Nightforce Optics plans to increase their support of the U.S. Rifle Team (three-time F-Class World Champions) with a multi-year deal. The U.S. Rifle Team competes in domestic and international F-Class matches. Funds for such endeavors are mostly sourced directly from the shooters’ pockets, so sponsor dollars from generous companies like Nightforce are important.

The U.S. Rifle Team (comprised of 60 members) is currently preparing for their fourth straight F-T/R World Championship cycle, which concludes with the next World Championship in South Africa in 2021. The Team fields three squads for F-T/R, F-Open, and Under 25 shooters.

“As a fantastic long-term partner, Nightforce continues to give back to the F-Class shooting community through their unprecedented support of our Team,” said Team Captain Phil Kelley.

Previously, the U.S. Rifle Team collaborated with Nightforce engineers to create the Competition 15-55x52mm riflescope, an optic that is popular for F-Class competitors worldwide.

“After twelve years of sponsoring the U.S. Rifle Team, Nightforce is proud to continue backing F-Class competitive shooting and the U.S. Rifle Team in their endeavor to bring home the gold again at the 2021 World Championships,” said Nightforce Optics Director of Sales and Marketing, Gordon Myers.

Nightforce glass has been used on the Team’s rifles since 2009.

Myers concluded, “As Gold Medal partners, we’re more dedicated than ever to see the Team achieve their goals and triumph in South Africa in 2021 … By sponsoring the Team plus many other F-Class matches all over the world, we're committed to enriching long range, competitive shooting as a whole.”
