AthletesCAN, FireWork announce two-year partnership aimed at growing athlete promotional funding marketplace
TORONTO / OTTAWA – AthletesCAN, the association of Canada’s national team athletes, is proud to announce a two-year partnership with athlete marketing influencer firm FireWork until 2023.
Founded by current CFL wide receiver Nate Behar of the Ottawa REDBLACKS, FireWork will collaborate directly with AthletesCAN members to generate new social media and sponsorship revenue opportunities as they train and compete for glory on the world stage.
The partnership was initially revealed Sunday, as part of the AthletesCAN Forum, the largest and most inclusive gathering of Canada’s national team athlete representatives outside of competition. The event brings together Canada’s high-performance athletes and sport leaders to learn about the sport system, develop leadership skills, share ideas and network through interactive workshops, seminars and presentations.
AthletesCAN, the association of Canada’s national team athletes, is the only fully independent and most inclusive athlete organization in the country and the first organization of its kind in the world. As the voice of Canadian national team athletes, AthletesCAN ensures an athlete-centered sport system by developing athlete leaders who influence sport policy and, as role models, inspire a strong sport culture.
