BMW confirmed as worldwide Ryder Cup sponsor
BMW has been confirmed as a Worldwide Partner of The Ryder Cup for Whistling Straits, in Wisconsin, in 2020 and Marco Simone, in Italy, in 2022.
BMW has extended its association with The Ryder Cup having first been the Official Car Partner for Ryder Cup Europe at The K Club back in 2006 and then an Official Partner at Celtic Manor in 2010, Gleneagles in 2014, and Le Golf National this year.
This partnership will now include matches on both side of the Atlantic, and underlines BMW’s commitment to the game of golf worldwide.
BMW has also renewed its status as an Official Partner of the European Tour for another four years and will continue as title sponsor of the BMW PGA Championship and BMW International Open until 2022.
Bernhard Kuhnt, President and CEO of BMW of North America, said: “We are delighted to join forces with the PGA of America and Ryder Cup Europe in a shared mission to drive golf’s top international event to even greater heights. As a supporter of golf globally for the past 30 years, golf remains the perfect platform for our brand to engage our network of owners, dealers and golf fans across the world.”
Guy Kinnings, European Ryder Cup Director, said: “Like The Ryder Cup, BMW is a global brand so we are delighted to extend our long-standing partnership. BMW has been an important part of the Ryder Cup’s growth and success over the past 12 years, so we are extremely pleased this will continue not only in Italy in 2022, but also when we travel to the United States in 2020.”
