Partner in the ‘IPSC Handgun’ field, actively supports the best IPSC athletes in various divisions and members of its CZ Shooting Team always finish at the top of the IPSC’s largest international handgun matches.

 

The World Shoot is a global event and the highest Level V competition on the IPSC match calendar. The 2022 IPSC Handgun World Shoot XIX in Thailand had a total of 1345 competitors from 73 countries, who competed in 30 challenging stages of this IPSC Level V match, which was the largest of the year.

 

The IPSC Level IV African Handgun Championship will take place from 22 – 29 September, 2024, at the same range as the 2025 IPSC Handgun World Shoot. Athletes will therefore have a unique opportunity to familiarize themselves with the new range, weather conditions, and shooting environment that will be featured in the World Shoot next year.

Dear Regional Directors,

I would like to share some news from the recent Executive Council meeting:

1)    Update on the ESS scoring and registration system was provided to the meeting.

It was reported that the work is going according to the planned timeline.  It was also highlighted that new features and ongoing improvements are being implemented. The system is being well received by users in South America and is supporting a growing number of matches worldwide.

A centralized Dashboard has been completed where a member can see all their stats and info, such as: Personal Information, Matches Attended over lifetime, Attended Seminars, Current Registrations to matches they want to shoot and Open Registrations to events in their Region.

2)    Electronic Scoring Targets List was presented to the meeting and it will be published at the IPSC web page.

3)    The results of the investigation of the IPSC Disciplinary Committee on the Korean case were presented to the meeting. After the resignation of the current Regional Director, it was decided to recommend to the IPSC General Assembly to transfer an affiliation to the new organization.

IPSC Israel is officially recognized by the Ministry of Culture and Sports (Israel).

IPSC Israel has been officially recognized by the Ministry of Culture and Sports as a separate Directorate representing IPSC sports in Israel.

“We successfully received the written recognition from the Ministry of Culture and Sports, approving our new directorate as the sole representative of IPSC sport in Israel. I would like to thank IPSC President and IPSC Executive Council members for continuous support and guidance.

I take this opportunity to thank sincerely and warmly the Israeli Shooting Federation for their continued cooperation and for helping IPSC Israel to become what it is now.

We are still facing a long way to dealing with our regulators. In the coming days, we will have mutual work groups with the division of firearms licensing and we hope to conclude all necessary changes in the nearest future.

In our long journey to independence we had 100% of Israeli IPSC clubs support, but most of the hard work was done by a selected crew – Riki Hollander, Rony Korem, Yaniv Botvinik, Said Haddad and Nahum Zarzif. Without their dedication, professionalism and belief, we wouldn’t have made it. I thank you all!”
– Mr. Itzik Ellenbogen, Regional Director of IPSC Israel, said.
