October 16, 2012
Danish golf footwear brand Ecco has extended its sponsorship of the 2013 European Solheim Cup Team.
Ecco’s involvement extends back to 2005 and they have been a keen supporter of Team Europe ever since:
“ECCO is delighted to be footwear supplier to The 2013 European Solheim Cup Team for the 4th time. This biennial match between Europe and US has become one of the true highlights of ladies golf. This event is a tribute to the game of golf and we look forward to next year’s match in Colorado. ECCO will supply the ultimate walking comfort and swing stability to the European Team in order to perform their best in their efforts to bring back the Solheim Cup to Europe. We wish the European Team all the best of luck at The 2013 Solheim Cup” says Jesper Thuen – Global Marking Manager ECCO Golf.
Ecco will supply shoes for players, medicine caddies and team helpers to ensure that once again Team Europe will be best prepared when they land in the US in their attempt to retain The Cup and win on US soil for the first time in the history of the event.
“We are truly delighted that Ecco will once again support Team Europe and be part of the family of sponsors and suppliers that will service the team. It is exceptionally important that we have this support especially for an away match in the US, where it is crucial that we have as strong European group as possible travelling over to Colorado Golf Club next August. We thank Ecco for their continued commitment,” stated Marc Anderman, European Solheim Cup Manager.
The 2013 Solheim Cup will take place 13-18 August at Colorado Golf Club in Parker, Colorado. The European Team enters the competition holding the Cup and will need 14 points to retain it, with the U.S. Team needing 14½ points to regain the coveted Waterford Crystal prize. The U.S. team holds an 8-4 lead in the matches, which began in 1990
In addition to founding sponsor PING, Rolex is also a Global Partner of The Solheim Cup.
