AT&T announced it is now the official sponsor of professional golfer Maria Fassi. The sponsorship begins as the LPGA golfer hits the course at the Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio Jan. 20 – 26.
With this deal, AT&T continues its commitment to professional golf and the charities and communities it supports through the sponsorship of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the Augusta National Women’s Amateur, the Masters, Volunteers of America LPGA Texas Classic and AT&T Athlete Jordan Spieth.
“Sports need role models like Maria whose incredible skills on the course and character beyond it continually elevate the game of golf for women and for all athletes,” said Lori Lee, Global Marketing Officer for AT&T Inc. and CEO AT&T Latin America. “We’re committed to raising the visibility of women in sports and are thrilled to have Maria join our team.”
“I’m excited to be a part of the AT&T family and represent the brand for the first time as an AT&T Athlete this week at Gainbridge,” said Maria Fassi. “It’s great to be supported by a company that’s championed golf for decades, gives back to communities and supports up-and-coming athletes like me.”
Elements of the sponsorship include AT&T logo placement on Maria’s bag, sleeve, towel and phone case.
