The Drone Champions League puts female drone pilots in the global spotlight with the DCL Women's Cup

The Drone Champions League puts female drone pilots in the global spotlight with the DCL Women's Cup

The Drone Champions League aims to provide a global platform for female drone pilots. Starting in 2021, women will be able to showcase their racing talents in the DCL Women's Cup

PR Newswire

VIENNA, April 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Drone Champions League, a world-renowned league where the best FPV drone pilots in the world compete for their teams to become world champions, is proud to announce the launch of the DCL Women's Cup.

The female pilots will be part of the eight main teams competing in the DCL World Championship 2021. They will represent these teams in the DCL Women's Cup 2021. The two competitions will run in parallel but will not overlap. However, female pilots may be selected for the DCL World Cup 2021 if teams wish to be represented in both tournaments.

Female pilots to inspire

The goal is to shine a light on the talent of women in drone racing. They are often sidelined despite their brilliant skills. In the DCL Women's Cup, they will be given the opportunity to join a team and benefit from the support that comes with it. Most importantly, they will be able to demonstrate their skills in challenging races in front of a global audience of millions.

We want to inspire girls and women, get them excited about drone sports and grow the entire FPV community.

We are very excited to launch the Cup and look forward to seeing even more rousing races in 2021!

About the Drone Champions League

The Drone Champions League (DCL) is the recognized championship for professional drone racing teams: an innovative racing series that blends the boundaries between virtual and reality. Since 2016, DCL has brought together the world's best drone pilots, who qualify for each race via DCL - The Game and then compete in international teams in some of the world's most spectacular locations, from global capitals to surreal natural wonders.

The LED-lit racing drones, controlled by pilots wearing virtual reality goggles, fly head-to-head and at more than 160 km/h through the customized tracks. Whoever finishes first wins, and the gaps between the drones are only marginal. Every DCL race is broadcast live on TV and online worldwide. In 2021, the DCL season with DCL - The Game will be held in a virtual world with real replicated cities.

DCL partners include Breitling, sportsWorld and IQONIQ. For more information: www.dcl.aero.
