Professional boxer, Stacey Copeland joins our team as our new Community Ambassador
Today we are very proud to have confirmed that professional Team GB and England boxer Stacey Copeland will be joining our team as our first ever Community Ambassador.
The three-time national champion Stacey, from Hyde, Tameside, joins Olympic Gold medallist Joanna Rowsell-Shand and running legend Ron Hill MBE as an ambassador for Sports Tours International.
Commenting on her new role, Stacey said: “I’m delighted to be an ambassador for a company which represents so many of the values which are close to my heart. I’m passionate about encouraging people to be active because of the positive impact it has on our overall wellbeing, and I know the difference it can make not only on individuals but also on whole communities. For me personally, sport has been an incredible force in my life, I hope to inspire others so that they can experience that, too!”
As part of her role Stacey will be supporting a number of UK events, including competing in the iconic Tour of Tameside running event, as well as regular blogs sharing her experiences and training tips with customers.
Chris Bird, our CEO here at Sports Tours International, commented: “We are very excited to welcome Stacey as our community sports ambassador. Our mission is to create the world’s largest active lifestyle community and whilst we are an international brand, it’s important to engage with our local communities in the North West too. Not only is Stacey focused on encouraging young people to get active, she is a fantastic role model for inspiring girls and women in sport.”
Stacey loved football and boxing from an early age, but boxing was illegal for women so her career started in football, playing in the women’s Premier League and in an FA Cup Final.
In 2011, Stacey made her boxing debut and has gone on to win a European silver, three national titles, multi nations gold and medalled at numerous international tournaments.
A great asset to any organisation at home or abroad. Have seen Stacey in action on several occasions in UK and overseas and a credit to her country and a great representative.

It was a wild weekend at the Marathon du Mont Blanc. Sadly the weather closed in and put paid to some events but a number of our runners completed the full marathon around Europe’s highest peak. Congratulations to everyone on a mega achievement 🏔
