posted on 23/11/2015: 1894 views



LONDON, UK: Emirates Airline and the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) have elevated their partnership announcing Emirates Airline as the Premier Partner of the ATP World Tour from 2016.

The five-year agreement represents the biggest sponsorship deal in the history of the ATP, the governing body of the men's professional tennis circuits - the ATP World Tour, the ATP Challenger Tour and the ATP Champions Tour.

As Official Airline and Premier Partner of the ATP World Tour, Emirates will benefit from global marketing rights delivering a powerful and consistent presence via the Tour's iconic net branding across 60 tournaments in 29 countries in six continents, and a cumulative global broadcast audience in excess of 800 million. With 4.3 million fans attending on-site and more than 880 million dedicated TV viewers across the season, the Tour has attracted record audiences in recent years.

The partnership also provides a platform across the tournaments for fans and guests to experience Emirates' unrivalled hospitality onsite, and participate in extensive activation through the Tour's official website ATPWorldTour.com, the No.1 tennis portal in the world with over 325M visits a year.

"Emirates is pleased to enhance its partnership with the ATP World Tour. For Emirates, the global reach offered by sponsoring the ATP World Tour affords us the opportunity to connect and engage with millions of tennis fans around the globe. Emirates offers direct flights to nearly 90 percent of the 32 countries visited by the ATP World Tour making this partnership particularly relevant for our customers. Tennis truly is an international sport and it is our own appreciation of this sport that has been the catalyst behind our growing tennis sponsorship portfolio,' said Boutros Boutros, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President Corporate Communications, Marketing and Brand.

‘It says a lot about where we are as a sport that an industry leader in Emirates, such a highly regarded and well established player in the sports marketing world, has chosen to further increase its presence and association with the ATP World Tour," said Chris Kermode, ATP Executive Chairman & President. "The partnership provides a long term commitment and a true vote of confidence for the future health of our sport. We look forward to continuing and developing the successful partnership we have built over the years."

The 2015 ATP World Tour season, due to culminate this Sunday at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals at The O2 in London, is currently tracking to hit an all-time annual attendance record.

Emirates has been a Platinum partner of the ATP World Tour since 2013, as well as title sponsor of the Emirates ATP Rankings. Today's announcement sees Emirates replace Corona as the Tour's Premier Partner following the expiration of the agreement with the Mexican beer brand at the end of this year.

Emirates' tennis portfolio includes some of the highest profile events on the tennis calendar, including the Grand Slams the Australian Open, Roland Garros and the US Open, the Emirates Airline US Open Series, the Australian Open Series, the ATP rankings, the Dubai Tennis Championships (UAE), Barcelona Open (ESP) and Rogers Cup (CAN). – Emirates News Agency, WAM -http://www.wam.ae/en/news/economics/1395288328533.html
