The 2019 Solheim Cup is setting up to be the most successful ever, with strong ticket sales, high levels of interest in the hospitality programme, hundreds of volunteers signed up and a number of commercial partners signed up.
IMG and Visit Scotland today announced the addition of Ricoh, Highland Spring and Carryway as event partners adding to a burgeoning team of internationally-renowned brands backing The Solheim Cup at Gleneagles, 9th to 15th September 2019.
With just under a year to go, interest in the 2019 match has been unprecedented in terms of sponsorship, with a stable of global partners that includes Ping, Rolex and VisitScotland. Ricoh joins as the Official Office Equipment Partner, Highland Spring joins as the Official Hydration Partner, while Carryway comes on board as the Official Golf Cart Supplier. IMG and Visit Scotland will be announcing further commercial partners in the New Year.
Beyond sponsorship, the 2019 Solheim Cup is experiencing significant interest with thousands of tickets already sold, some ticket categories ‘sold-‘out’ and pre-registration for official hospitality exceeding projections. The Volunteer Application Programme is over-subscribed by as much as 100% and the event is now closed to new applications.
Joe FitzPatrick, Minister for Public Health, Sport and Wellbeing, commented: “We are delighted at the incredible support we have received to host The 2019 Solheim Cup. The enthusiasm of these premium international brands to be a part of the match at Gleneagles is so encouraging as they too share in Scotland’s commitment to raising the international profile of women’s golf and delivering a world-class event in September 2019.”
