The Skateboard GB National Championships 2021 will take place on 11th April in Manchester, alongside a virtual event in summer.

Spin Master has announced that its popular fingerboard brand, Tech Deck, will be one of the official sponsors for Skateboard GB’s National Championships 2021.

Confirmed to take place on 11th April in Manchester, the one-day competition will be the only British Olympic qualification event leading up to the Olympic Games in Tokyo this summer. With restrictions limiting the number of skateboarders able to take part this year, Skateboard GB also has plans to host a Virtual National Championships during the summer, giving more skateboarders across the UK an opportunity to compete on a national level.

Phil Hooper, senior commercial director at Spin Master UK, said: “We’re very excited to have Tech Deck sponsor Skateboard GB’s National Championships. Tech Deck has a great range of expertly designed and authentic products that provide a fun and unique outlet for skateboarding fans, pros and amateurs alike.”

Tech Deck’s extensive range of mini fingerboards is designed to feel just like the real thing. Each fingerboard features authentic and iconic graphics from the biggest skate companies in the world, including Blind, Santa Cruz, Plan B and Sk8mafia. In addition to the collectible mini boards, the Tech Deck range also includes higher price point products, including the Build-A-Park World Tour ramp set which features everything needed for skateboarding fans to build their very own custom park inspired by real world skate spots.

James Hope-Gill, CEO at Skateboard GB, said: ”We are thrilled to be able to host the National Championships this month after last year’s was cancelled due to Covid. This is a very exciting opportunity to provide the UK’s top skateboarders with the chance to gain essential qualification points ahead of the Tokyo Olympics this summer. We’re lucky to have a great range of new sponsors this year, including Spin Master’s fingerboard brand Tech Deck which truly embodies the artistry and skill of the sport whilst resonating with the younger generation and aspiring skateboarders.”

Phil Hooper added: “It’s brilliant to see skateboarding become part of the 2021 Olympics and for the sport to receive the proper recognition it deserves. This increased awareness for the sport will certainly provide the Tech Deck brand with lots of exciting opportunities and potential partnerships in the future.”
