MidwayUSA Returns as Title Match Sponsor of the Bianchi Cup International Pistol Tournament

MidwayUSA is pleased to return as the Title Match Sponsor of the 2024 Bianchi Cup International Pistol Tournament and is excited to welcome shooters worldwide to Mid-Missouri.

“The prestigious Bianchi Cup has a longstanding history of showcasing some of the best pistol shooters in the world,” said Matt Fleming, President & CEO of MidwayUSA. “We’re pleased to participate in this great shooting sports tradition.”

Founded in 1979 by former police officer and holster maker John Bianchi, the Bianchi Cup is a premier stop on the action pistol tournament circuit. One of the longest-running pistol championships in the world, the competition is open to all competitors who are members of their respective National Shooting Federations. Shooters will compete in several divisions across multiple events, including the Barricade, Falling Plate, Practical, and Moving Target. New in 2024, a Rimfire Division will be added along with Provisional Divisions for Production and Production Optics.

“The Civilian Marksmanship Program is absolutely thrilled to once again take the helm of the legendary Bianchi Cup International Pistol Competition,” exclaimed Christie Sewell, Chief Programs Officer of the CMP. “Our programs staff, alongside the dedicated Green Valley club members, have crafted an exceptional event packed with an exciting new Rimfire event, sponsorship awards, giveaways, cash prizes, and stunning cup trophies. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all our sponsors, especially MidwayUSA, for their unwavering support of the CMP Bianchi Cup. Entries for the 2024 Bianchi Cup have increased by 5% from last year, and the CMP team is buzzing with excitement to host and continue growing this prestigious pistol tournament.”

This year’s competition will be held May 21-24 at the Green Valley Rifle & Pistol Club in Hallsville, Missouri. Spectators are invited to attend the championship each day.
