Moët & Chandon, one of the world’s largest champagne houses, today toasted a renewal of their agreement to be Preferred Supplier of Champagne to The 2010 Ryder Cup at The Celtic Manor Resort in Wales.
The new arrangement with Ryder Cup Europe brings Moët & Chandon’s association with The Ryder Cup to 17 years, following their initial introduction to the biennial event between Europe and the United States at The Belfry in 1993.
It also further underlines Moët & Chandon’s commitment to The European Tour, having recently agreed a new two year extension to continue as Official Supplier of Champagne to the Tour through 2009 and 2010.
This latest agreement ensures that Moët & Chandon will provide the champagne at all Official Ryder Cup functions and hospitality during the week of the contest between Colin Montgomerie’s European Team and the United States, led by Corey Pavin.
Graham Boyes, managing director of Moët Hennessy UK Ltd, said, "We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with The Ryder Cup since 1993 and are delighted to extend our agreement with Ryder Cup Europe through to The 2010 Ryder Cup at The Celtic Manor Resort.
“Golf has been important to Moët & Chandon for many years, both in Europe and globally and we are delighted to continue our strong association with the most exciting team event in world golf.”
George O’Grady, chief executive of The European Tour, said, "As Preferred Supplier of Champagne to The 2010 Ryder Cup, Moët & Chandon will be continuing a long and productive partnership with Ryder Cup Europe stretching back to 1993 at The Belfry.
“Moët & Chandon have been part of the family of European Tour Sponsors since 1994, and we are delighted that those equally close ties with The Ryder Cup are going forward to the 2010 match at The Celtic Manor Resort.”
