Ernst & Young signs Ryder Cup partnership

Ernst & Young has been named as an official partner of the Ryder Cup.

The deal, which covers the 2012 and 2014 events, was confirmed at Gleneagles earlier.

The 39th Ryder Cup will be held from September 28th–30th, 2012, at the Medinah Country Club, Illinois.

Gleneagles will then host the 2014 event.

Richard Hills, the European Ryder Cup director, said: “Ernst & Young is, like The Ryder Cup, a thriving global brand and we look forward to developing our new partnership over the course of the next two years.”

Ernst & Young join Rolex, BMW, Diageo and Emirates as official European Ryder Cup partners.

Jay Nibbe, Ernst & Young’s markets leader for Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India, added: “We are delighted to be an official partner of such a prestigious sporting occasion.

“The challenge of creating, building and managing teams has as much resonance in the business world as it does The Ryder Cup. Ernst & Young understands that in sport, as in business, you succeed by getting talent to work together.”
