Benefits of Hosting

Winning the right to host the World Amateur Team Championships will deliver real benefits for the host country and cities on a sporting, financial, promotional and social level.

As well as creating economic impact through visitor spend and the media reach of the WATC makes it a valuable place branding and destination marketing tool.

The IGF is committed to ensuring that its National Member Federations reach the full extent of their growth potential in the coming years. This will give many of them the opportunity to be potential bidders for the WATC.

The WATC provides a great opportunity to develop the game and will help showcase the best amateur teams in both gender groups, providing a platform for the achievement of wider social goals and ensuring a legacy plan.

Some of the benefits for the event host could include:

Economic benefits
  • Economic impact and return on investment
  • Place branding on a global scale (advertising and sponsorship values)
  • Revenues opportunities (sale of tickets, hospitality, and sponsorship packages)
  • Auxiliary events potential (associated events with economic value)
Sporting benefits
  • Legacy of golf participation (involvement of fans and community)
  • Accelerated development of elite programmes
Social benefits
