Golf Australia, chief executive Stephen Pitt, said: “The Open has continued to build its on-course reputation with golfers and fans around the world,” Pitt said.
“This is, in part, because of the great partners we have grown with and there have been none better than Fujitsu. We’ve built on continuity, ongoing growth and value for money and we’re thrilled that Fujitsu has benefited from that and continues to offer us their support in return.”
Chief executive officer of Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, Mike Foster, added: “The Australian Open is one of the highest-profile sporting events on the Australian calendar.
“Our sponsorship resonates well with our customer base of senior executives from Australian enterprise and government organisations. We are pleased to be able to continue our strong relationship.”
