Super League Triathlon (SLT) will return to Jersey for the next five years. The Channel Island hopes to establish itself as a leading host for international sports events, as well as promote itself as a significant travel destination for sports fans.
Chief Executive Officer of Super League Triathlon, Michael Dhulst said: “This partnership will drive global awareness and bring audiences from all over the globe to Jersey. We are delighted to be working with the States of Jersey, Visit Jersey and Locate Jersey for the next five years so we can continue to bring our world-class, action-packed event to Jersey for everyone to enjoy.”
In September 2017, Jersey hosted Super League Triathlon’s inaugural event. More than 10,000 enthusiastic spectators watched the event in stunning St Helier’s, accompanied by television coverage reaching an audience of over 375 million viewers.
Plans for the Super League Triathlon will extend to the creation of a unique Jersey Sports and Entertainment Festival; a combination of sports and entertainment events will provide locals and visitors to Jersey with unmatched entertainment options that will incorporate youth elements to engage the entire community. Super League Triathlon is working closely with the British Triathlon Federation and the International Triathlon Union to give top junior athletes from federations across Europe access to SLT’s exhilarating racing style in the days to come.
A Qualifier Series for Super League Triathlon will be held from April to August at three locations to give ten male and female professional athletes from around the world an open and unbiased chance gain entry into the Super League Championship Series. The Qualifier Series will also host various mass participation races for different age groups and current confirmed locations are Poznan in Poland and Penticton in Canada.
