The inaugural 2015 European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan have secured a new sponsor with watch brand Tissot coming on board as the official timekeeper and partner of the event.
The 2015 European Games are the inaugural edition of a continental European Games, with Baku chosen to host the event on December 8, 2012, during a European Olympic Committee General Assembly in Rome.
Tissot will also be provided exclusive rights to use the Baku 2015 Games marks, logos, and designations worldwide.
“We are looking forward to working with everyone at BEGOC [Baku European Games Organising Committee] to ensure the smooth running of the Baku 2015 European Games,” said François Thiébaud, President of Tissot.
“These Games reflect the Tissot spirit perfectly by its diversity and the incredible dynamism it projects.
“We are proud to be able to demonstrate our skills at such an incredible event, which allows us to showcase our abilities in many different ways.
“It also allows us to prove ourselves as timekeeping requires the most accurate measurement and further confirms the quality of our watches.”
