Simon Bucks,

Chief Executive Officer, BFBS

BFBS is delighted to be supporting the UKAFWSA again this year. Our mission is to entertain, inform, connect, and champion the armed forces, and winter sports are the perfect vehicle for doing all four.

The thrills and (occasional) spills of the competitions on the slopes provide fantastic entertainment for spectators and participants alike.

We are the only professional media organisation committed to reporting on all military sports: on BFBS radio and TV, online at and on the Forces News social media channels.

Our news and sports coverage provides a forum for serving personnel, veterans, and their families to connect through a common bond.

And we are proud to champion the incredible sportsmen and women in the armed forces, telling their success stories to the military community and wider public.

I and my BFBS colleagues send our best wishes to everyone competing in armed forces winter sports over the coming season. Good luck and God speed.
