Auckland City Sponsors Auckland Tennis

8 May 2000


Auckland Tennis will receive sponsorship of $35,000 from Auckland City toward funding for its Heineken Open and ASB BANK Classic Tennis Tournaments to be staged next January.

Chairperson of the City Attractions Committee, Councillor Victoria Carter, says the committee recognises the growing stature of these tennis tournaments.

The annual events attract more than 40,000 spectators and top international tennis players.

Promotions for the tournament will include more than 25 hours of national television coverage and significant international coverage, including a magazine programme to be broadcast to 30 major countries.

Branding opportunities for Auckland City include year-round courtside signage and advertising options.

Auckland Tennis received $50,000 in sponsorship from Auckland City for this year’s tournaments held in January and applied for $75,000 for 2001 because of increased costs to run the events.

However, Cr Carter says that with many other worthwhile events requiring funding from their main events budget, the committee could not fund the full amount requested by Auckland Tennis.
