The German Shooting Sport and Archery Federation is pleased to host the first Match World Cup in 2023, taking place from 1st to 4th June 2023 at the shooting range “Bayerischer Sportschützenbund e.V.” in Munich-Hochbrück.

As we missed 30m competitions last year, this time we start with two 30m and one 10m match. The plan is to have four 30m and four 10m start possibilities during the season and therefore a good basis for a World Cup ranking.

New season, new beginning

Dear fellow crossbow shooters, officials, friends,

As we step into the new year, I want to reflect on the previous season and share my thoughts for the upcoming months. Despite the challenges that we faced, our community showed remarkable dedication and enthusiasm, and we came together to create unforgettable moments.

Last season, we had to adapt to new circumstances and make some last-minute changes to our events and competitions. But with your support, we rose to the challenge and demonstrated the spirit of sportsmanship that defines us. From the intense matches to the sense of camaraderie, the previous season was a testament to the strength of our community.

Looking forward, we are committed to returning to normal and providing opportunities for us to come together once again. We are actively exploring new ways to make this happen, and we will share our plans with you in the near future.

We have launched a new webpage with the aim to provide all of you the information on the actual activities of the IAU and to follow the life of the crossbow community. As the webpage is still under construction and continuously growing, we would appreciate any feedback or advice how to make things better and usable for any visitor. Write to the office (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or to me (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Finally, I want to express my gratitude for each and every one of you. Your dedication and passion make our community unique, and I'm honored to be a part of it. Let's make this season more successful than the last and create unforgettable memories together.

All the best,

Jaroslav Liptak, IAU Vice-President Europe
