Ryder Cup Europe has announced KPMG as an Official Partner to The 2010 Ryder Cup, taking place at The Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, South Wales on 1st – 3rd October, which extends the partnership into a third Ryder Cup.

KPMG was an Official Partner to The Ryder Cup at The Belfry, England, in 2002 and at The K Club, Ireland, in 2006 and the announcement further strengthens the strong links between KPMG, Ryder Cup Europe and The European Tour.

Tim Flynn, chairman of KPMG International, said, “KPMG is delighted to be involved – once again – with The Ryder Cup, one of the world’s premier sporting events. This is an exciting opportunity to link the KPMG brand with an event that has immense international popularity, prestige and credibility.”

KPMG has been involved in several specialist projects commissioned by The European Tour to gain a thorough understanding of the golf market place and develop new commercial opportunities for the Tour.

Richard Hills, Ryder Cup Director, said, “We are delighted to continue our partnership with KPMG for a third Ryder Cup. The support of world class brands and companies such as KPMG further enhances the image and status of The Ryder Cup and helps promote the game on the global stage. KPMG has been an integral part of The Ryder Cup for many years and we look forward to working together in making The 2010 Ryder Cup at The Celtic Manor Resort every success.”

The announcement supports The Ryder Cup objective of working with global brands to enhance the status of the event and develop strategic international relationships with leaders in key markets and product sectors. Further announcements regarding the commercial programme will be made in the near future.
