Peugeot has extended its partnership agreement with British tennis star, Jamie Murray. The partnership, which originally started in 2015, will continue to support Murray in his competition efforts all over the world until 2020.
Over the last two years, Jamie Murray, has played a part in a range of Peugeot initiatives such as handing over the keys to a fleet of high-specification Peugeot 208 hatchbacks to the Lawn Tennis Association.
Mark Pickles, Peugeot UK Marketing Director, said: “We’re delighted that we’re able to extend our partnership with Jamie for another two years. Peugeot’s international ambassadors personify the brand’s values – excellence and performance – and Jamie does just that with his outstanding commitment to tennis. We have long-standing links with the tennis world so it’s an honour to be able to support such a high-profile player who is doing so much for the sport.”
Jamie Murray added: “It’s fantastic that Peugeot has extended our partnership for another two years. It is great to be associated with a brand that has been so closely aligned with the tennis world for over 40 years. Peugeot’s unparalleled support has helped me to thrive in my career and I look forward to taking on the next chapter with its backing.”
Peugeot has a rich history in the sport of tennis which dates back to the 1970s. Over the years it has partnered with the Roland-Garros and the ATP World Tour.
Peugeot announced its global partnership with ATP in 2016 in which Peugeot was named the Official Car supplier with a fleet of 500 vehicles worldwide. The vehicles include the award-winning 3008 SUV, award-winning all-new 5008 SUV, and the Peugeot Traveller– providing first-class transportation services for players, officials, VIPs and special guests to the events.
