Adam Dailey's Ludus Tours Becomes Offical Tour Partner of USATF
By USATF Communications
June 23, 2007

INDIANAPOLIS - Ludus Tours and USA Track & Field (USATF) have entered into an exclusive partnership that will make Ludus the Official Tour Operator for USATF.

n the agreement, Ludus will serve USATF and its network of athletes, members, fans and partners at a variety of track and field events including the 2008 Olympics, 2009 World Championships, and USA National Championships.

Ludus was created in late 2003 by Adam and Jessica Dailey, both former athletes who competed in the 2000 U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials. Since its inception, Ludus' primary objective was focused on assisting American track and field athletes and their support groups for the 2004 Athens Olympic Games. Since then, Ludus has branched out and worked on events in the USA, Germany, Spain, Italy and France, including the 2006 World Cup and 2006 Winter Olympics.

Adam Dailey, Managing Director, said that the partnership with USATF is a logical step toward the future as well as a way to reconnect with their roots and passions. "This relationship really brings us back into the world of track and field. Our agreement allows us to invest in a long term commitment to USA Track & Field in addition to having a positive influence on the sport and its fans."

The agreement between Ludus and USATF appoints Ludus to develop hospitality programs for Beijing as well as the 2009 IAAF World Championships in Berlin, Germany. Ludus will provide specific tour packages customized for track and field fans, including USA National Team members' family and friends, and will also offer exclusive discounts to USATF members.

"Ludus Tours offers us a unique partnership that will significantly enhance our international and domestic hospitality programs," said USATF CEO Craig Masback. "This is a great opportunity to offer our members, athletes and partners an additional resource that they can use in Beijing, Berlin, and in the United States."

In addition to covering the world's biggest sporting events, Ludus also specializes in various global cultural events. Ludus reserved more hotel rooms during the Turin 2006 Olympics than any other North American company. Currently, they are preparing for the Rugby 2007 World Cup in France this fall.
