Sporte Leisure the President’s elect

Sporte Leisure will be the exclusive on-site merchandise operator for this year’s much-anticipated Presidents Cup at Royal Melbourne Golf Club.

Sporte Leisure has a strong pedigree in running merchandise for top-tier sporting events, after not only handling the last Presidents Cup in Australia in 1998, but also being currently responsible for the Australian Open – both men’s and women’s, Australian PGA, as well as previously being involved in most major golf events in Australia.

“We have been working with the PGA Tour in the USA for quite a while,” said Matt Meredith, CEO of Sporte Leisure Australia.

“We are extremely excited at being awarded the exclusive on-site merchandise licence for The Presidents Cup 2011.”

“This is going to be the most exciting week of golf in Australian history and I feel it is quite appropriate that one of the last major Australian-owned golf companies has such a significant role in the event.

“Our goal is to make the merchandise a true highlight of this amazing tournament.”

Sporte Leisure will also handle off-site and corporate merchandise for the event.
