America’s Cup Energy Team name Corum as sponsor

July 22, 2011

The Energy Team which is the French entry for the America’s Cup has agreed a sponsorship deal with luxury watch manufacturer, viagra 40mg Corum. The company becomes Energy Team’s first official sponsor.

The Chief executive of Corum, Antonio Calce said: “This major project is a further step in our strategy that I announced and launched several years back. Taking part in the America’s Cup is the dream of every sailor and for that reason matches the aspirations of a brand like Corum, which since 1960 has been a key player in the sector. The close relationship based on trust that has developed between Corum and the Peyron brothers has enabled this dream to come true.”

Team sailor of French entry Bruno Peyron added: “It is with immense pleasure that our team welcomes Corum on board as the official partner of Energy Team. It takes courage to be the first, as there are on the one hand doubters and then on the other those, who are determined to make their own destiny. Antonio Calce is one of the latter and the atmosphere of mutual trust that we are building together is probably down to what we already have in common: a great desire to see things through. The support of Corum is vital and this commitment will act as a catalyst to attract other major partners and allow us to get going in building our first AC 72.”

As part of the deal the Corum logo will feature heavily on the team’s boat including across the sail.
