Founding Sponsors

The USBGF salutes the individuals and organizations who have generously supported our federation by becoming Founding Sponsors.

Founding Sponsors have provided the seed capital needed for the launch of the U.S. Backgammon Federation. In appreciation of this support, a doubles event pairing Founding Sponsors with Giants of Backgammon —  The Tournament of Stars — is held annually honoring the Founding Sponsors who have been instrumental in the success of the organization. We welcome additional Founding Sponsors who wish to be in on the ground floor of this exciting force for the growth and enjoyment of backgammon!
