 Ludus Tours and USBSF partnership now offering exclusive tour packages to fans, friends and families


SAN DIEGO, Calif. – February 11, 2013 – Today Ludus Tours, a hospitality and travel company that creates experiential packages to major global sporting and cultural events, signed a partnership with the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation (USBSF) to be its Official Tour and Hospitality Supplier. Under this extended partnership, USBSF members are now offered exclusive “Follow USBSF Tour Packages” and discounts to see the team compete at various competitions, including the 2014 Winter Games. 

"We first partnered with Ludus for the 2010 Games in Vancouver and we were very happy with the work they did,” said Darrin Steele, Chief Executive Officer of the USBSF.  “We anticipate an even more challenging hospitality landscape in Sochi, so we are again partnering with Ludus.  We have confidence that they will be able to provide great options at reasonable prices to our athletes’ families and supporters." 

“Follow USBSF Tour Packages” include handpicked accommodations, private airport transfers, exclusive access to hospitality perks and more. Bobsled and skeleton fans can now travel together to watch the sports’ star athletes compete at events such as the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games, which will take place just over a year from now in Sochi, Russia.

“Our partnership with USBSF goes back several years and we are excited to deepen the relationship to offer friends, families and fans of bobsled and skeleton the opportunity to travel together to root on their favorite athletes and teams,” said Adam Dailey, Managing Director of Ludus Tours. “With USA bobsled coming off a gold medal victory in Vancouver and the possible addition of popular Summer Games athletes transferring to the Winter Games, it’s an incredibly exciting time for Ludus Tours to expand our offering to the USA Bobsled and Skeleton community. ”

Ludus Tours is the Official Tour Operator for USA Curling, USA Luge and US Speedskating, among other sport national governing bodies.
