NPF Announces Plans to Host International Championship in 2012

The National Pro Fastpitch League (NPF) has announced plans to host the 2012 National Pro Fastpitch International Championship. Bill Conroy, President and CEO of NPF and the owner of the Chicago Bandits, will spearhead this event, which will coincide with the gold medal phase of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. 

The series of games will be hosted in NPF cities and stadiums and will feature the top international teams who will compete for the NPF International Championship. 

Conroy's vision is to help keep the dreams and aspirations of all young female athletes whose goal is to play beyond the collegiate ranks and realize their dream of one day competing in the Olympic Games in 2016 and beyond. 

In 2005, Conroy began his quest in solidifying the international partnerships by inviting National teams from China, Venezuela, Canada and Australia to compete against the Chicago Bandits. 

"We are very excited as a league and as a nation to perform a necessary function and help foster growth and demand for fast pitch softball. Our mission is to promote the sport in every country around the world and bring the sport back into prominence for the 2016 Olympic Games and beyond," said Conroy. "We will be vigilant in reaching our goal and look forward to the 2016 Olympic Games with great anticipation.”
