By Community | September 27, 2012

Giles Morgan, Head of Sponsorship at HSBC has revealed they have no interest in adding the Ryder Cup to their golf sponsorship roster in the future.

Morgan suggests HSBC are more interested in events where their brand can dominate like current sponsored events the HSBC Champions, HSBC Women’s Champions, Abu Dhabi HSBC World Championship and they are also official patrons of the Open Championship.

When asked by iSportconnect whether they are looking to sponsor the event, he said: “We have no plans to, the Ryder Cup is a wonderful event, but in golf we prefer to be involved in events that we can dominate with our branding and experience.

“It’s a wonderful event and I’m going to be lucky enough to be going but I don’t see us sponsoring the Ryder Cup anytime soon.”
