Alpari affirms World Match Racing Tour commitment
Foreign exchange broker Alpari has signed up to become an official boat sponsor of the Stena Match Cup Sweden for the second consecutive year.
The event, which takes place from 1st to 6th July, is the third stage of the Alpari World Match Racing Tour (AWMRT), which Alpari has title sponsored since February 2012. The company also supports a participating team, known as Team Alpari FX.
Chantelle Johnson, the global head of marketing at Alpari UK, said: “We feel passionately about the sport of sailing and have chosen to partner with the AWMRT and Team Alpari FX because we believe that sailing fans and traders share the same enthusiasm and drive to succeed.
“We are delighted to support this important stage of the 2013 AWMRT again this year, in addition to our commitments to the tour and our sailing team. The increased brand exposure on the boats during this major event will help us reach out to an even larger audience worldwide.”
Elsewhere in the AWMRT, the USOne Sailing Team has announced Smith Optics as its official eyewear provider.
“Smith Optics has proven to be a leader in the world of high-end optic lenses, a name and brand that USone is very proud to be in association with,” said the team’s skipper Taylor Canfiled.
