Selected for the LIEBHERR Men’s World Cup, staged in Paris in November 2011, the German manufacturer DONIC will once again be the table sponsor and supplier in 2012 when the tournament is staged in Liverpool from Friday 28th to Sunday 30th September. Not only will DONIC be the sponsor in 2012; brokered by TMS International, the marketing partner of the International Table Tennis Federation, DONIC will be the table sponsor and supplier for the prestigious competition for a further three years. A deal has been signed that extends the current agreement to 2015.
“The ITTF is extremely pleased that DONIC took the initiative and requested an extension to the sponsorship as the table supplier for the Men’s World Cup”, said Adham SHARARA, ITTF President. “This initiative was received with open arms by the ITTF, as we look for a long term partnership with DONIC and innovative table designs; it goes without saying that DONIC provides “state-of-the-art” tables for this prestigious ITTF World Title event.”
Notably Sweden’s Jan-Ove WALDNER and Jorgen PERSSON are two of the most celebrated names the company has supported. More recently, two of Europe’s most exciting young players Germany’s Dimitrij OVTCHAROV and Russia’s Kirill SKACHKOV, have signed contracts with DONIC.
“The Men’s World Cup is one of the most important and image enhancing tournaments on the world table tennis circuit”, said Frank SCHREINER, the President of DONIC. “We are very pleased that the ITTF has confidence in our brand and has agreed to prolong the agreement as the table supplier for the Men’s World Cup for further five years.”
Confidence in the brand most certainly, the company has a reputation for excellence with the International Table Tennis Federation not being the only organisation to place faith in the company.
