ProSports International, the exclusive Middle East distributor of FootJoy, has been confirmed as the Official Apparel of the 17th Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.
The US$2.5 million tournament will be held at Doha Golf Club from January 22 to 25, in the middle of The European Tour’s three-week Middle East swing.
Dubai-based ProSports has been the tournament’s Official Apparel since 2011 and will mark its fourth successive year of sponsorship by outfitting all tournament organisers in FootJoy clothing. FootJoy is renowned as being the No.1 shoe and glove in golf.
ProSports International general manager Geoff Hunter said: “ProSports is proud to sponsor the 2014 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters and extend its support of one of the Middle East’s leading sports events.
“FootJoy is one of the world’s most famous golf brands, so will be an ideal fit as Official Apparel of this prestigious and popular tournament that has long attracted the best golfers from around the globe.”
ProSports has long supported international golf, rugby and horse racing events, and represents a wide range of international brands including Titleist, Ping, FootJoy, Bolle, Bushnell, Gilbert Rugby, Grays Hockey and Greg Norman Collection.
Commercial Bank CEO Abdulla Saleh al-Raisi said the extended support of sponsors such as ProSports reflects continuing confidence in the tournament as it helps promote golf in the country.
“ProSports International’s continuing support of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters is a firm sign of the event’s prestige and its ability to keep growing in stature since being established as a fixture on The European Tour since 1998,” al-Raisi said.
“Qatar’s reputation for hosting world-class sporting events is expanding every year and the Qatar Golf Association, Qatar Olympic Committee and Commercial Bank of Qatar are proud to work with ProSports International for a fourth year.”
World No. 3 Henrik Stenson, World No. 10 Sergio Garcia, 2013 PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner, former World No. 1 Luke Donald, multiple major champions Ernie Els and John Daly, 20-time European Tour winner Miguel Angel Jiménez and titleholder Chris Wood are among the star players in the field.
The event will have a Wednesday-Saturday run and the evening entertainment will begin from 6pm on Thursday and Friday. Both single-day (Thursday/Friday) and season tickets include entry to the concerts, which include American performers Divas of Soul on Thursday and Scottish band Texas on Friday.
Season tickets provide exceptional value, offering access to all four days of golf action, the public village and all evening entertainment for just QAR325, more than 40% less than four single-day tickets.
