Tata Steel has a small number of corporate sponsorships as well as a proactive Community Partnership Programme.
Our sponsorships are commercial relationships between Tata Steel and our sponsorship partners. Our Community partnership programme supports charitable and non-profit organisations in the communities in which we operate.
In the UK we are the Community Partner of the British Triathlon Federation. We have been a sponsor of the British Triathlon Federation since 2006 and have actively supported the organisation in its journey to Olympic and World Championship success. In 2007 we launched the Tata Kids of Steel children’s triathlon series to encourage youngsters aged 8 to 13 to give “tri a try.” By working in partnership with the British Triathlon Federation, schools, and the local communities in which we operate, our Tata Kids of Steel series has introduced more than 75,000 youngsters to the sport.
In the Netherlands we organise one of the world’s leading and longest running chess competitions, the Tata Steel Chess Tournament. The tournament was launched in 1938 and takes place every year in Wijk aan Zee. As well as attracting the world's top chess players, the tournament provides opportunities for the most passionate chess amateurs to get involved in playing alongside the Grandmasters. The next tournament will take place from 13 to 29 January, 2017.
Tata Steel is not currently accepting new requests for corporate sponsorship. However any community and non-profit organisations wishing to find out more about how to apply for support can do so through our Community Partnership Programme.
