World Bowling CEO, Kevin Dornberger says “We are excited to work with Reddentes Sport and utilize their wealth of media and commercial expertise to raise the profile of our sport globally. Located in Asia and having relationships with the international sports industry, they are a perfect fit to grow the footprint for our sport in core and emerging markets.
“We look forward to redefining our media rights structure and commercial portfolio to increase exposure for our athletes and blue-ribbon events.
