Franck Riboud, Chairman of the Evian Championship, and Yves Perrier, CEO of Amundi announce that Amundi becomes, for a duration of five years, the title sponsor of The Evian Championship, the women’s golf major, and is renamed The Amundi Evian Championship for the occasion.
Amundi thus joins the tournament’s Sponsors’ Club. This partnership will enable the tournament to build even more international strength to serve women's golf globally. In fact, beginning with the 2021 edition, the prize purse will be increased to 4.5 million dollars. A rise of $400,000 that confirms the position of the women's major as one of the world's top women's golf tournaments, alongside the US Women’s Open and the AIG Women’s Open.
This partnership is perfectly in line with Amundi’s DNA, which through its presence in the world of golf since 2011, shares the values conveyed by this sport - those of precision, consistency, expertise and performance – with its customers.
We are delighted to become the title sponsor for this great tournament in women's sport that is The Evian Championship. The tournament's global reach will benefit Amundi, in particular in Asia, an important region for our company which has made it an essential component for its growth. We are committed over the next 5 years to supporting Europe's women golfers to enable them to emerge onto the international golf scene. Equal opportunity is indeed one of Amundi's core values.
