Sports Travel: Emirates on board at Roland Garros


Emirates continues to expand its association with tennis tournaments around the world.

It has been appointed official partner of the Roland Garros tournament in a five-year sponsorship deal, starting with the 2013 edition in Paris running between May 21-June 9.

Emirates branding will appear on the Centre Court as well as panels on competition courts.

In addition to a private lounge for Emirates guests at the Roland-Garros Village and boxes along the courts, Emirates will also have a dedicated area to welcome guests in the RG Lab, the Fan Zone area.

It marks the airline's third tennis sponsorship in Europe after the Internazionali BNL d'Italia (Italian Open) announced last year and the Barcelona Open, announced in March.

Other major tennis competitions sponsored by Emirates include the US Open, the Rogers Cup, BNP Paribas Open and the Tennis Championship.

Emirates is also the official airline of the ATP World Tour and sponsor of Emirates ATP rankings.
